Disinfo: There was no Russian occupation in Georgia


A host of TV Obiektivi, Valeri Kvaratskhelia, denied the occupation of Georgia by Russia: “When you are asked a question about occupation, why do not you answer straightly that there has been no such thing as occupation? There is not even a hint of occupation.” “If we recognize that Abkhazia and Ossetia are occupied by Russia, then the remaining part of Georgia is occupied by Americans. They are everywhere. They rule Georgia”, said Kvaratskhelia.


Recurring pro-Kremlin narrative about Georgia being allegedly occupied by the US. Georgia is a sovereign country. Many international organizations condemned the occupation of Abkhazia and South Ossetia, see e.g. the OSCE statements here and here and European Parliament's declaration.
