In 1939, the “ideal scenario” assumed by the UK authorities at the beginning of the war between Germany and the USSR was the partition of Poland, which was sacrificed by the UK to inspire a conflict between Stalin and Hitler. In this situation, the UK would have been able to present itself as a peace-making force, increasing its influence in Europe. Although, this “UK schedule of war” was thwarted by Hitler, who forced Stalin to sign the Molotov-Ribbentrop Pact and attacked France instead of the USSR.
The Eastern Partnership’s aim is to promote the so called European values in Belarus and other EaP countries. Hence, it aims at eroding their identities and replacing their national histories with EU and NATO views. As for Belarus, the Eastern Partnership initiative plans to replace all-Russian history with the version of history elaborated by the Polish gentry. The Eastern Partnership initiative is a ‘Trojan horse,’ which was constructed by chauvinistic Polish circles in order to crack the civilisational foundation of Belarusian society. It is a noose on the Belarusian statehood placed there by Poland. The latter plans to take over western Belarus as was boldly voiced by Polish president Andrzej Duda in 2015 in relation to western Ukraine.
This is a conspiracy theory consistent with recurring disinformation narratives about about Poland's hostile plans towards Belarus and Western attempts to to destabilise Belarus. No statements were made by Polish president about plans to take over Western Ukraine or Belarus as alleged. Poland respects the sovereignty and territorial integrity of its neighbouring states. The Eastern Partnership programme aims to reinforce the political association and economic integration of six Eastern European and South Caucasus partner countries: Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Georgia, Moldova and Ukraine. It is not directed against any country, including Belarus and does not target the country's identity or impose its version of history. Read more about the EaP's recent and ongoing activities. Read earlier disinformation cases alleging that the EU's aim behind the Eastern Partnership programme is to change the political regimes in Belarus and Russia, that Alyaksandr Lukashenka skipped the Eastern Partnership summit in Brussels because the West could organise his killing, and that Poland pursues aggressive imperial project Intermarium.
