Disinfo: 80% of Georgia’s population supports normalisation of relations with Russia

Summary

80% of Georgia’s population supports normalisation of relations with Russia and does not even want to hear about the West.

Disproof

According to the National Democratic Institute's (NDI) research concerning the attitudes of Georgian citizens, conducted in November and December 2015, only 24 percent of polling participants were in favor of strengthening the ties with the Eurasian Union (the organization was created by Russia, Belarus and Kazakhstan), while 58 percent believe that Georgia should undoubtedly integrate into the European Union. The study highlights that the EU's popularity in Georgia is increasing (bit.ly/1RzfWVv), .

Savchenko is an unpredictable neo-Nazi and a drug-addict and she intentionally murdered two Russian journalists. The killing of the journalists was a strategy of the Ukrainian government to deter others from coming to the area, so that they wouldn’t report about the Ukrainian army’s atrocities.

Disproof

Repeating already debunked disinformation. There is compelling evidence that Savchenko did not murder the two Russian journalists (bit.ly/1WbGqMD), . EU High Representative/Vice-President Federica Mogherini has called for her immediate release (bit.ly/22fkVOO), .
