The Verkhovna Rada adopted the law “On ensuring the functioning of the Ukrainian language as a state language”, securing its exclusive rights in comparison with other languages in the country. According to the document, the Ukrainian language is recognised as the only possible application in almost all areas of the country’s life. This is a discriminatory law that implies punitive measures. If it comes into force, it will significantly affect the literacy of the population of Ukraine and greatly impoverish it culturally.
Belarus is a part of the West’s strategy to contain Russia. This strategy aims to create a ‘cordon sanitaire‘ of countries hostile to Russia on its western borders. Belarus is a missing link in the chain of such countries that prevents a ‘buffer zone’ stretching from the Baltics to the Black Sea. Hence a disruption of ally relations between Russia and Belarus is a key Western geopolitical priority.
This is a conspiracy theory and recurring disinformation narrative about Western attempts to force Belarus to sever ties with Russia and about the belligerent West attempting to encircle Russia. See earlier cases alleging that the West has developed 'Great Turan' doctrine and 'Anakonda' plan to encircle Russia with hostile countries. Read here about the concept of big conspiracy.
