New motives have emerged in the propaganda of the regime of Belarusian dictator Alexander Lukashenko - signals about Minsk's "openness" to dialogue with the future government of Poland. Stanisław Żaryn, the government's commissioner for the security of Poland's information space, wrote about this on Twitter.
According to Żaryn, Minsk has been pretending that it has not tried to harm Poland since the summer of 2021 with a hybrid operation to destabilize the Polish-Belarusian border, which is still ongoing.
He noted that this operation is constantly accompanied by repetitions of accusations against Poland of allegedly committing "genocide" against "refugees" who managed or tried to cross the border.
Such motives in Belarus' propaganda appeared because Lukashenko is trying to use the situation in Poland after the elections to soften the Polish government's position on Minsk's hostile actions, Zharyn believes.
He emphasized that at the same time, Russia and Belarus continue to launch propaganda strikes to undermine mutual trust between Poles and Ukrainians. This is how Russian propaganda covers the protests of Polish carriers on the border with Ukraine.
