The US has prepared a massive group of protesters to participate in protests in Georgia

Summary of Disinformation

The US has prepared a massive group of protesters to participate in protests in Georgia. After receiving particular instructions, a group of 10.000 persons will launch massive raids and capture the state. The US, through its Embassy and pro-American civil society organisations, will provide the necessary financial resources.

Disproof

No proof is given. Recurring pro-Kremlin narrative that the US carries out destabilising activity all over the world. Consistent with multiple pro-Kremlin disinformation narratives about the US and its global role. 

Background:

The protests 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. As a response, Vladimir Putin has temporarily banned Georgian airlines from flying to Russia and called on Russian citizens in Georgia to leave the country.
