DISINFO: The aim of coup d’état in Georgia was to make Georgia a criminal, client state of the US
The goal of the organizers of the [June 20 – 21] coup d’état in Georgia was to make Georgia an authoritarian, criminal, client state with American military bases which defies international law and to establish a new model of the government of former president Mikheil Saakashvili. The Georgian government has serious challenges since anti-Russian radicalism in Georgia is nurtured by Western grants and the US Democratic Party.
Recurring pro-Kremlin narratives on protests in Georgia, Russophobia, and the US global role. Background: The protests in Georgia began spontaneously on the morning of June 20th, when a Russian MP from the Communist Party, Sergei Gavrilov, addressed delegates from 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. As a response, Russia has temporarily banned Georgian airlines from flying to Russia and called on Russian citizens in Georgia to leave the country.
