Putin's talks with Lukashenka have caused a hysterical reaction of the West

Summary of Disinformation

The West was engaged in fierce information war before the meeting of Putin and Lukashenko. The West is involved in this war because it opposes unification of Belarus and Russia  – which is one of the most important geopolitical issues and will determine the fate of the world. It would mean another step towards restoration of borders of Great Russia (USSR).

Disproof

No evidence given.

There was no hysteria in the West regarding the Putin - Lukashenka meeting, the West was not engaged in information war.

Mainstream Western media gave little coverage to the meeting. For example, the article devoted to the negotiations on Radio Liberty/Radio Free Europe only pointed out that the Belarusian leader skipped the 15-17 February Munich Security Conference.  British daily Telegraph described the various sports activities Lukashenko and Putin exercised in addition to their talks. After the meeting  the AFP quoted the "Moscow Times" which claimed that Belarus is ready to merge with Russia.
