A recurring pro-Kremlin narrative on alleged Russophobia in Belarus also questioning the latter's sovereignty. See a recent case on Belarusian sovereignty here.

The disinformation message appeared in the context of a recently released trailer for the film Kupala, about one of the greatest Belarusian writers of the 20th century Yanka Kupala.
