Georgian radicals and opposition, who disrupted the session of the Inter-parliamentary Assembly on Orthodoxy in Tbilisi, strangled and poured water on the representative of Estonia, mistaking him for Russian.
The disinformation message appeared in the context of the protests in Georgia.
During a meeting of the members of Inter-parliamentary Assembly on Orthodoxy, Russian State Duma Deputy Sergei Gavrilov sat in the Georgian parliament speaker's seat. When the Georgians began to demand that the representatives of Russia should leave there was confusion about the nationality of Estonian delegates. According to the Estonian parliamentarian who was present at the event, the conflict died out after he explained they were from Estonia. According to the Estonian parliamentarian there was no physical contact or spilling of water, only verbal skirmish.
