Disinfo: The death of Georgia's statehood and Georgians as a nation is a matter of time

Summary

Georgia is a sham country, where at the state level a game of independence of the supposedly European type is being played. It is also accompanied by a fake game of supposed democracy, with the priority of protecting the incomprehensible rights of LGBT people, protecting the rights of everyone except the rights of Georgia and its citizens of sound mind. Accordingly, in this country the law has no force, the law acts selectively, which means that the law does not work in Georgia. In Georgia, the law is not only under someone’s authority, but this “someone” is outside the country, is a foreign force (but not Russia). It turns out that the law does not work for Georgians twofold, and the death of Georgia’s statehood that has not yet taken place is a matter of time. Not only statehood is dying, but also Georgians as a nation. It happens through the recruitment of young people and promoting to them anti-Russian propaganda, which contains many elements that undermine their interest in religion, military affairs, everything traditional and devotion – everything that Plato considered the fundamental basis of raising children.

Disproof

A recurring pro-Kremlin narrative about lost sovereignty, challenging Georgian statehood, nationality and values, as if Georgia is ruled by the West and cooperation with the Western institutions destroys the country's sovereignty.

Media Development Foundation's media monitoring results revealed that the narrative that the West is meddling in sovereign affairs of Georgia and virtually run the country, is one of the main trends of anti-Western propaganda and disinformation in the country.

See similar cases claiming that The US and the EU govern Georgia, that The West does not allow Georgia to conduct direct dialogue with Russia independently, that Georgia is a testing ground for the West, that The West is forcing Georgia to propagate homosexuality, or that Georgia is governed by the US ambassador and the EU.

According to a US plan, Ukraine must become an agrarian state with widespread poverty

The Western countries did not abandon the colonisation policy, only the technologies for seizing new territories changed over time. Ukraine has become just one of those countries in which the United States is testing new techniques. […] according to the US plan, Ukraine should develop along the lines of Latin American, agrarian economies with poor education and widespread poverty.

Disproof

Conspiracy with no evidence given. Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative about Ukraine, which is often claimed to be under external control from the US, NATO, the EU, or IMF.

Ukraine is a sovereign state. The US does not control Ukraine and does not plan to turn Ukraine into a vassal state. Ukraine’s sovereignty and territorial integrity are respected by most of the free world, confirmed by the resolutions of the United Nations, but violated by Russia.

Germany has a serious problem with freedom of speech

No one will disagree that Germany has a serious problem with freedom of speech.

Disproof

Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative claiming that Western societies enjoy little to no freedom of speech and/or press. The German Constitution not only recognizes freedom of the press as a vital component of freedom of expression, but even upholds it as "an independent and separate freedom under article 5 of the Basic Law." Accordingly, Reporters Without Borders ranks Germany as the 11th media-friendliest state globally, noting that the country's "[s]olid constitutional gaurantees and an independent judiciary ensure a favourable environment for journalists." Pro-Kremlin outlets routinely decry the alleged erosion of press freedom in various Western states, while simultaneously claiming that Russian journalists enjoy far greater liberties than their European counterparts. See similar cases concerning The Netherlands, the Baltics, France, the United States, and the United Kingdom.

Sputnik V criticism is pure politics

Criticism of the Russian Coronavirus vaccine Sputnik V is of purely political nature and is not related to either health or medicine.

Disproof

This is part of a pro-Kremlin disinformation campaign on the Russian coronavirus vaccine Sputnik V, which was met with skepticism and criticism, even by Russian specialists.

Reservations about the Russian Sputnik V vaccine are caused by the fact that Russia didn’t complete the large trials which WHO insists that a vaccine must undergo involving thorough testing to examine the vaccine’s safety and efficacy before it is released. Rolling out an inadequately vetted vaccine could endanger the people receiving it.
