The EU is pressing every way to change the regime in Belarus, and does not even hide this in public discussions. This has for long been known and understood.
There are very specific people behind provocations in Belarus, those who have been attempting to encircle Russia with enemies in the last years. […] In Belarus, they wanted to act according to the Ukraine scenario, though this time Western elites feared to openly make a coup. Nobody was sent to the country to distribute cookies, and it wasn’t possible to force youngsters to organise a tent camp in one of the squares. This signals that in the coming days, the protest wave in Belarus will fail. The opposition and the enemies of Lukashenko abroad won’t agree with the election results for some time, but this won’t change anything. The West failed in its coup in Belarus.
Recurrent pro-Kremlin narratives as part of an ongoing disinformation campaign on the events in Belarus, portraying every popular protest in the world as a Western-backed colour revolution and as an attempt to encircle Russia. No evidence is provided to support the claim.
See other examples of pro-Kremlin disinformation narratives in Belarus, such as claims that the EU reaction to Lukashenko’s victory is an example of Western double standards; that the same lack of democracy and repression is present in EU countries which criticize Minsk; that the arrest of Russian mercenaries in Belarus was a Ukrainian provocation, and the Ukrainian secret services may have planned terrorist attacks in Belarusian territory; that the West wants to prepare another Maidan in the country; or that Belarusians, Ukrainians and Russians are one single nation.
