Ukrainian ex-president Leonid Kravchuk is looking for new ways to deceive Donbas. One of the key issues of the Minsk agreements, which Ukraine has not fulfilled for years, is the consolidation of the special status of the self-proclaimed Republics in the constitution of Ukraine. Instead, Kravchuk is discussing the organisation of the free economic zone and ideas to involve civil society in the negotiations. There is even a will to personally go to the rebellious Donetsk and Luhansk and speak directly with the local authorities there. However, behind all these ideas, one can clearly see Zelenskyy himself, his opponents, the upcoming elections, a desire to speak a lot, but not to sign anything.
NEXTA is the most popular and currently promoted Telegram channel. The Polish project seems to be controlled by Polish special services. The telegram channel is used to coordinate the actions of the protesters. They indiscriminately put what can be perceived as the truth, and when they realise that it is a lie, they remove it.
NEXTA started as a regular Youtube channel, a musical project of Stepan Putilo, now known as Stepan NEXTA and Stepan Svetlov. He is from Belarus and studied in Poland, and several years before the presidential elections this channel was "about Belarusian realities, information about the life of officials and what they are trying to hide".
The main editor of the channel is Roman Protasevych who like Stepan Putilo is living in Poland as well, where he asked for political asylum.
The channel mainly uses user-generated content - materials that users from all over Belarus send anonymously.
"Telegram is an anonymous platform, a secure transfer of information. NEXTA is thousands of Belarusians who share some information, send it to us and thus tell it to the whole country. They tell stories that should be heard that will never be heard on Belarusian television or in the official Belarusian media," - editor-in-chief Roman Protasevich said about the concept of the project in an interview with Euronews.
There is no evidence whatsoever to suggest that the Polish secret service is in any way involved in running the channel.
