Georgia is an example of the consequences of Western geopolitical engineering

Summary of Disinformation

Western curators are ready to turn a blind eye to rioting by ultra-nationalists and Russophobes in Georgia; breaking off all ties of Georgian people with our country [Russia] and rewriting our common history.

Conspiracy theory, based on a recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narratives casting civil uprisings as externally-funded "colour revolutions" or geopolitically engineered, also seen in cases about Georgia, Ukraine, Belarus, Venezuela.

The disinformation message is also consistent with pro-Kremlin disinformation narratives about the US and its global role and imperialistic ambitions, as well as Russophobia, and  Western attempts to sever relations between Russia and Georgia.

The current protests in Georgia were a spontaneous public reaction calling for the resignation of key national officials after Russian State Duma Deputy Sergei Gavrilov sat in the Georgian parliamentary speaker's seat while addressing a council of lawmakers from predominantly Orthodox Christian countries - the Interparliamentary Assembly on Orthodoxy (IAO). Gavrilov is known for his support to Russia's aggression in Georgia's Abkhazia and South Ossetia regions.

Russia continues its military presence in both Abkhazia and South Ossetia  in violation of international law and commitments undertaken by Russia under the 12 August 2008 agreement, mediated by the European Union.
