Georgia Colour Revolution – another US financed Power Grab via 12.800 NGO’s ? – South Front – VIDEO –

Another Maidan revolution organized by the West, which has already destroyed Ukrainian statehood and led to a full-scale war in Europe, is gaining momentum in Georgia. The ongoing protests in Tbilisi have already shown their real goals, which are far from those officially declared by their leaders from the Georgian opposition.

So far, the protesters have stated their unwillingness to know who is being paid from abroad and who is pursuing foreign interests in their country, declaring that they prefer “European ideals” and chimerical Western freedom of speech. t

More recently, the real political goals behind the ongoing protests have begun to emerge. Starting with riots against a bill aimed at identifying foreign agents in the country, the protesters have already turned to geopolitical issues.

Unfortunately, inspired by the puppet opposition, which cares only about its own prosperity and the benefits offered by Western elites, and blinded by the illusory prospect of joining the prosperous “Western garden”, the protesters who are now bravely storming the Georgian parliament clearly do not understand that the only way to get into the “garden” is to sacrifice their own lives for the sake of NATO’s interests in a new war with Russia.

The years of war have already claimed the lives of thousands of Ukrainians, but the Kiev regime was still not welcome in the European Union, let alone its membership in NATO. The revolution in Georgia follows the same bloody scenario.

It all started on March 7, when the Georgian Parliament approved a bill on foreign agents aimed at publicizing the work of public figures and organizations who are paid from abroad. Initially, the ruling Georgian Dream party and the Power of the People movement offered two options.

The first, the so-called Georgian option assumes that non-profit legal entities and the media will receive the status of foreign agents if more than 20% of their income comes from abroad. Such organizations must undergo mandatory registration; if they refuse to do so, they will be fined, and the Ministry of Justice will have the right to launch an investigation against them.

The second “American” version of the bill is based on the Law on Registration of Foreign Agents, adopted in the United States in 1938. It reaches not only the mass media and non-governmental organizations, but also other legal entities and individuals. Its violations are fraught with not only administrative, but also criminal punishment.

The second version was submitted to parliament after the opposition criticized the first bill, saying that it was based on Russian law. The second bill is aimed at showing how much tougher the American version is.

On March 7, the Georgian parliament approved a softer “Georgian” version, which the opposition called a “Russian” or “Kremlin” law, despite the fact that it was an exclusively Georgian interpretation of the law in force in dozens of countries; and the patron of the “liberal West”, Washington, was a pioneer in this area, adopting such a tough law in the late 1930s.

The Prime Minister of Georgia explained that “until now, no one has considered the possibility of condemning the law on foreign agents in force in the United States. Similar laws apply in other countries. And the Georgian authorities are doing everything to strengthen Georgia’s sovereignty.”

For example, the Asian Development Bank, in a review of the state of the civil sector in Georgia published in 2020, indicated that there is no special legislation on non-profit or non-governmental organizations in the country, but they are registered in the general register of companies, and as of 2019, there were 12.8 thousand non-profit organizations in this list. At the same time, the absolute majority of such organizations rely on foreign funding.

Non-governmental organizations and their members played a decisive role not only in the “Rose Revolution” of 2003, when Mikhail Saakashvili came to power, but also in 2012, when the current ruling Georgian Dream won the elections, the bank’s research notes.

However, accusing the Prime Minister of allegedly adopting a “Russian law”, using populist statements and the image of a “cruel authoritarian Russia” created in the West, the Georgian opposition and foreign powers mobilized thousands of citizens to protest.

The US Embassy in Tbilisi called March 7 a “black day for Georgian democracy,” saying that the new laws were inspired by the Kremlin, despite the fact that the toughest of them is practically a translation of the law in force in the United States. Washington has already threatened Georgia with sanctions for the fact that the Georgian parliament adopted its own analogue of the American law.

Georgian President Salome Zurabishvili, who is often accused of acting on the orders of America, symbolically made a speech from New York, declaring her support for the protests and condemning the law, which allegedly will bring Georgia “closer to the vicious model of Russia, not Europe.”

The President of the country called the crowd, blinded by the specter of European integration, protesting against the right of people to know who is being paid for lying in their country, “a symbol for which Georgia has always fought.”

In his turn, the President of Ukraine Zelensky did not stand aside and wished Georgia the same “victory” that war-torn Ukraine had after the Maidan revolution in 2014. The protests in Tbilisi have a certain “pro-Ukrainian” bias. Oppositionists wave Ukrainian flags, chanting the Ukrainian anthem. This is extremely ridiculous, given that not only foreign agents are banned in Ukraine, but the opposition in the country has been completely “exterminated”.

During the riots on March 7 and 8, during which “peaceful” protesters armed with EU, Ukrainian and US flags threw firecrackers, stones and Molotov cocktails at security forces, set fire to and overturned cars of the Ministry of Internal Affairs, and damaged the Parliament building, a total of 133 violators of order were detained. Police used tear gas and water cannons to disperse the crowd. Dozens of employees of the Ministry of Internal Affairs were injured.

The Ministry of Internal Affairs of Georgia noted that the protesters went beyond the norms of expression of freedom of speech and peaceful assembly and caused damage to the parliament building. The protesters damaged the protective structures around the parliament building, broke several windows and threw pyrotechnics into the room. According to the Ministry, the police made attempts to expel the aggressive participants of the rally from the territory around the parliament building, but they did not obey and began throwing Molotov cocktails, stones, sticks and other objects at law enforcement officers.

After two days of fighting, the parliament took a step back and followed the demands of the crowd. According to the official statement, the document caused controversy in society. According to the rulling party, the bill was presented in a false light, as a result of which part of the population was “misled.”

“Its adoption at the first hearing was presented as the fact that the country turned away from the European course… As a ruling force responsible to every member of society, we decided, of course, without any persuasion to withdraw the bill that we supported,” the party said.

As a result:

  • The Speaker of the Georgian Parliament has withdrawn the bill on foreign agents from the Venice Commission, the ruling party of Georgia has reported.
  • All participants of the protest actions at the parliament in Tbilisi on March 7 and 8, who were detained for administrative offenses, have been released, the Ministry of Internal Affairs of Georgia reported.

However, immediately after all the demands of the protesters were met, the opposition issued another ultimatum and continued the protests. The protesters do not stop the rally, and now demand the resignation of the government of the country, as well as the holding of new parliamentary elections.

Moreover, the crowd chants “Sukhumi” and demands that the authorities “resolve the issue” with Abkhazia, which the Georgians still consider their territory.

Quod erat demonstrandum. The bill on foreign agents in Georgia has become nothing more than a pretext for an attempt to attract part of the population to mass actions of disobedience to the authorities, which refused to sacrifice their population for the sake of NATO interests and open another front against Russia.

In general, the current Government of Georgia pursues a pro-Western foreign policy. However, they refuse to support the Kiev regime and try their best to avoid any military conflict with Russia. LINK

Attempts to make another organized coup and bring more loyal puppets to power will only lead to another bloodshed in Georgia, but not to integration into Western organizations such as the EU or NATO.

Washington already attempted another revolution a year ago, when, together with their partners in Kiev, they launched an operation to return Saakashvili to Georgia, but then the coup failed.

Today, the US-led opposition is seeking the overthrow of the legitimate government in Georgia. They are inspired by the personal benefits offered in the case of Russia’s defeat in its fight against NATO after a new wave of hostilities breaks out on its southern borders. LINK

The West is not interested in strengthening the sovereignty of a country in which its influence is so great. The law on Foreign Agents would reveal and tighten the work of numerous organizations and public figures funded by the West.

Moreover, it would not allow any authorities to pursue an independent foreign policy contrary to their interests.
