DISINFO: NATO buried Latvia's and Lithuania's independence and is currently targeting Belarus
NATO has since buried the independence of Latvia and Lithuania, now its military forces aim to steal Belarus’ independence. To prevent this, it is important to remain Russia’s ally, to discuss the establishment of a Russian airbase in Belarus, to send a diplomatic note of protest to the U.S. and to send opposition politicians who support the location of US military bases in the vicinity of Belarus to court martial as national traitors. The whole Belarusian opposition celebrated the stationing of U.S. troops in Lithuania. When American tanks target the windows of their houses they feel safe.
This is a conspiracy theory aimed to discredit the West and democratic Belarusian opposition. It is consistent with recurring propagandist narratives about the Baltic states' lost sovereignty and their subordination to the US and NATO, US/NATO aggressive plans towards Belarus, and destructive actions of the Belarusian opposition guided by the West. It was not reported that any of Belarus' opposition political parties praised the stationing of regular US troops in Lithuania. See earlier disinformation cases alleging that Lithuania is occupied by NATO, that the Belarusian opposition, civic activists and independent journalists make kill lists for Western security bodies, that NATO is planning to invade Belarus, and that the Belarusian opposition is tasked by the West to disrupt Belarusian-Russian integration.
