“In a historical process for our country, the Georgian government is forced to fight against a planned and well-coordinated disinformation campaign,” said Parliament Speaker Shalva Papuashvili, addressing the European Conference of Presidents of Parliament (ECPP) in Dublin.
According to the Speaker, Georgia made significant progress on its democratic development path, which is confirmed by the outlooks of international organizations.
“However, unfortunately, the difference between Georgia’s impressive democratic achievements and the formation of wrong perceptions about the country abroad is often obvious.
In this historic process for our country, the Georgian government constantly has to cope with a planned and well-coordinated disinformation campaign. I hope we will all learn how to navigate the disinformation tsunami, will not become victims of false perceptions, and will use fact-based narratives.
It will strengthen democracy, ensure that people’s will is enforced, and democracy will be sustainable and protected despite internal and external threats,” Shalva Papuashvili stated.
