Disinfo: The Georgian government clearly understands that anti-Western sentiments are increasing

Summary

The Georgian government clearly understands that anti-Western sentiments are increasing with geometric progression among Georgian people. People start believing that contemporary Europe is not Georgia’s choice, we are culturally and mentally very different.

Disproof

No evidence to prove that support to Georgia’s Euro-Atlantic integration is declining or that anti-Western sentiments are gaining momentum in Georgia. On the contrary, according to opinion polls, the number of supporters of Georgia’s integration into NATO and the EU has increased in 2016 comparing to the previous years: bit.ly/2hlMPru,
