Georgia’s Anti-Russian Hysteria Delivered Blow To Its Own Economy (Infographics)

Donate

Opposition protests have been ongoing in the Georgian capital of Tbilisi since June 21, when a hard-core pro-Western opposition and supporters of former Georgian President Mikhail Saakashvili [he started and lost a war in South Ossetia in 2008] used a visit by Russian lawmakers to the country as a pretext to start riots.

While mainstream meaid outlets prefer to describe the ongoing events as some kind of ‘anti-oligarch’ protests, in fact, they are a common struggle for power between oligarchic/elite clans within the country. At the same time, both the government and opposition use a harsh anti-Russian rhetoric. The opposition describes the government as a kind of Russian puppets and demands “Putin” to withdraw from Georgia. Ironically, the government says that the riots are being used by Russia to destabilize the government.

Threats against Russia and its citizen, including at least one documented attack on Russian journalists, as well as a series of anti-Russian steps by local businesses did not come unanswered. The Russian government imposed a temporary ban on passenger flights with Georgia from July 8th. The presidential decree also ordered to provide assistance for the return of Russian citizens currently in Georgia and recommended tour agencies not to send Russian clients to Georgia.

Georgian politicans and ‘civic activists’ were surprised by Moscow’s move. They have become used to see almost no official response to their Russophobic actions. Now, the Georgian media is full of reports blaiming the “Russian agressor” [that should “withdraw” according to the very same persons] for not allowing its citizens to spend money in Georgia.

The tourism and visits of various kinds wer 7.6% of Georgia’s GDP in 2018. The biggest tourist flow is from Russia.

        • occupybacon

          I don’t think they can.

          • Daniel Miller

            Oh they do infact. But the georgians seem to be almost as stupid as western Ukrainians and did not expect Russia to respond.

          • occupybacon

            Lel can they go in the US or Canada, in vacation?

          • Daniel Miller

            You mean on vacation? Yes yes they can.

          • occupybacon

            Hahaha, if they could get in tomorrow 144 million Russians would ask for political asylum in front of White House, kissing Uncle Sam with red eyes since they spent the night learning the anthem.

          • Daniel Miller

            I am sorry but Russians are not Ukrainians they dont move out of their nation in the millisons.

          • occupybacon

            LOL there are over 3 million Russians in the United States alone

          • Daniel Miller

            i am sorry 4 million??? Did you pull that numbre out of your ass? in 2016 their had been a total of 397,236 Russian born migrants in the US.
            The United States is littearly a migrant nation no shit their are a lot of Russians in the US,following your retard logic ppl form the UK are begging to get in the US since the numbre of forghen born migrants form the UK in the US is 696,896 and form Canada its even more at around 783,206
            Also i love how to dont mention the fact that per capita their is littearly 3 times more Ukrainians moveing to the US then Russians 347,759 to be exact taking into account popilation numbres that realy is ~3.8 times more then Russia…

          • occupybacon

            Don’t break your keypad, eat your pudding and go to sleep.

          • Daniel Miller

            Is that all you have to say? I mean i cant really be that supprised since your baiting is quite bad and your argument are almost as shallow as a Ukrainian ultra nationalists intellect.

          • Mike

            Go to the Donbass you Canuck pussy.

          • occupybacon

            Maybe I will go to visit all the good Russian patriots cemetery Putin left to die there.

          • Daniel Miller

            “Putin left to die their” are you implying Russia has deployed none PMC’s their from their offichial military?

          • occupybacon

            They did but without enough support, the sanctions was enough to make Putin play down the importance of Dumbass peeps

          • Daniel Miller

            ahaaa so what exactly is the proof? I have not seen a single shread of evidane of standard Russian military personale in Donbass i have only seen PMC’s and Russian a few T72B3’s thats it no Russian troops with ratnik not BTR-82A’s no T90A’s no air defenses and no SPG’s. Russia supports them material wise but i have yet to see proof of actual troops. If Russia did invade full force then Ukraine will not exist evryone knows this.

          • Toronto Tonto

            How about the ID cards that were shown , are you that stupid .

          • Daniel Miller

            You mean pass ports? Why the hell wold troops carry international passports? That makes 0 sence and is not part of Russian military practise.

          • occupybacon

            They can’t invade Ukraine full force lol, they would get spanked like never before. Not only by Ukraine but by economic sanctions, by people at home and lastly Russia would disintegrate like USSR after Afghanistan.

          • Daniel Miller

            Are you seriousely saying Ukraine can put up a fight vs Russia? Are you delusional? Russia wold destroy all of Ukraines military infastructure in just a few days if it invaded. If some former conscript PMC’s can humiliate the Ukranian military as they did what can proffesional Russian army troops do? Also economic sanctions? You mean like the ones now? are you even keeping up with current events or are you still stuck in 2014-2015? Russian economic growith is stable along with reserve funds,investments and so on. Also do you really belive that the USSR collapsed cuz of the war in Afghanistan? Ok now you really are delusional.

          • occupybacon

            Are you seriousely saying Ukraine can put up a fight vs Russia? Are you delusional? Russia wold destroy all of Ukraines military infastructure in just a few days if it invaded.

            Yes, I’m dead serious, Chechens had put a good fight in Grozny, tens of thousands of ATGM’s are waiting for Russian tanks in Ukrainian cities.

            If some former conscript PMC’s can humiliate the Ukranian military as they did what can proffesional Russian army troops do?

            That happens because Russians paramilitary forces are hiding in dense populated areas like Donetsk and Lugansk, which Ukraine don’t want to erase from the map.

            Also economic sanctions? You mean like the ones now? are you even keeping up with current events or are you still stuck in 2014-2015? Russian economic growith is stable along with reserve funds,investments and so on.

            I think you are stuck in 2016-2017 when Russian economy made a nice comeback, in 2018 slowed at 1.5% growth with a forecast of 0.5% for 2019. Yes baby, sanctions are working.

            Also do you really belive that the USSR collapsed cuz of the war in Afghanistan? Ok now you really are delusional.

            I said After Afghanistan not “cuz Afghanistan”. Yes, Afghanistan was a turning point for USSR, their economy was already broken, but they needed a punch in the face to see their military is broken too.

            With all these being said, if Russia thought they could take over Ukraine, they had already done it.

          • Daniel Miller

            “Yes, I’m dead serious, Chechens had put a good fight in Grozny, tens of thousands of ATGM’s are waiting for Russian tanks in Ukrainian cities.”
            You mean you are comparing a conflict form over 25 years ago to a modern one? Really? I cant even imagine how desperate you have to be to use that as a good argument…
            But adressing your point I hope you realise that the modern Russian military is not the same as the one form the 1990’s (in witch most tanks did not even have explosive filler in the ERA casings) Also considering that evry singe ATGM model Ukraine has is ether a none upgraded ancient 1st or 2nd gen soviet ATGM and their best and most modern ATGM’s they have ar the RK-3 and Skhif both of witch do not have enoth power to even penetrate a T72B3 let alone anyting more. (Syria has proofen that Kontakt-5 has enoth power to negate the effect of a ATGM’s tandem warhead case in point the failiure of the BGM-71E to pen it)

            “That happens because Russians paramilitary forces are hiding in dense populated areas like Donetsk and Lugansk, which Ukraine don’t want to erase from the map.”
            Soooo you will compleately Ignore all of the battles that the Ukrainian volonteer battalions got their asses kicked then?
            Also you can say the exact same thing about the battle of Grozny m8.

            “I think you are stuck in 2016-2017 when Russian economy made a nice comeback, in 2018 slowed at 1.5% growth with a forecast of 0.5% for 2019. Yes baby, sanctions are working.”
            Ok for real stop you are really staring to look like a idiot the Russian central bank predicted the fall in GDP growth due to cuts in Oil production and the bigger thing artificial growth inhibition (or in lamens turms keeping the GDP from growing to fast in order to retain the low debt to GDP ratio) i mean no new sanctions have been placed on Russia in 2018…so how did it do well in 2017 and 2018 but “bad” in 2019?

            “I said After Afghanistan not “cuz Afghanistan”. Yes, Afghanistan was a turning point for USSR, their economy was already broken, but they needed a punch in the face to see their military is broken too.”

            Ok so not only are you compleatly ignoran of Ukraines military technology and Russia’s tactics
            Not only do you not know a thing about basic economics but you dont even know history ffs.

            The USSR did not collaps due to economic not military means i mean if we look at the kill to death ratio the USSR killed millions of Mujahadeen with very few losses in return (10.000 troops).
            Internal Political unrest broght it down.

            “With all these being said, if Russia thought they could take over Ukraine, they had already done it.” Um no Russia has not intrest in the rest of Ukraine Crimea was the only important part do you really think Russia wants to absorb the poorest contry in Europe? Are you out of your mind? Do you have any idea how mutch money Russia needs to spend on Ukraine if it absorbed it again?

          • occupybacon

            Who said Ukrainians would use Russian ATGM’s, fuck them, they will use modern NATO ATGMs, very easy to use, no brainers. Ukraine is a big country, Russians won’t be able to travel in large column like the did for few tens of Km’s in Georgia.

            Ukrainians got beaten at Debaltseve because of inept leaders who didn’t understood the importance of being permanently mobile in modern war and not concentrating large number of soldiers in the same place. Russian units were very mobile and they knew when to retreat back into populated areas. Exactly like the terrorists that are hiding in Idlib now or in Aleppo in 2016.

            Now, regarding the very modest Russian GDP growth, if their bank predicted a slow despite Putin’s promise to fix it, in 2018 – it doesn’t play it down in any way. It didn’t do well in 2018. It was only 1.5%. It didn’t do very well in 2016-17 either, just better than 2014-15. And regarding that debt small peeps like you keep mentioning, it’s not that bad, it can be erased like Greece’s and some of the ex Communist block countries.

            Search those pictures with people waiting in row in front of the groceries in USSR and talk later about history. They admitted they lost 15.000 soldiers and 300 aircraft in Afghanistan. But the country was already too fragile to sustain this loses. USA lost 55.000 soldiers and 2.500 aircraft in Vietnam and they could go like that forever if there were not the flower power protests – which is a good thing.

            I never said it’s in Russia’s interest to invade Ukraine. I said only that it would torn in an unimaginable nightmare for them and they know it, I think Russia would disintegrated if they tried that.

          • Daniel Miller

            “Who said Ukrainians would use Russian ATGM’s, fuck them, they will use modern NATO ATGMs, very easy to use, no brainers. Ukraine is a big country, Russians won’t be able to travel in large column like the did for few tens of Km’s in Georgia.” You mean like the TOW-2A and Javelin?
            If so then i wold feel even more sorry since the TOW-2A has proofen usseless vs T72B’s equiped with old Kontakt-5 let alone something more up to date and in regards to the javeline its patheticly short range is quite the handicap particularly in open feileds of east and central Ukraine (and lets not even mention the fact that a Javeline has to laze its target in order to lock on to it witch means if a poor Ukrainian javeline crew trys to target any T90 variant its dead meat since it has laser waring recivers)
            Also in regards to size Georgia may have been small but keep in mind it also had “NATO support” and it still edend in Russia beeing at the gates of the capital (and keep in mind back then the Georgian troops had better equipment then the Russian army)

            “Now, regarding the very modest Russian GDP growth, if their bank predicted a slow despite Putin’s promise to fix it, in 2018 – it doesn’t play it down in any way. It didn’t do well in 2018. It was only 1.5%. It didn’t do very well in 2016-17 either, just better than 2014-15.

            erased like Greece’s and some of the ex Communist block countries.”

            The fact you think debt can be “erased” or “not bad” is enoth for me to conclude you know littearly 0 about even basic economics…

            “Search those pictures with people waiting in row in front of the groceries in USSR and talk later about history. They admitted they lost 15.000 soldiers and 300 aircraft in Afghanistan. But the country was already too fragile to sustain this loses. USA lost 55.000 soldiers and 2.500 aircraft in Vietnam and they could go like that forever if there were not the flower power protests – which is a good thing.”

            Like i said it was a internal political conflict witch lead to the economic ressesion.
            Also the US air losses are almost 10.000 fixed wing aircraft alone account for 3744…also the numbre of troops lost is 58.220 while the Soviets lost 14.453.

            ” never said it’s in Russia’s interest to invade Ukraine. I said only that it would torn in an unimaginable nightmare for them and they know it, I think Russia would disintegrated if they tried that.”
            You think that debt is not bad and can be firgiven and also belive that the US only lost 2500 aircraft….so your opinion is about as valide as well i dont even know something with as invalid of a opinion.

            The matter of a fact is Russia can defeat Ukraine without breaking a sweat that is a simple fact you can not deny tha.

          • pappa gone

            in what world you live?
            ammerrecans put billions dollars (printed also with any worth) to mantain “pressure” on Russia. But Russia is ready in whatever moment to a war while ammerrecans when in front of strong armies will defeat very soon. Ukronazi are a failed state by 20 years (for that Usa and Uk and EU try to take the country to exploit resources and enslave the population) installing puppets that make “american interests”.
            one precisation: only you can believe in Vietnam there were 55.000 americans dead, or the number of Korea in 1953 (that was immense!), in Vietnam, Laos, Cambogia amerrecans lost almost 200.000 soldiers, as now in Afghanistan where numbers from several years are not declared (they declared until the number went about 3500, but now I think are almost 10.000, not including germans, brits, italians, and the many other soldiers of many other nationalities) the bloodbath of Afghanistan will emerge and then we will know the real crime they committed (also towards their fellow citizens!!)
            the real measure of the crimes before or after come ever on the surface and in future americans will start to pay for their criminal behavior in the last 75 years (and also before into the two world wars)

            by anywhere I mean any country tourists from Russia forms a 20th of many economies in that world. look at turkey and Russian bans of tomatoes and tourism was enough to get them to come to the table.

          • occupybacon

            Erdogan fucked up with Americans, he thought he can suck multiple dicks the same time, selling tomatoes to Russia won’t bring Lira back in shape

            If only banning Polish apples, French stinky cheese and Italian pasta would bring them to the table

          • Daniel Miller

            It wont but it will keep the Turkish econemy afloat since currency value has nothing to do with how well your econemy is doing case in point Japan.

    Is that a robot holding up the Fuck Russia sign. Not hard to imagine her eating her own newborn.

    As for losing a neat little chunk of their tourist income, they must feel grateful that a lot of those folks will probably go to Crimea. Not to worry the US austerity will fix everything. Cannibalism doesn’t seem to far fetched or prostitution, what else have they got? Oh yeah sending mercenaries to ISIS. Amazing how many Ukrainians have gone to Russia and gotten the program to bestow citizenship, wonder how many are jumping on that bandwagon? Better than dying for ISIS.

    • Daniel Miller

      Georgians are retards,they act like they are the victims even tho they attaked Russia and expected no response.And after they lost 20% of their land they start bitching about it.
      Also considering how poor Georgians are (not even 5000k GDP per capita) i am shure they do need to money.

      • Blue Poison

        Oh shut the fuck up you degenerate full of blind hate. Stop eating the propaganda they give you.

          • Daniel Miller

            You deserve nothing more,you attack Russians you get your asses kicked and then you have the odasety to brich and moan about it like you are the victim.

      • lovethemapples

        They didn’t attack Russia, everything happened within internationally recognized territories of Georgia, hence non of Russia’s business.
        See you judge people based on your perception of values. That also was the reason Russia was humiliated in 1st Chechnya war. People are different and every society has its own set values. I am sure there are plenty of materialistic societies, but you may count Georgians out of it.

        • Daniel Miller

          Are you delusional? they bombed a Russian UN base…the president even addmited to it…And you expect the Russian to just sit their? fuck no they got their asses kicked and they have not right to bitch and cry when you poak a alligarot and it butes your leg off.
          Also the 1st Chechen war was a disaster but that is why the chechens got anahillated in the 2nd one now dident they.
          Gerogrian’s values seem to be to sell out to anyone as long as they are anti Russian that set of values will just turn them into a ven bigger shithole then they already are and they have noone to blame but themselvs.

          • lovethemapples

            Why are you angry? Georgians don’t like Russia, its their business. You don’t like the justification of their hatred, still its their business. Every nation can decide on themselves who to like and who not. Its not like Russia fell out of sky and are special people that everyone should love. It is full of sh,t like the rest of imperialistic countries.
            They did, but still in the territory of Georgia. Whoever was attacked, whoever attacked, doesn’t change that fact.
            And which is why Chechnya as a federal subject is one of the biggest recipients from the federal budget. Its like, “we annihilated you in the war, thats why every year we will pay you a lot of money to keep you happy”. Not only Chechnya, most of the small Caucasian republics are biggest recipients from federal budget. And thats because they are different and live with different set of values, and money is the only way Moscow found to keep them calm under its rule.

          • Daniel Miller

            I will be angry since they can only blame themselvs for their situation their own stupidity made them lose 20% of their nation and keep in mind that is a mercy considering that Russian troop had been at the gates of the capital and culd have easely occupied the whole nation but desided not to.
            Also yes they did infact anahhilate them in the 2nd chechen war.
            And can you link me a source claming they recive the most money from the federal budget? And for any of the republics for that matter?
            Also they saw what cinde of a shithole like Georgia Chechenia turned into after beeing “independant” they know better then to do smth stupid like that.
            But back to the shithole that is Georgia my problem is that they blame evrything all of their problems struve from their own arrogance and stupidety and yet all they do is blame Russia and not themselfs for it.

          • lovethemapples

            It should not be surprising that Russia is not liked in the region considering last 200 years of occupation and purge. No self respecting nation would love such a neighbor.

    Russians maybe only 20% of the
    Tourists, but the days they stay are 4 times the amount other tourists spend in Georgia, so they that brings their share to 50%. Then you have to account for the per capita spending. For Russians is substantially higher.

    Why is Russia hated so passionately by the peoples and nations which are closest to it historically, culturally, religiously etc. It is a paradox. Is there something wrong with all of them or maybe something is wrong with Russia itself? Lately, in its drive to westernize itself, Russia has betrayed many of its allies and friends like Cuba, Serbia, Libya, Armenia, Ukraine, N. Korea etc. and also its own people (we see how it worked out for Russia) and has obviously spent most of its respectability credit since it can’t be trusted any longer, however, the hatred for everything Russian seems to run much, much deeper than that. Why?

    Nice going, Georgia. Definitely not on my mind. You managed to cut your nose at the most damaging time of the year for your economy just as the summer tourist season in the south Caucasus heats up. You guys win the prize for worst loser leaders in the world.

    I have posted this on another article, but, it applies to Georgia, when you look at events in Venezuela and also the Ukraine Oranage Revolution, Part II. Do believe Georgia has forgotten their own Rose Revolution and the wonders of Saakashvili.

    Do like how those in Crimea fought back, with minimal loss of blood.

    Another US funded, regime change script, that they have tried to force:

    CIA Finances Another Group Of Fraudsters: The Venezuelan “Opposition”… https://www.zerohedge.com/news/2019-06-27/cia-finances-another-group-fraudsters-venezuelan-opposition

    Georgia, do you seriously want to be just like Ukraine? Don’t you remember 2008, when you had the Rose Revolution, let alone 2014, when Ukraine went for Round 2 of the Orange Revolution?

    Yesterday, I returned to the Crimea – Putin Documentary, and decided to follow it on the TV, rather than computer. Seriously interesting, together with all the tricks of how the CIA and friends, try to force through regime change and the slaughter of the people.

    You start off with the Korson Massacre, which leaves you speechless, and then events leading up to the election.

    The CIA stooges, who tried to use the Tatars, to cause unrest in Crimea. You should see how the Tatars were treated, when Ukraine was in control and not very nice? However, joining the Tatar protest, were the ‘Far Right Thugs’. Who just happened to use chemical weapons in the crowd. Plus, they were hoping to cause a similar scenario to ‘The Maidan’ in Crimea, but, their weapons, including ampules of chemical weapons, were found, before they had time to carry out their instructions. Guess that is why Ukraine has 13 bio-chemical labs on her territory, complete with full US Diplomatic immunity. Just like the one in Georgia.

    Also, in the film, they showed when Ukraine sent a train, loaded with the ‘Far Right Thugs’, complete with weapons and not friendly greeting to Crimea. Only, the blacksmiths of Crimea, worked overtime to tool up the Crimean, self defences. The train arrived, empty, owing to the cowards, of the Far Right, pulling the emergency chord and rushing to get off the train, knowing there was a welcoming committee, waiting for them.

    You then had the airport scene, again with the self defence forces of Crimea, with nothing more than tool handles, for weapons. They gained access to the airport, when Ukraine were going to fly in some military jets. Well, the jets found out there was a welcoming committee and returned back to base. The SBU then turned up, and ready to shoot the defenders, in ‘firing squad’ formation. When a few trucks arrive. The poor defenders, believing their time was up, only it was the Russians to the rescue, as Russian Forces, gushed out of the trucks. The SBU fled.

    Then the US and NATO sent the Aegis destroyer to Crimea, so full of confidence and US arrogance. Only, it was met by a friendly ‘Bastion’ wishing to say hello. Result, destroyer doing a ‘figure of 8’ in the Black Sea, owing to not liking the way Bastion was eyeing it up. Followed by the ‘wicker baskets’, that Russian sent, on the military jets, which left the sailors of the USS Donald Cook, severely traumatised, followed by mass resignations. Wonder why?

    Not a good look, US Forces taken out by a Russian wicker basket?

    The documentary is well worth watching, to grasp what is happening in Georgia and who are behind it.

    So reminds me of the CIA, fleeing ISIS, when the Russians turned up. Shame, they never learnt a few ‘make up’ tricks.
