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.

US embassy demands Ukraine adopts a law introducing censorship

The new media law, which the US Embassy is demanding to adopt, is designed to finally introduce censorship in Ukraine. One must understand that democracy is the opinion of licensed democrats, and they do not tolerate dissent.

Disproof

Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative on Ukraine mixed with a narrative that Ukraine is under external control from the US, NATO, the EU, or IMF.

The US does not demand to adopt the new media law. The US embassy in Ukraine supported the new media law as a progressive one. Moreover, the US is ready to cooperate with Ukraine in countering disinformation and developing the capabilities of public broadcasting in Ukraine.

Belarus protests are moving according to the “colour revolution textbook” 

The organisers of the protests [in Belarus] have already passed several stages described in “the guidelines textbook for colour revolutions”.

Disproof

Recurrent pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative framing popular protests as Western-backed 'colour revolutions', part of a campaign to portray massive mobilisations in Belarus as a destabilisation effort orchestrated from abroad. No evidence is provided to support the allegations.

On the contrary, tens of thousands of protesters opposing long-time President Alexander Lukashenko are still protesting and have marched through the capital despite threats of force from authorities to open fire.

“Colour revolution” attempts to change Belarus government

The “colour revolution” in Belarus had several goals, among them disrupting the integration of the Union state with Russia, and sabotaging the federal state’s relations between Moscow and Minsk.

Recently, with political and financial support from the West, an attempt has been made to change the government in the Republic of Belarus.

The United States is providing technical assistance to the “colour revolutions” by inflaming tensions and undermining the domestic political situation in some countries.
