Perverted Europeans will organise sodomy in Minsk during the European Games 

Summary of Disinformation

The European Games will shortly be held in Belarus. For this reason, a representative from the Ministry of Interior came to a parent-teacher conference in Minsk and advised parents to take special care of their teenagers during the event. Although he did not say it out loud, the meaning was the following: Perverted Europeans will arrive from Europe where LGBT, marijuana, and prostitution are legalised and paedophilia is thriving, so better keep your children away from the sodomy that the foreigners will organise in Minsk. Belarusians are keeping their kids away from the high numbers of perverted European tourists as if they had the plague.

Disproof

This message is outright speculation and conspiracy consistent with recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narratives about the moral decay of Europe, the propaganda of the morally corrupt West, and its aggressive actions towards Belarus and Belarusian society.

The 2nd European Games 2019 will be held in Minsk, Belarus from 21 June to 30 June 2019. The number of foreign tourists is estimated to be at least twice as less compared to the Ice Hockey World Championship hosted by Minsk in 2014 (30,000 vs 70,000 tourists). Then, no extraordinary crimes or aggravations of criminal situations were reported by the Ministry of Interior as being committed by foreign tourists.
