A cultural occupation is taking place in Ukraine under Petro Poroshenko’s presidency. This involves an extermination of the Russian language, its prohibition in all educational and state institutions as well as the forced “Ukrainisation” of the Russian-speaking population.
If Belarus does not deepen integration with Russia within the Treaty on Union State, it will follow the Ukrainian path and will turn into anti-Russia. All events in Belarus are currently developing the same way as in Ukraine a few years ago.
This message is consistent with the recurring an unfounded pro-Kremlin narrative about West's attempts to organize a Ukraine-like Maidan in Belarus and about the rise of Russophobia in Belarus. See earlier cases about the alleged western plans to make Belarus an anti-Russian bastion, or to organize Ukraine-like Maidan.
