EU considers restoring the visa regime with Georgia: persons leaving to the EU have to get a preliminary permit

Summary

The visa free regime between EU and Georgia is a failure – Europe is restoring the EU visa regime with Georgia.

Disproof

The permit that is being presented as a reinstatement of the visa regime between Georgia and the EU is in fact the introduction of draft “European Travel Information and Authorization System”, according to which citizens of countries which have signed a visa liberalization agreement with the EU shall receive a relevant preliminary permission before entering the EU territory. This draft was proposed in 2016 and is aimed at consolidating EU security. Moreover, this new regulation will refer to more than 50 countries apart from Georgia, including the US, Australia, New Zealand, Israel, etc. Hence, it cannot be referred to as a failure in the visa free regime with Georgia.

Propaganda of homosexuality is the main direction in the EU countries in Georgia

The purpose of this so called anti-homophobia propaganda is in fact propaganda of homosexuality, which is aimed at promoting homosexual relations in the society, especially among adolescents. It is a threat to Georgia and national values.

Disproof

Recurring disinformation that cooperation with the West is destroying Georgian society. The EU cooperation with Georgia encompasses many things, but propaganda directed at youth to "make" them homosexual are not among them eeas.europa.eu/delegations/georgia/23634/eu-georgia-relations-factsheet_en, .

Sweden legalizes child marriages for immigrants

Sweden has legalized child marriages for immigrant pedophiles who wish to stay married to their underaged wives.

Disproof

In Sweden it is illegal to get married before the age of 18. However, the current law was written before the issue of child marriages that has happened before the concerned child comes to Sweden, therefore the Swedish Government has given the Justice of the Supreme Court Mari Heidenborg the task of reviewing how protection against child marriage, forced marriage and ‘honour’ crimes can be strengthened. According to the Swedish Minister of Justice, "forced marriage and child marriage must be combated. Children who have entered into marriage abroad must feel that society is on their side." The part of the remit concerning the recognition of child marriages contracted abroad is to be presented in an interim report by 6 December 2017. www.government.se/press-releases/2017/03/stronger-protection-against-child-marriage-forced-marriage-and-honour-crimes/,
