DISINFO: "Lublin Triangle" - the organiser of the coup in Belarus


The “Lublin Triangle” – the organiser of the coup in Belarus. This seemingly harmless organisation is trying to become an instrument of external management of interesting “Maidan” processes in Belarus.


Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative about Belarus. The Lublin Triangle has nothing to do with the mass protests in Belarus: hundreds of thousands of Belarusians have been protesting against a massive vote-rigging and police violence since 9 August 2020. On 16 August 2020 Belarus witnessed the largest rallies in the city of Minsk and dozens smaller towns and localities in its history. There were no attempts to “interfere in the internal affairs” of Belarus from the side of the Lublin Triangle. On the contrary, on August 10, the union offered its assistance in establishing an open dialogue between the Belarusian authorities and the opposition: “We are confident that only by means of dialogue the current situation can be resolved for the benefit of the people and the state of Belarus. In case of the need, we are open for any assistance or good offices in facilitating this dialogue," the statement of the Foreign Ministers of the Lublin Triangle emphasises. Also, representatives of the initiative called on the Belarusian authorities to stop violence against the protesters and release the detained activists. The Lublin Triangle isa new regional initiative that will focus on developing and enhancing the economic, political, and cultural ties of Ukraine, Poland, and Lithuania. It will also serve as an important mechanism for strengthening Central Europe and promoting Ukraine's European and Euroatlantic integration. Read the similar case claiming that The Lublin Triangle is an anti-Russian coalition of Russophobes.
