Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narratives about the protests in Belarus and Western attempts to disrupt Belarusian-Russian relations.
There is no evidence that Poland, the Baltic states, nor any other Western governments are involved in organising and funding the protests in Belarus, nor that they are conducting any activities aimed at destabilising Belarus. The protests in Belarus erupted to contest the results of the presidential elections that took place on 9 August, which are considered fraudulent by a large part of Belarusian society.
The legitimacy of the state leaders come from fair elections and not the international community. The elections in Belarus cannot be called fair, even pro-Kremlin analysts admit massive frauds, hence the political crisis. For the lack of observance of democratic standards, the EU did not recognise the results of this election, and the subsequent repression against peaceful protesters led to the targeted sanctions.
The EU calls on Belarusian political leadership to initiate a genuine and inclusive dialogue with broader society to avoid further violence, regardless of Lukashenko's relations with Russia.
