DISINFO: Georgia will become a military protectorate of the United States


Georgia intends to join the NATO, after which it will become a military protectorate of the United States.


Georgia becoming a protectorate of the US after joining NATO is one of the recurring and occasionally contradictory disinformation narratives about the same topic. Disinformation outlets state that The West is forcing Georgia to accept the independence of Abkhazia and South Ossetia in order "to drag Georgia to NATO". See also "Georgia to give up its territorial integrity in order to join NATO" or obligation of holding gay prides and other "preconditions" for Georgia to join NATO. On the other hand, we can read "NATO troops participation in Georgian military pushes Putin to set up military bases on occupied parts of Georgia".

See also "Russia will never allow Ukraine or Georgia to join NATO".

Georgia's movement to join NATO was intensified after the de-facto occupation of a part of its territory.
