DISINFO: NATO is planning to disrupt Belarusian-Russian relations


NATO works to involve Belarus in cooperation with the bloc and significantly reduce its military contacts with Russia, including within the framework of the Collective Security Treaty Organisation. Belarus is seen in the West as a strategic “key” to Eastern Europe, and Moscow must be deprived of this “key”. […] Western politicians work to undermine Russian-Belarusian relations, especially in anticipation of a possible deepening of integration between Belarus and the Russian Federation.


This is a conspiracy which is consistent with recurring pro-Kremlin narratives about Western aggressiveness and anti-Russian activities and the West's attempts to disrupt Belarus-Russia relations. Belarus and NATO cooperate in a number of areas, such as civil preparedness and defence reforms. Their partnership is based on the pursuit of common interests. NATO has no plans to disrupt the relations between Belarus and Russia. See earlier disinformation alleging that the West is targeting the Union State between Belarus and Russia and attacks the institution of family in Slavic countries and aims at Russian resources.
