Coverage of Belarus Protest on Belarusian and Russian national TV is pure propaganda and full of anti-Western conspiracy theories.

Lukashenka’s disdainful comments about protesters and lies about behavior of his enforcers, who are behaving in a brutal and inhuman manner towards the citizens they are sworn to protect show the true face of the regime. 

The difference between coverage on independent foreign media and the ones that are supporting authoritarian rulers is huge, which really shows the depth of disinformation narratives, emanating from Russia.

This is reflected in how much Kremlin negative messages about Ukraine and Maidan are echoing in Belarusian government-owned TV, as well as messages about alleged Nazis taking over the protest.
