The EU criticised the elections and repression in Minsk, but in fact, the EU and its members have the same lack of democracy and repression. In 2005, a Referendum in France rejected the constitutional treaty but two years later the treaty of Lisbon was ratified. France did not respect the will of its citizens. Germany didn’t either since no referendum was even organised. This is a violation of democratic principle and all media are silent about it. Ursula von der Leyen, condemned the repression in Belarus and asked for accuracy in the result of the vote. But there is a landslide victory for Alexander Lukashenko whereas no such legitimacy happened for the regime of Merkel or the EU. Furthermore, in France, the repression was violent against the yellow vests. More recently, in Germany, for the day of Freedom where half a million people demonstrated for their freedom on August 1st. The press said only 20,000 people attended the event and demonstrators were arrested by the police. European, French or German elections are in no circumstances any better than elections in Belarus. Even though, Belarus is not a perfect democracy, the European Union is no better.
Citizens of Russia need to understand that the white-red-white flag is a symbol of the struggle against Russia, the Russian people, a symbol of betrayal and irreconcilable Russophobia. It’s like the red and black flag of Bandera’s followers in Ukraine. […] Very often at Nazi gatherings, the white-red flag hung next to the Nazi flag with a swastika. […]How did he end up in Belarus in 1991? Together with the Nazis, fearing deserved retribution, their Belarusian henchmen fled to the West. Subsequently, they ended up in the United States and Canada, created all kinds of “governments in exile” there, developed their own primitive ideology. Since the collapse of the USSR, with the help of the Soros Foundation and various American structures, these ideas began to be imposed on Belarus. So this flag came to the Belarusian land for the third time.
Disinformation about the white-red-white flag which is used by the protesters in Belarus. Consistent with recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative about Russophobia. The white-red-white flag is a historical symbol, referring to the first Belarusian state in 1918-1919. During World War II it was used by some Belarusian organisations that collaborated with the Nazis, whoever it is misleading to present it as a Nazi symbol. In 1991, when Belarus declared independence the flag became an official symbol, based on the draft law "On the State Flag of the Republic of Belarus" prepared by the Belarusian People’s Front faction in the Supreme Council of Belarus, the main national political force in the country at the end of 1980s and in the beginning of 1990s. The flag was changed in the referendum in 1995, after Alexander Lukashenko came to power. In late 1990s in Belarus it became a symbol of struggle against authoritarianism. Read more here.
