According to the Kremlin propagandist, the protests were allegedly needed in order to open a second front with Russia and send troops into Abkhazia.
Russian propagandist Margarita Simonyan is threatening Georgia with a rocket attack because people chanted “Sukhumi” during the protests, the name of the city and capital of the Russian-controlled Abkhazian Autonomous Republic. Simonyan wrote about this in her telegram channel on March 10.
“Protesters in Tbilisi are shouting ‘Sukhumi! Sukhumi!’ Actually, it was initially clear that all this shuher needed exclusively for the opening of the second front for us, ”wrote Simonyan.
According to her, Russia will not invade the territory of Georgia, instead the RF Armed Forces will launch a missile attack on the capital Tbilisi. Allegedly, this is possible due to the fact that there are no Orthodox shrines in the country.
“If August 2008 repeats, no one will fuss with Georgia and will not send troops there, but they will simply shy away right away in Tbilisi, not particularly analyzing it, if only because there is no time for sentimentality now and there is no Kiev-Pechersk in Tbilisi Lavra No one in our country has ever considered and does not consider himself one people with the Georgians, and the Russian Federation has never been “Tbilisi Rus,” the propagandist writes.
Protests in Georgia over the law on “innocent agents”
Recall that since March 7, mass protests have been held in Georgia against the adoption of the law on “innoagents”, which is similar to the Russian one. According to the document, organizations and media that receive more than 20% of their funding from other countries must be marked in a special register. Otherwise, they face fines or imprisonment.
In response to protesters’ demands, Georgia’s ruling party announced that it was withdrawing the sensational law. It is worth noting that Ani Tsitlidze, a deputy of the opposition United National Movement party, said that this statement is not true, since such a procedure is contrary to the rules of parliament.
On March 9, the Georgian Interior Ministry announced that they had released all the protesters detained on March 7 and 8 for administrative violations, but some of those arrested were forced to face trial.
