DISINFO: Large-scale Western information campaign against the Union State between Belarus and Russia
The West justifies its military policy by imagined necessity to contain allegedly aggressive Russian intentions. Against this backdrop, a large-scale information campaign is being conducted to discredit the role of the Union State in regional security and to tear apart brotherly relations of the two countries.
The message is consistent with recurring pro-Kremlin narratives about Western aggressiveness towards Belarus and Russia and West's attempts to disrupt Belarus-Russia relations. See earlier disinformation cases alleging that the West is targeting the Union State between Belarus and Russia, that the Belarusian opposition, civic activists and independent journalists make kill lists for Western security bodies, that the West attempts to drain Russian resources and wants to harm Russia-Belarus relations, and that the West's only interest in Belarus is to make it anti-Russian.
