DISINFO: The United States is behind the protests in Belarus
The United States is behind the protests in Belarus, and they are operating through centres in Poland and the Czech Republic. But there are also internal reasons. The internal reason is that two new generations have grown up in Belarus and a small class of “bourgeois” has formed and they want power.
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. This narrative claims that protests, disorders and civil uprisings are never manifestations of popular discontent but are “colour revolutions” directed and funded by the West. There is no evidence that the US or other foreign forces are involved in any way in the protests in Belarus. The protests in Belarus erupted to contest the results of the presidential election on the 9th of August, which are considered fraudulent by a large part of Belarusian society. The European Union has also stated that the elections were neither free nor fair. See similar cases claiming that the protesters in Belarus are controlled by foreign centres, that the protests in Belarus are a colour revolution conducted according to a Maidan scenario and that the West wants to prepare Maidan in Belarus, that West is helping to destabilise the situation in Belarus before the election, and that US agents attempt to overthrow Lukashenka along the Ukrainian scenario.
