Georgian sniper trio killed demonstrators on Euromaidan, operation was initiated by the former president of Georgia Mikheil Saakashvili

Georgian sniper trio killed demonstrators on Euromaidan. The operation was initiated by the former president of Georgia Mikheil Saakashvili, Italian documentary shows.

Disproof

Gian Micalessin, military correspondent of Italian newspaper Il Giornale, is the author of the documentary. He talks with three Georgian respondents – Koba Nergadze, Zalogi Kvaratskhelia and Alexander Revazishvili, who claim that in February 2014, Mikheil Saakashvili’s military aide, Mamuka Mamulashvili paid them USD 1000 each and brought them to Kiev with fake documents for participation in the Maidan developments. The respondents also claim that upon Mamulashvili’s instructions, they opened fire on peaceful protesters.

According to analytical portal The Insider Russia, the documentary is fake because the stories told by “snipers” contain inaccuracies and manipulations. Koba Nergadze, one of the respondents, says in the film that he was a security officer under Mikheil Saakashvili’s presidency. To prove this, the documentary shows a document in Georgian and English languages containing grammatical errors. The document includes an English wording "Security Service of Defend" that is an incorrect grammatical construction in English. Moreover, the document has a name – Certifikate instead of Certificate.
