The colour revolution attempt in Belarus, which had western financial and political backing, aimed to prevent its integration with Russia.
Poland and Lithuania are sponsoring strikes in Belarusian factories. Belarusian president Aliaksandr Lukashenka denounced that the workers calling to strike in Belarusian factories are paid by those two countries. It is essential that Lukashenka resists, because if Belarus falls, all Russian western borders will be NATO-ised. Opposition leader Svetlana Tsikhanouskaya is practically an agent of Poland, the EU and Washington.
Recurrent pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative about popular protests against electoral fraud in Belarus, attempting to deny them any legitimacy to the opposition-led strikes by framing them as orchestrated from abroad and portraying their leaders as puppets of the West. No evidence is provided to support any of the claims.
Contrary to the claim about colour revolutions, protests in Belarus erupted to contest the results of the presidential election in Belarus on the 9th of August, which were not monitored by independent experts, and are largely considered fraudulent by both international observers and a large part of the Belarusian society.
See other examples in our database, such as claims that Angela Merkel is the handler of Belarusian opposition leader Svetlana Tsikhanousakya; that the EU reaction to Lukashenko’s victory is an example of Western double standards; that the same lack of democracy and repression is present in EU countries that criticize them in Minsk; that the protests in Belarus are part of a “fire belt” to encircle Russia; that the Ukrainian secret services may have planned terrorist attacks in Belarusian territory; that the West wants to prepare another Maidan in the country, and is introducing extremists in the protests; or that Belarusians, Ukrainians and Russians are one single nation.
