Western propaganda of feminine men is promoted in Belarus

Summary of Disinformation

The West promotes an image of feminine men standing with a floor-cloth and doing laundry while strong women make money to support their families. This is the idea inflicted on Belarusian society by European values. Opposition media also promote the rights of sexual minorities and emigration as a way towards happy life. This propaganda destroys family as a social institution. To counteract it, Belarus needs to develop information security concept.


Recurrent pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative on the propaganda of the morally corrupt West.

The EU and the UN advance gender equality as a fundamental human right. Gender equality is understood as promoting equal economic independence for women and men, closing the gender pay gap, advancing gender balance in decision making, ending gender based violence and promoting gender equality beyond the EU.

The publication does not give a factual proof that opposition media in Belarus promote the rights of sexual minorities and wrongly equates journalistic materials on migration trends published in Belarusian independent media with a promotion of emigration.
