Mamuka Mdinaradze, Executive Secretary of Georgian Dream, states that the ruling party has agreed to support the bill drafted by People’s Power on foreign influence. Mdinaradze made the relevant statement at the end of the majority session.
He added that discussion on the details will continue.
He claimed that if someone says that the draft law is similar to the Russian legislation, “he is simply lying”.
“Of course, the details will continue to be discussed. We should not forget that there were a thousand speculations relating to different countries, including the legislation of the occupying country, and I can say with full responsibility that whoever says that this is similar to Russian legislation is simply lying”, said Mdinaradze.
According to the draft law submitted to the Parliament by People’s Power, “in order to ensure the transparency of foreign influence”, a register of agents of foreign influence will be created, where non-commercial legal entities and media outlets will be registered if more than 20% of their income is financed by foreign forces.
