DISINFO: Political establishment in the Baltic states, Poland and Ukraine are driven by Russophobia


Lithuania, Latvia, Poland and Ukraine are ready to compromise their security and sovereignty for the interests of the US and UK, which carry out anti-Russian and anti-Belarusian activities. The political establishment of the Baltic states, Poland and Ukraine does not act based on national interests. Instead, they are driven by Russophobic mythology, dream about great power ambitions which undermine their stability and international security. Against this background, Belarus rightly fosters its participation in Russia-led integration initiatives to strengthen sovereignty and development potential.


Pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative about ubiquitous Russophobia portraying the Baltic states, Poland and Ukraine as puppet-states of the US and UK.

All mentioned countries are sovereign and independent states, which shape their own foreign and domestic policies. They are not controlled by the US, UK or any other foreign government or organisation. As for Ukraine, its sovereignty and territorial integrity are violated by Russia's acts of armed aggression.

The publication puts forward a false dilemma about the direction of Belarus' political development (close union with Russia vs. an unavoidable loss of sovereignty). This false dilemma was repeatedly promoted in earlier disinformation cases here, here, and here.

Read our past analysis about Russophobia in the Baltic states and elsewhere The “Russophobia” Myth: Appealing to the Lowest Feelings and see similar disinformation cases alleging that Russophobia is the main activity of the Latvian state, that the Union State of Belarus and Russia saves post-Soviet countries from pro-fascist West, that Ukraine became a colony of the United States, and that the Russophobic Baltic States are beggars and vassals of the West.
