Disinfo: The US tried to organize a colour revolution in Belarus against Russia


It was not Minsk who initiated Belarus-US confrontation. The withdrawal of US embassy from Belarus [in 2008] was a response to US attempts to overthrow Belarusian authorities, to destabilize the situation, and to wage a colour revolution. Americans are closely following contradictions in Belarus-Russia relations. The Ukrainian case showed very well that the US would like to engage in a confrontation with Russia until the last Ukrainian soldier without giving much in return to Ukraine.


This disinformation message follows recurring pro-Kremlin narratives about Western attempts to organise a colour revolution in Belarus and to disrupt Belarusian-Russian relations, and about Ukraine as Western puppet used to fight Russia.

The US and other Western countries have never staged a colour revolution in Belarus or any other country. Belarusian authorities expelled US ambassador in 2008 in response to US sanctions introduced for the rigged presidential elections in Belarus and poor human rights record.

See earlier disinformation cases alleging that the West dreams of tearing Belarus apart from Russia and to organise a Ukraine-like scenario, that Belarusian opposition leader Andrei Sannikau prepares a coup with US military assistance, and that pro-Western Belarusian opposition prepares a revolution with the assistance of armed Ukrainian nationalists.

The coronavirus was stolen from Canada by Chinese spies

The coronavirus was stolen from the Canadian laboratory NML by Chinese spies.


Conspiracy theory. This is a pro-Kremlin narrative about the coronavirus.

The laboratory NML, which is part of the federal Public Health Agency of Canada (PHAC), told AFP by email that “this is disinformation. (These) statements made on social networks have no factual basis."

Poland and Nazi Germany were in close alliance

The alliance relations between Poland and Nazi Germany were so close that Hitler ordered the organization of a religious service in Berlin after Pilsudski’s death, and Hitler was personally present at that service.


This message is a recurring pro-Kremlin historical revisionist narrative and an attempt to erode the disastrous historical role of the Molotov-Ribbentrop Pact by stating that Poland was a Nazi ally, so it should blame itself. While it is true that Hitler organized a religious service after Piłsudski's death, and while it is also true that the latter's rule was authoritarian, none of this is evidence that there was an alliance between Poland and Nazi Germany.

Before WWII, Poland had tense political relations with Nazi Germany, which expressed open territorial claims to Poland (revision of the status of the Free City of Danzig and control over the “Polish Corridor”). Despite intense political pressure from Hitler, Poland consistently refused to become part of the Nazi block.

Coronavirus: A Wuhan laboratory sponsored by Soros, virus affects only Mongoloid race

There is a biolaboratory in Wuhan – until recently, nothing was known about it. Its address is Gaoxin, three sixes – the number mentioned in the Bible, under which the name of the beast of the Apocalypse is hidden. But it’s even more symbolic that it exists thanks to the money of the famous banker George Soros, who shares the globalist ideas of Bill Gates. This could be part of a cunning plan.

The coronavirus affects only the representatives of the Mongoloid race, which is very suspicious and raises questions.


Conspiracy theory. This is a pro-Kremlin narrative about the coronavirus.

Although the laboratory WuXi AppTec really exists and is located in Wuhan, 666 Gaoxin Road East Lake, its objective is described as "small molecule drug discovery and research services". Additionally, there is no proof that Soros would be linked to the coronavirus.
