The West is using information warfare to destroy cultural and worldview spheres of life in Russia and Belarus. It is the war for consciousness. The purpose is to re-format the consciousness of the people of Russia and Belarus according to the matrix from Washington and Brussels.
CIS countries are experiencing a wave of Russophobia. Inter-ethnic tensions sometimes take on catastrophic proportions, leading to clashes, pogroms, and large-scale war. The sphere of inter-ethnic relations is the most convenient method for destabilising a society. The image of a great anti-Russian pogrom in Central Asia is emerging.
The West is conducting a hybrid war aimed at undermining Russia's role and influence in Eurasia by promoting the escalation of inter-ethnic tensions and Russophobia.
This scenario has already taken place in Ukraine, the Baltic states, and Moldova.
This article repeats a narrative, increasingly spread by pro-Kremlin outlets, claiming that the West is waging a hybrid war against Russia. This narrative fits into the broader disinformation theme about the West’s allegedly belligerent and hostile agenda against Russia, and about its alleged plans to destabilise and encircle Russia.
The article’s message is also consistent with the recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative about Russophobia, as well as the narrative claiming that the West promotes violent colour revolutions to bring about regime change in post-Soviet countries and around the world.
There is no factual evidence to support the article’s claim that the West is conducting a hybrid war to undermine Russian influence in post-Soviet states by stoking inter-ethnic conflicts (including pogroms and ethnic wars) and “Russophobia”.
As has been pointed out by analysts, the term “Russophobia” is a Kremlin propaganda tool that identifies alleged enemies of Russia and actors who are responsible for intolerance and persecution of ethnic Russians. Pro-Kremlin propagandists often claim that Russophobia is the equivalent of anti-Semitism. The “fight against Russophobia” has been used to strengthen the internal stability of the Russian authoritarian regime, to implement various foreign policy objectives, as well as to discredit NATO and EU enlargement.
