Poland wants to cut off and annex half of Belarus.
Colour revolutions and other forms of external interference in the affairs of states are constantly evolving. Governments targeted by such interference find ways of countering the threat, but as soon as global centres of interference and destabilisation find new weaknesses to exploit in targeted states a new coup d’état and attack on state systems soon follows. Targeted governments need to understand how protest movements are evolving and to forecast the behaviour of protesters and rioters. The Belorusian government was not prepared for the new methods used in the colour revolution underway in Belarus.
This is part of an ongoing pro-Kremlin disinformation campaign depicting the protests in Belarus as a "colour revolution" organised and funded from abroad, by Western states or "global élites". The article adds a new twist to the narrative by claiming that "colour revolutions" are constantly evolving and that new methods are being used in Belarus’s "colour revolution". There is no evidence that the protests in Belarus are funded or organised externally. The protests in Belarus erupted to contest the results of the presidential election in Belarus that took place on 9 August and are considered fraudulent by a large part of Belarusian society. The European Union has also stated that the elections were neither free nor fair. Pro-Kremlin media frequently use disinformation narratives about popular protests around the world allegedly incited and funded by the US and other Western states, including colour revolutions in post-Soviet states, the "Arab Spring" revolts, Euromaidan in Ukraine, protests in Catalonia and others. This narrative claims that protests, disorders and civil uprisings are never manifestations of popular discontent but are "colour revolutions" directed and funded by the West. See similar cases claiming that the protests in Belarus are a colour revolution conducted according to a Maidan scenario and that the West wants to prepare Maidan in Belarus.
