belarus continues to actively participate in the information war in support of russia

The belarusian regime is actively using all available media resources to spread propaganda aimed at discrediting Ukraine, justifying Lukashenko’s policies, and supporting russia’s actions.

The CCD studied the information space in belarus and found that the main narratives include manipulations about a supposed military threat from Ukraine, dehumanization of the Ukrainian military and government, and arguments justifying the war against Ukraine. Specifically, the following messages are being spread:

▫️ “Ukraine has aggressive plans against belarus, so helping russia in the war is self-defense.”
▫️ “Kyiv is amassing troops to the border, demonstrating a threat to belarus”;
▫️ “russia in Ukraine is fighting Nazism and protecting the russian-speaking population”;
▫️ “deployment of nuclear weapons in belarus is necessary to deter the West”.

The Center has also identified the most influential actors promoting anti-Ukrainian propaganda in belarus and is preparing a series of posts about their activities.
