While Western pharmaceutical corporations are still working on a drug against coronavirus, the European Union does not rule out the purchase of a vaccine developed by Russian scientists “Sputnik V”. The race for the vaccine has been another failed test of Western solidarity. On both sides of the Atlantic, governments are making multimillion-dollar orders for a drug that pharmaceutical corporations have not yet created. Opposition against Sputnik V has political roots and is grounded in the fact that West did not yet create its own vaccine.
The actions of the protesters in Belarus are controlled by foreign centers, they also finance opposition activists, provide them with information support.
Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative about Belarus protests and, in general, about protests in post-communist countries, presenting them as being organised and controlled from abroad. Neither in the text nor elsewhere there is no any evidence that the West or other foreign forces are involved in any way in the protests in Belarus. Large-scale protests began in Minsk on August 9 against the results of the presidential election, and then in other cities. People revolted against what they call election fraud but also against the aggressiveness of the police, who arrested and ill-treated hundreds of rally participants. The European Council condemned, on 19 August 2020, the violence against peaceful protesters and announced that it would soon adopt a list of sanctions for those responsible for violence in Belarus. ”As the elections in Belarus were neither free nor fair, and did not meet international standards, the EU does not recognize the results presented by the Belarus authorities”, is mentioned in a European Council press release. Se here similar case, claiming that the West is preparing a ”colorful revolution” in Belarus and here a case about ”western curators” of ”Belarussian maidan”.
