DISINFO: In Belarus, Poland and Lithuania implement Washington’s policy of destabilising the post-Soviet region
[In terms of the current events in Belarus], there is no doubt that Poland and Lithuania are one of the subcontractors of the destabilisation policy of the post-Soviet region, consistently implemented by Washington for many years. Pompeo acknowledged that the Belarusian issues were discussed during his visit, most probably Poland simply received concrete instructions from the USA on this issue.
Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative about the US presence in Europe, alleging that the United States fully controls the foreign policy of the EU member states, including Poland, Ukraine and the Baltic states (these countries are often presented as American “vassals” or puppet states). The Kremlin-controlled media regularly accuses the political elites of Poland and Lithuania of Russophobia and the implementation of anti-Russian policies. Poland and Lithuania are independent states, which shape their own foreign and domestic policies without any “dictate” from the USA. The claim that Poland and Lithuania try to “destabilise the post-Soviet region” is a classical Kremlin’s conspiracy theory. See other examples of this message claiming that Polish policy towards Ukraine is shaped by the Americans, the US keeps Poland on a short anti-Russian leash, and Poland is a Trojan Horse of the United States. This message appeared in the same article as two other disinformation messages about Poland having a plan to interference in Belarus and Poland and Poland using the 100th anniversary of the Battle of Warsaw in order to trigger anti-Russian sentiments for further militarisation of this country.
