The US-led West’s Golden Billion wants a tangibly anti-Russian return on their investment, which can only be fulfilled through “regime tweaking” (coercing political changes from the incumbents) or regime change that results in Georgia joining the sanctions and eventually opening another front in the US’ proxy war on Russia, not withdrawing a piece of US-inspired national security legislation.
The ruling Georgian Dream party announced on Thursday that it’s withdrawing its US-inspired foreign agents bill after two nights of regime change riots were organized on that pretext, but instead of de-escalating the latest crisis, it’ll only embolden the Western-backed “opposition” to double down. One group already declared that they won’t stop until everyone who was arrested during this week’s riots is released while another implied that it’ll continue agitating indefinitely.
“Georgia Is Targeted For Regime Change Over Its Refusal To Open A ‘Second Front’ Against Russia”, and seeing as how neither that nor its full compliance with the West’s sanctions regime has occurred, there’s no reason to expect that the latest political development will end this escalating pressure campaign. To the contrary, it might very well exacerbate it if the foreign orchestrators sense that this move is a sign of weakness suggesting that a successful regime change is just a few more riots away.
CNN already made a major contribution to the Golden Billion’s information warfare campaign against Georgia through the publication of its piece on Wednesday titled “Caught between the West and Russia, could Georgia be the next Ukraine?” It serves the purpose of seeding the “EuroMaidan” scenario of speciously “democracy”-driven urban terrorism into everyone’s minds in that targeted country and abroad, all with the intent of accelerating events in that Hybrid War direction.
Remembering that the latest unrest was premised on punishing the Prime Minister for his pragmatic approach towards the NATO-Russian proxy war and the US-inspired foreign agents bill was just the pretext for this, then the West’s pressure campaign likely won’t end until some victory is achieved. Everything was timed not just to coincide with Kiev’s latest setbacks around Artyomovsk/“Bakhmut”, but also with the coordinated destabilization of Transnistria to open up two more fronts at once.
Russia warned late last month that Kiev was plotting an impending false-flag distraction there, and on Thursday – the same day that the ruling Georgian party withdrew its foreign agents bill – it was reported that the local security services thwarted an assassination attempt against the region’s leader. Quite clearly, the Western plan is to stir up problems along both fronts to relieve pressure upon Kiev around Artyomovsk/“Bakhmut”, tempt Russia to “overextend itself”, and ultimately score a strategic victory.
Furthermore, Zelensky’s public support for the Georgian Color Revolutionaries’ last two attempts to storm parliament shows that he’s trying to connect their causes – Kiev’s anti-Russian military one and those rioters’ anti-Russian political one – in the minds of his country’s Western supporters. This is intended to give this latest replication of “EuroMaidan” the “normative” boost required to keep fueling regime change unrest in that South Caucasus country.
Considering these factors, it’s highly unlikely that the West will unilaterally end its pressure campaign against Georgia after the latter’s ruling party withdrew their US-inspired foreign agents bill. This de facto New Cold War bloc wants a tangibly anti-Russian return on their investment, which can only be fulfilled through “regime tweaking” (coercing political changes from the incumbents) or regime change that results in Georgia joining the sanctions and eventually opening another front in the US’ proxy war on Russia.
