Without pressure and influence from outside, the protests would never have happened in Belarus. The internal situation was difficult and brought about by external forces. Without pressure and influence from outside, this would have never happened in Belarus. Belarusians have survived many things. But in the past the pressure was minimal. And this time Western countries fell on Belarus head over heels. But the Belarusians are smart enough to get this thing under control. Belarus’ Western partners have been “too active” and have gone too far with this country.
Western structures are deliberately creating instability focus in the post-Soviet spaces, forming a “fire belt” around Russia. Everything points to the fact that Ukraine was not enough for the West and it took over Belarus and Kyrgyzstan, where massive protests are taking place.
Conspiracy theory framing Russia as the ultimate target of international events, based on several recurrent pro-Kremlin disinformation narratives about Russia being encircled and about colour revolutions, framing popular protests in Belarus and Kyrgyzstan as Western-backed destabilisation attempts. There is no evidence backing any of the claims. See other examples in our database, such as claims that the escalation in the Caucasus is directed against Russia, because someone wants to divert Moscow’s attention from Belarus and Syria; that the conflict in Nagorno-Karabakh is a cover-up operation, as was the 1956 Hungarian Revolution; that Ukraine is sending weapons and nationalist fighters to this war theatre; that the US embassy in Armenia is a mini-Pentagon escalating tension in the region and the Middle East; or that the US is encircling Russia with biological labs for a future attack and is ready to carry out a false flag operation in Alaska to blame Russia.
