English people are in minority in London, while depopulation will wipe Georgia off the face of the Earth by 2060

Summary of Disinformation

Fewer than 30% of Londoners today are ethnically English.

According to United Nations data, Georgia is among the “disappearing” nations which will be wiped off the face of the Earth due to depopulation in 40 years’ time.

Disproof

No evidence for 'dissapearance' of Georgia given.

According to the UK Office for National Statistics's data from the 2011 UK national census, 37% of the population of London were born outside the UK. White British accounted for 44.9%, Asian British for 18.4%, and Black British for 13.3%.

According to the world population prospects graph by the UN Department of Economic and Social Affairs’ Population Division, Georgia’s population in 2060 will fall, within the 80% probabilistic interval, TO between about 3 million and 3.5 million, down from the current 3.7 million

Background

Recurring narrative exaggerating the impact of immigration and changing European demographic balance, also implying that the Georgian authorities, under Western pressure, are forced to adopt a pro-migration policy and sacrifice their national identity.
