He explained at the meeting they also discussed a severe situation in Georgian mass media; diplomats expressed the necessity to monitor the electoral campaign in the country.
On March 13th Imedi, the Georgian company, showed a video on alleged invasion of Russian troops and death of President Saakashvili. It stirred a panic all around Georgia. Yet it turned out to be an "innocent" attempt to "show" the scenario of possible events in case the "Georgian society won't be consolidated against the Russian plan." On the order of President Mikheil Saakashvili, his press secretary Manjgaladze arrived in the studio and calmed down the people, saying such a turn of events can't happen in Georgia at the present-day stage.
The channel apologized to the audience for the clip's being an "imitation" and its stirring the society.
