Foreign Media Expelled From Belarus As Propaganda Against Lukashenko Ramps Up

Protests continued in Belarus, with tens of thousands of people taking to the streets each day. August 30th is expected to be a big event, and together with it appears that international journalists’ credentials were revoked in the country.

the Belarusian Association of Journalists said at least 17 journalists were stripped of their accreditation, which are issued by the foreign ministry. Among them were a video journalist and a photographer from Reuters news agency, two from the BBC and four from Radio Liberty.

There is even a video purportedly showing a Radio Libery (a US-state funded media) being apprehended by an unidentified man dressed in black.

The Associated Press news agency also said two Moscow-based journalists who were covering the recent demonstrations in Belarus were deported to Russia on Saturday. Also, the AP’s Belarusian journalists were told by the government that their press credentials had been revoked.

Opposition leader Svetlana Tikhanovskaya, who escaped to Lithuania, said she was worried about the government targeting the media.

“The only way it will attempt to cling onto power is by fear and intimidation,” she said.

Several Western embassies in Minsk issued a statement against President Alexander Lukashenko’s government and in support of the opposition.

“We condemn the disproportionate use of force and urge the Belarusian authorities to stop the violence and the threats to use military force against the country’s own citizens and release immediately and unconditionally all those unlawfully detained,” the missions of the United States, the United Kingdom, Switzerland and the European Union said in the joint statement.

“Intimidation and prosecution based on political grounds need to stop. We call on the Belarusian authorities to respect the country’s international obligations on fundamental democratic and human rights.”

Meanwhile, Senior Prosecutor of the International Legal Department of the General Prosecutor’s Office, Counselor of Justice Vitaly Volskiy resigned in protest against the actions of the authorities.

He is one of many individuals leaving government service in presumed support of the opposition.

The opposition media network is reporting on the “unstable mental condition” of the usurper – in wording and claims very similar to what was said regarding Venezuelan President Nicholas Maduro starting from February 2019. The long coup attempt there, however, appears to have entirely failed.

The Belarusian one is still only beginning. And it uses all the common accusations found in MSM, such as the mythical Wagner contractors and more.

“Friends, this week has shown even better the unstable mental state of the usurper. Throughout May, June and July he frightened us with Russia, looked for the Kremlin’s trail in any candidate, smashed Belgazprombank and detained the Wagner PMC fighters.

After August 9th, the psychopath began to threaten to bring Russian troops here. He blamed the Czech Republic and Ukraine for all mortal sins, and military army helicopters shot down balloons on the border with Lithuania. The United States has replaced the Kremlin as the main threat.

At the moment, the madman thought of transferring troops to the western borders and accusing Poland of trying to seize the Grodno region.

It even came to a violation of the religious peace, threats to Christians, detentions near churches and churches.

We believe that such actions of the state treason can lead to sad consequences. The Belarusian people must go out and show that they stand for peace and friendship with all their neighbors. And also will not allow the invaders to destroy the sovereignty of our country.”

Western standards…
Few trolls post comments on U.S. media…hurr durr WWIII…
CIA/soros/state funded media meddles 24/7 pushing for civil war in a foreign country…best thing since the invention of wonder bread…
Always blame the other side with your own crimes.
CIA protocol 101…

Lone Ranger

BBC …MI6 front
Radio Liberty…CIA front

Zionism = EVIL

BBC is lately worse than Fox news, it is totally CIA and Zionist mouthpiece and spreads total lies. Most countries have blocked it and the “British Councils” which are MI6 stations for recruitment of locals.

Lone Ranger

I can confirm,BBC is blocked in Hungary.
We still have EuroNews and CNN tho…

Volker

EuroNews is the Fake-News/Propaganda Outfit of the EU-Junta.

Lone Ranger

Indeed.

Cromwell

I found out many years ago that ANYONE who works at the BBC has been vetted by MI5,thats all we need to know.

Zionism = EVIL

Iran, China, Cuba, North Korea, Venezuela and even Algeria where they spread malicious Wahhabi propaganda of FIS.

Wizzy

Not lately. BBC has been the worst propaganda media outlet since the beginning of civilization

Zionism = EVIL

True, now the cunts just make up total Zionist crap without an ounce of truth. In the Kuwait war, the liars made up the story of Iraqis killing babies in incubators which in fact their Americunt masters were doing and the Zionist parasites are doing today in Gaza.

FlorianGeyer

The worst and most amateur as well :)

Zionism = EVIL

About time as I had suggested, and it is important to expel all the other CIA cunts NGO and “businessmen”, “students” and “tourists” as well. This was totally NATO cunts desperate attempt and even the posters were printed before the elections.

China should ban all Apple products ASAP.
As a payback for Huawei.

Cheryl Brandon

That would be great

Volker

Huawei makes better products anyway.

Zionism = EVIL

Exactly.

Zionism = EVIL

Apple is overpriced junk anyway. South Korea and Chinese Android are far superior.

Volker

AP AFP Reuters direct conduit to western Deep-States + Regimes. German ARD ZDF DW are also effected and they are owned + controlled by the German Regime and they are totaly infiltrated + infected by corrupt Transatlantic shills + lackeys.

Sauron

Lukas seems to be counting his days. Numbered they arecomment image

Lux et Veritas

Algorithms and laws of probabilities would not concur.

Sauron

all planned and thought of. no probability no chances. full on result.

Lux et Veritas

Another CIA failed color revolution bites the dust.

Cheryl Brandon

INDEED

It is also gratifying to see that Mr. Putin is learning that in realpolitik against US bullies and thugs, being passive in not an option. How would the US act if Russia or China started a color coded revolution in Canada or California? Russian largely passive attitude post USSR let US and its NATO vassals into a state of arrogance and hubris, which is finally turning them into failed states. NATO is a complete mess and US is burning, not a very good role model to follow.

d'Artagnan

It is gratifying to see Putin finally draw a line against the encroaching US mischief-making in Russia’s front yard. US is a dying dinosaur and needs to be confronted on multiple fronts.

Cheryl Brandon

good, cause all their doing is doing the work of HUMAN FUEL MATERIAL. CAUSING FIRES.

Cromwell

Now throw those NGOs OUT and close all those Nato Embassies.

Volker

They are [fake/phony]NGOs anyway.

Cromwell

We saw this shit in Serbia,there was a group called Otpor and another later called CANVAS,just like the group we now see in Belarus,check out the logo both use its very much alike,that is so its easily recognizable for the herd,the founder of Otpor had links with western intelligence,its as plain as day whats going on,they should crush those bastards.

Volker

They are ALL funded groomed by the same corrupt outfits such as NED USAID EED Open-Society western Deep-States NATO-Mafia Atlantic-Council corrupt Elites/Oligarchs MICs financial Mafia-Cartels ect ect like in HK Ukraine Georgia Thailand Latin America ect….literally all over the World on behest of the Evil Empire and their accomplices.

Cromwell

Yes why do they even allow the into the Country?i remember that idiot yanucovich in Ukraine allowing insane McCain who is now in hell and Nuland to fly in like they owned the Country and turn up on Maidan to incite the Nazis to violence,it almost cost him his life,what he should have done is put tanks on the street and if half the army had gone with the nazis that would have been the nest time to fight the war that unfolded in Donbass and Lugansk.

carlo cozzarin

Even if 950,000 people take to the streets, they cannot overthrow democracy where 90% think differently
This Ms. Guaidó alter ego took only 10% of the votes
Dissidents can always emigrate like I did when Berluscotti and the mafia won the elections for the second time

Wizzy

An opposition leader who wears over-sized dresses and speaks English to purportedly address Belarusians? Nobody speaks English in Belarus.

Sauron

Lukas should join his pal for a cup of tea:)))

James Adams

Bullshit. The dictator is scared, otherwise he would let journalists in. He’s a coward

Cromwell

They are not journalists,they are Reich prostitutes.

FlorianGeyer

Those in the media who take their orders from Western Intelligence deserve to be arrested as they are in fact combatants that propagate Western propaganda.
