The US threatened Georgia with sanctions due to UN vote

Summary of Disinformation

The UN General Assembly vote on recognizing Jerusalem as the capital of Israel led to that, as Georgian representation did not participate in the vote, the Americans have introduced a legal bill on imposing sanctions on Georgia, formulated by the congressmen of the US.

Disproof

In fact,  a press-release published on Steve Russell’s official webpage on December 6 notes that the International Anti-Corruption Legal Bill is a response to the violation of contracts with the American companies and the US’ allies by the Government of Georgia russell.house.gov/media-center/press-releases/rep-russell-introduces-international-anti-corruption-bill.
