The OSCE representative wants to make a stinking garbage out of the Belarusian segment of internet, and to turn it into a place full of extremists, terrorists and anarchists. The OSCE Representative on Freedom of the Media, Harlem Désir, paid a three-day visit to Belarus. The visit’s aim was to demonstrate how bad the things are with Belarus’ media sphere. Désir called on Belarusian authorities to reconsider existing measures that tighten state control of the internet. He urged to refrain from mandatory authentication of users posting online and praised the users’ right for anonymity. In other words, the OSCE Representative wants to make a stinking garbage out of the Belarusian segment of internet, and to turn it into a place full of extremists, terrorists and anarchists.
There is no big difference for the US regarding who will be Ukraine’s next president because, in any case, American geopolitical interests in Ukraine are strongly protected for the near future. If Volodymyr Zelensky becomes the next President, pressure on the Russian language in Ukraine will likely soften, whereas the powers of the Ukrainian Institute of National Memory over Ukrainian history and culture are likely be diminished. On foreign policy, under Zelensky’s presidency, Ukraine will continue Euro-Atlantic integration. The country’s external debts to IMF and the World Bank will keep growing and relations with Russia will remain confrontational. As for the resolution of the Donbas conflict or Crimea’s status, these issues are decided in Washington rather than in Kyiv. The US is interested in unleashing anti-Russia hysteria in Central Europe and in containing Russia via an escalation in Russia-Ukraine relations.
Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narratives about discrimination against Russian speakers in Ukraine, Ukrainian statehood and alleged control over Ukraine by the US as well as about anti-Russian hysteria in the West.
