The EU is pressing every way to change the regime in Belarus, and does not even hide this in public discussions. This has for long been known and understood.
George Soros turned 90 years old. But despite that age, he is trying to influence processes around the world. In the USA he is trying to hinder President Trump, in Belarus he mixed up everything in such a way that it is still questionable whether this time “batko” Lukashenko will endure, and in Lebanon, he is committing bloody riots.
Recurring disinformation narrative about the billionaire and the philanthropist George Soros, presenting him as a person who aims to control political systems in the world and presenting Open Society Foundation as a tool for organising colour revolutions. Soros has been accused of a wide range of sins such as: destabilising Europe, attacking churches and traditional values as well as sponsoring the film "Joker" as a tutorial for colour revolutions. In this claim, new unsubstantiated accusations appeared - involvement in the events in Lebanon and Belarus. Pro-Kremlin media often paint popular protests as "colour revolutions" provoked by Soros. This is also present in the case of Georgia, Ukraine, Czechia, Venezuela, Bulgaria, Armenia, Slovakia and now in Belarus. In Belarus, the foundation is not active. Soros foundation used to operate there between 1993-1997, with branches in Minsk and Vitebsk but stopped operations due to conflicts with the authorities.
