A rally of violent, pro-Russian party Alt-Info is ongoing in front of the parliament building. Participants took down the EU flag from in front of the legislative body and burned it. They hung the Georgian flag instead.
In January 2022, a law entered into force in Georgia, which stipulates punishment for insulting the official symbol of the European Union, NATO or another international organization erected/exhibited by a public institution.
Police presence is said to be mild at present.
