Georgia lost Abkhazia and South Ossetia because of Saakashvili’s activities

Summary of Disinformation

As a result of Saakashvili’s activities, Georgia lost Abkhazia and South Ossetia.


A recurring pro-Kremlin narrative blaming Georgia and its political leadership for the Russo-Georgian war of 2008 which resulted in the occupation of Abkhazia and South Ossetia by Russia.

Georgia is a sovereign country attacked by Russia in 2008. Many international organizations condemned the occupation of Abkhazia and South Ossetia, see e.g. the CSCE statement here and the European Parliament's declaration.
