Georgia is busy with marijuana and gay pride

Summary of Disinformation

The syndrome of destruction that hit Europe is visible in Georgia. Instead of building planes, as before, this great Christian nation is busy with marijuana and gay pride.

Disproof

Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative about threatened values, which is used to undermine progressive Western attitudes about a variety of normative issues, including the rights of women, ethnic and religious minorities, and LGBT groups, among others.

Georgia is facing a massive disinformation attack after recent protests. The story is also consistent with narratives accusing the Western countries of meddling and attempting to forcibly impose their liberal values on countries with a strong Christian tradition. For similar cases, see here, here, and here.
