Disinfo: Poland is directly involved in the operation aimed at the regime change in Belarus


Barbed wire and fences [on the Polish-Belarusian border] are not a political success but a failure. Just a few years ago, we had an opposite tendency - visa-free travel introduced by Belarus and cooperation in the sphere of railway transit of Chinese goods. Unfortunately, the current situation is mainly a result of the actions of the Polish authorities, whose position is detrimental for international contacts with the neighbours - this position comes from both their own conviction and the American instigation.

Poland is also directly involved in the regime change operation developed outside Belarus. The best proof for this claim is the Polish statements denying the legitimacy of Lukashenka’s rule and the recognition of Tsikhanouskaya as legitimate power. This situation is completely unbelievable, taking into consideration the Polish historical experiences of the XX century.


Recurring disinformation narrative from pro-Kremlin outlets about the migration situation on the EU-Belarus borders and the alleged Polish “aggressive” actions against Belarus.

The pro-Kremlin media regularly accuse Poland of a hostile position on Belarus and direct attempts to destabilise this country or organise a coloured revolution there. In fact, Poland continues to support the civil society and people in Belarus.

There is plenty of evidence that the Belarusian authorities have instigated the ongoing irregular migration flows to the EU borders via Belarus.

The president of the European Commission Ursula von der Leyen said that situation on the EU-Belarusian border is not a bilateral issue of Poland, Latvia, Lithuania and Belarus but a hybrid attack against the whole EU. The vice-president of the European Commission and high representative of the European Union for foreign affairs and security policy (HRVP) Josep Borrell stressed that responsibility for the migration crisis falls on the Lukashenka regime.

Disinfo: Europe uses the situation with migrants to create a provocation against Lukashenka

What is happening now on the border between Belarus and Poland is not a Polish provocation against Belarus and its president, it is an American provocation.

Europe is not satisfied with blaming President Lukashenka for the migrant crisis, which is a Western provocation against the people of Belarus. It is trying to denigrate President Putin because of this situation as well.

Unfortunately, Europe is more busy blaming Belarus than solving this problem. It does not matter [for Europe] how many migrants die of starvation or cold. The main thing [for Europe] is to use all this effectively against President Lukashenka.


Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative about the ongoing migration situation on the eastern border of the European Union with Belarus.

There is plenty of evidence that the Belarusian authorities have instigated the ongoing migration crisis in Lithuania, Poland and Latvia. Lukashenka's regime is using migrants from the Middle East as "political and hybrid" tools against Lithuania and the entire EU.

Disinfo: Sputnik V is more effective against “Omicron” than Pfizer

Vaccines developed based on the adenovirus vector platform, including Sputnik V, show higher efficacy against the new COVID-19 strain (Omicron) than mRNA vaccines such as Pfizer/BioNTech.


A misleading claim that aims to discredit the efficacy of vaccines against COVID-19 produced by Western pharmaceutical companies.

Although it is true that the mRNA vaccines may not be as efficient against the Omicron variant as they have been against previous variants like Delta, this does not make the Sputnik V vaccine more efficient. The World Health Organisation (WHO) is working with technical partners to understand the potential impact of this variant on current vaccines, in a time where vaccines remain critical to reducing severe disease and death.

Disinfo: There is no religious persecution in Russia

It should be reiterated that there is no religious persecution in Russia. None of the inmates currently serving time in Russia could even remotely be described as "prisoners of conscience."


Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative concerning the human rights situation in Russia.

Articles 19, 28, and 29 of the Russian Constitution explicitly state that Russian citizens shall be afforded the freedom of religion and that any "agitation instigating [...] religious hatred and strife shall not be allowed."
