The West is trying to engineer popular opinion in Belarus towards a “color revolution,” fairly obviously. But they are on a sticky wicket. Western Ukraine was genuinely enthusiastic to move towards the west and the EU, in the hope of attaining a consumer lifestyle. Outside of central Minsk, there is very little such sentiment in Belarus. Most important of all, Belarus means “White Russia,” and the White Russians very strongly identify themselves as culturally Russian.
One day before Pompeo’s visit to Poland, Prime Minister Morawiecki announced a five-point plan of increased Polish interference in the domestic affairs of Belarus. After Pompeo’s visit, Belarusian opposition member Valery Tsepkala stated that soon, he would have a secret meeting in Warsaw with a high-ranking representative of Washington. It means that the capital of Poland will become a contact point between the US intelligence, American state civil servants and the anti-system opposition from Belarus.
This is a classic pro-Kremlin narrative about Western attempts to organise a colour revolution in Belarus and to disrupt Belarusian-Russian relations. It accuses Poland of a plan to intervene in the domestic affairs of Belarus, which is a severe violation of the principles of diplomacy and international relations.
On August 14, Polish Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki presented the so-called “Solidarity Plan”, which is aimed at supporting Belarusian society, which faces harsh repressions from the side of the Belarusian authorities. This Plan has five components – support for people facing political repressions; a scholarship programme; better access to the Polish labour market; support to independent media; support to Belarusian NGOs. These steps have no connection to the alleged “active interference in the domestic affairs of Belarus”. Poland respects the principles of international law and does not intervene in the domestic affairs of any country.
Belarusian politicians which had to flee the country have to meet with foreign representatives abroad because of the current wave of political repressions in Belarus.
