Summary of Disinformation

US and European allies have invaded / occupied Ukraine, as there are 10,000 NATO soldiers in Ukraine. They want to do the same with Belarus, that’s why the West instigates protests here.

Disproof

Both US and the EU respect both Ukraine's and Belarus's territorial integrity and sovereignty. Repeating a conspiracy that every protest that goes against Kremlin interest has to be orchestrated by the West - no evidence given. The NATO engagement on Ukraine does not entail 10,000 soldiers, actually it does not entail any combat soldiers at all. In response to the Russia-Ukraine conflict, NATO has reinforced its support for capability development and capacity building in Ukraine. read more about what NATO does in Ukraine here bit.ly/1ftrOFh.
