DISINFO: The Union State of Belarus and Russia saves post-Soviet countries from pro-fascist West


Following the USSR’s break-up, the West created various funds and organisations in the post-Soviet countries and began meddling in the internal affairs of sovereign countries. The 2004 presidential elections and 2014 Euromaidan in Ukraine were examples of US’ rulings on who should have power in Ukraine. Gradually, post-Soviet countries began turning into colonies of the US with various conflicts and degradation stemming from this fact. When it comes to eastern policy, old and new EU and NATO countries have clear roles: Western European countries play masters of democracy, human rights, and European values, whereas Eastern European counties (Poland, Czechia, Romania, and the Baltic states) do dirty work by promoting disintegration, bringing tensions and confrontation along the whole perimeter of all-Russian civilisation. In fact, the real policies of the EU and US do not have anything to do with democracy and human rights. They support neo-fascists in the Baltic countries, fascists in Ukraine, followers of Ion Antonescu in Moldova, the anti-Russian regime in Georgia, so-called human rights defenders in Russia and so-called promoters of Belarusian culture in Belarus. Integration between Belarus and Russia reproduces the USSR to some extent and counteracts the geopolitical dictate of the US. This is the reason behind the information war waged by Western media and their clients in post-Soviet countries against the Union State between Belarus and Russia. There is no alternative to integration between Belarus and Russia. Without unification, the two countries and other post-Soviet republics will not have futures.


This article is a mix of conspiracies consistent with a number of recurring pro-Kremlin propagandistic narratives about US-staged Ukrainian events, Western colonial policies in post-Soviet space and elsewhere, pro-fascist West, Baltic states and Ukraine, Western aggressiveness towards Belarus and Russia, and the West's attempts to disrupt Belarus-Russia relations. It also puts forward a false dilemma about the direction of Belarus's and other post-Soviet countries' political development (union with Russia vs. no future) and promotes the concept of all-Russian civilisation, an imperial Russian and Russian irredentist ideology that is a favoured pro-Kremlin narrative aimed at weakening the national identity of Belarusians and Ukrainians, as well as their sovereignty. The accusation of Nazism/fascism in relation to Ukraine, the Baltic states, and the West is one of the favourite techniques of pro-Kremlin outlets, read our past analysis Nazi east, Nazi west, Nazi over the cuckoo's nest. The US did not stage the Ukrainian events in 2004 or 2014. When it comes to Euromaidan, the spontaneous onset of protests was a reaction by numerous segments of the Ukrainian population to former President Yanukovych’s violent dispersal of peaceful student protests against Yanukovych's sudden decision to withdraw from the Association Agreement with the European Union in November 2013. See the full debunk here. See earlier disinformation cases alleging that by staging Euromaidan, the West meant Ukraine to die, that the West is targeting the Union State between Belarus and Russia and wages large-scale information campaign against it, that the West favours and supports Ukrainian fascists and Islamic terrorists, and that Belarus faces either normal development under Russia or a forced Polonization and economic devastation.
