Latest U.S. and Polish activities, including speeches of American experts at Minsk conference and an information campaign of subordinated Belarusian media, indicate that they aim at provoking strict Russian countermeasures and pushing it to the conflict with Belarus. Under the pretext of taking part in a dialogue, Americans conduct information operations, targeting the Union State of Belarus and Russia. Americans need to bring as much distrust and discord in Russia-Belarus relations as possible and to do their best in inflaming the situation in Belarus on the eve of the 2020 presidential election. NATO military exercises Defender 2020 means that the large assault force is created in Poland and Lithuania, aimed at Belarus and Russia’s western regions.
The West’s aim is to bring discord in Russian-Belarusian relations, to pull out the countries’ resources on countermeasures instead of taking care of economic development and integration. Although Russia’s collapse would not benefit the U.S., it aims at preventing Russia’s development and distracting its attention towards external problems. The game around Belarus played by Americans is an attempt to provoke distrust and conflicts in Russia-Belarus relations.
This is conspiracy which is consistent with recurring pro-Kremlin narratives about Western aggressiveness and anti-Russian activities and West's attempts to disrupt Belarus-Russia relations. See earlier disinformation messages alleging that the West is targeting the Union State between Belarus and Russia and attacks the institution of family in Slavic countries and aims at Russian resources.
