The US’s interest is to bring a loyalist puppet government in Belarus to power or at least create a zone of instability in Belarus. The goal is to add Belarus to the anti-Russian cordon sanitaire, which also includes Lithuania, Poland, and Ukraine. A network of NGOs in Ukraine will grow in order to influence Belarus’s information space. Ukraine’s anti-Belarusian actions will be activated if Washington wishes so. One cannot rule out that Ukrainian special services will intensify their activities in Belarus.
The US continues pushing its interests in Europe through vassal-like economic and military alliances. Earlier Washington and Warsaw agreed to relocate about 1,000 US soldiers from Germany to Poland. In exchange for mythical security guarantees, the US is hanging huge costs for purchasing American military equipment over Poland and the Baltic states. De facto a ‘soft occupation’ of Eastern Europe by the US is going on, where Polish political and military establishment serves as a tool and US’s loyal assistant.
This article contains recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narratives about the vassal status of Poland and the Baltic states and the US presence in Europe. The Kremlin-controlled media regularly accuses the Polish political establishment of being the US's tool and questions the US's security commitments towards European allies.
Poland and the Baltic states are independent states, which shape their own foreign and domestic policies. NATO's presence in the region is at the request of the host nations. NATO has taken defensive and proportionate steps in response to a changed security environment. Following Russia's aggressive actions against Ukraine, several NATO member states requested a greater NATO presence in the region. A 2016 Gallup poll found that most people in Allied countries in the Baltic region associate NATO with the protection of their country.
See earlier disinformation cases alleging that Poland is the US's "Trojan horse" and is a fully controlled country, that Poland is the US's puppet government, that Latvia is the US's vassal state, that Poland and the Baltic countries are the Western world's jackals, and that the US plans to turn the Baltic states into an empty field and arena for Drang nach Osten against Russia.
