EU funding aim to create a Maidan-like crisis in Belarus

Summary of Disinformation

The EU may collapse in the coming years as it cannot deal with migration crisis and political disagreements. Its unity is kept thanks to extensive development and enlargement. This is why Belarus is in the sphere of EU’s interests. The EU funds Belarusian nationalists, oppositions and NGOs and buys Belarusian officials with the aim to destabilize the country and create a Belarusian Maidan, followed by Belarus’ accession to the EU.

Disproof

 

No evidence given for the "Belarusian Maidan" or the EU's investment in its creation.

The EU is not buying Belarusian officials. EU assistance to Belarus aims at improving the quality of life of Belarusian citizens in a tangible and visible manner, by strengthening its economy, governance, connectivity and society. Find out more about the EU assistance to Belarus here.

The disinformation message is consistent with recurring pro-Kremlin narrative about the Western attempts to instigate colour revolutions in EU neighbourhood. Examples of earlier disinformation with a similar narrative here and here.
