No elections were scheduled in the Donbas for the first round of the Ukrainian presidential vote of the 31st of March 2019.
Without the Union State of Russia and Belarus, the statehoods of the two countries would be inadequate and flawed, burdened by geopolitical catastrophes and disintegration. A genuine Belarusian statehood needs measures of deeper integration with Russia such as a common currency, a Union State citizenship, a fully-fledged Union parliament and other state bodies as well as a Constitution of the Union State. Those who promote the development of the Union State between Russia and Belarus are advocates for genuine Belarus’ independence.
This disinformation message is consistent with a pro-Kremlin narrative about deficient and flawed Belarus' statehood and disastrous events without a deeper integration with Russia. This narrative goes in hand with another disinformation narrative about Western attempts to organise a colour revolution in Belarus and to disrupt its relations with Russia.
