Disinfo: 100 000 North Africans will be resettled in Georgia

Summary

The Georgian Government will resettle 100 000 North Africans in exchange for 500 Million Euros. The European Commission will allocate 500 million Euros to those countries that would receive 50 000 migrants from North Africa. The Government of Georgia expresses readiness to receive not 50, but 100 000 migrants.

Disproof

The Ministry of Internally Displaced Persons from the Occupied Territories, Accommodation and Refugees of Georgia labels the information about the Government of Georgia receiving 100 000 migrants as absurd.
