Protests in Georgia were pre-planned, Ukrainians were paid to participate in them

Summary of Disinformation

All signs clearly show that the protests in Georgia were pre-organized. Ukrainian sites are reporting of Ukrainians who have been paid and arrived in advance in order to participate in these protests. There was a demand for it, as the adventure with Tomos [the separation of Ukrainian Orthodox Church] failed.





Conspiracy theory with no evidence. Consistent with recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative about colour revolutions.

The protests in Georgia started spontaneously during the morning of June 20th 2019 when a Russian MP from the Communist Party, Sergei Gavrilov, took the Georgian Parliament Speaker's seat during an annual meeting of the Inter-parliamentary Assembly on Orthodoxy (IAO).

The opposition boycotted the presence of the Russian delegation in Tbilisi which then grew to the protests in front of the Parliament.
