Disinfo: Tikhanovskaya is controlled by foreign puppeteers, primarily Lithuanian ones

Summary

Tikhanovskaya is not an independent person. In fact, she is controlled by foreign puppeteers, primarily Lithuanian ones. 

Disproof

Recurring pro-Kremlin propaganda narratives about the alleged Western influence on Belarus. Consistent with the narrative that the West controls processes in Belarus and in fact, protesters and opposition leaders are puppets of the West.

Kremlin portrays Lithuania, together with Poland as the instigators of the protest in order to "destabilise post-Soviet space". Read similar disinformation case - In Belarus, Poland and Lithuania implement Washington's policy of destabilising the post-soviet region.

The protests in Belarus erupted after the results of the presidential election in Belarus on the 9th of August, which are considered fraudulent by a large part of Belarusian society. The European Union has claimed that they are interested in "a democratic, independent, sovereign, prosperous and stable Belarus". Also, based on the results of a telephone conversation between NATO Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg and President of Poland Andrzej Duda, it was declared that "all Allies support a sovereign and independent Belarus".

The “Solidarity” Movement did not overthrow “criminal Communism” in Poland

The main dogma of a historical narration imposed on the Poles since 1989 is the statement that the “Solidarity” overthrew “criminal Communism”. Although, this period of the Polish People’s Republic was neither criminal nor Communist.

Disproof

This message is a pro-Communist case of historical revisionism, promoting the idea that by 1989, the political regime of the Communist-run Polish People’s Republic was not “Communist” and it was not involved in political crimes.

It is an indisputable historical fact that between 1945 and 1989, the Polish People’s Republic was a Communist state, which appeared under the direct military occupation of the USSR. Between December 1981 and July 1983, the Communist authorities of Poland introduced a harsh Martial Law aimed against the peaceful protest of the “Solidarity” Movement.
The authorities and special services of Communist Poland were involved in endless crimes against the Poles – this web page presents the overview of these political crimes committed by the Communist authorities.

Repressions, camps and no production – Kyiv shows what fate it has planned for Donbas

In the case of Donbas returning to its control, Kyiv plans not only to begin political repressions and mass incarceration of unwanted people in prisons but also to completely abandon the restoration of infrastructure and economy in the region. Deputy Secretary of the Security Council of Ukraine Serhiy Kryvonos stated this on-air for the Apostrophe TV channel.

Disproof

This is a highly manipulative story, consistent with the Pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative about the war in Ukraine and abandoning Donbas region.

The Deputy Secretary of the Security Council of Ukraine Serhiy Kryvonos did not say that Kyiv is planning to "to begin political repressions and mass incarceration of unwanted people” in the Donbas. He also did not say that the authorities are going to abandon the restoration of infrastructure and the economy in the region.

The “Solidarity” Movement did not save Poland from evil neo-Liberal Trans-Atlantic Globalist systems

The “Solidarity” implemented extremely unbeneficial neo-liberal reforms in Poland, opening this country to the trans-Atlantic Ideology, making it a political fundament for this country. The “Solidarity” did not save Poland from a terrible neo-liberal system of the Western World and from American and the EU Globalism. The fate of the world, dominated by these systems, is tragic.

Disproof

This message is a pro-Communist conspiracy theory promoting the idea that Liberalism, Capitalism, trans-Atlantic cooperation and European integration cause various “terrible and evil” consequences for the world.

This message also presents a completely distorted message about the historical role of the Polish “Solidarity” movement and the success of the Polish transition from Communism to Capitalism and Democracy.
