Georgia advertises Russian film

The website of the High Council of Justice of Georgia has posted the advertising of the Russian film "August the Eighth", which refers to the five-day war between Georgia and South Ossetia in 2008. Advertising posters of the movie "August the Eighth" could be seen on the main page (they have been appearing instead of the latest news) for a few minutes, after which they have been deleted by the website's administration.


Later the website did not respond to requests, but now its work is fully restored. Most likely, the advertising of the film "August the Eighth" appeared on the website after a hacker's attack on it. The premiere of the films took place a few days ago, on February 21.

Recall, in mid-February, the initiative group of Azerbaijani users of Facebook expressed protest against the film "August the Eighth". Members of this group have appealed with a statement to the administration of the cinema theater "Park Cinema", where the film was to be demonstrated, demanding the prohibition of this film due to the parallels drawn between Georgia, which considers South Ossetia its own territory, Russia - "the occupier", and Azerbaijan, occupying a similar position in relation to the Nagorno-Karabakh and Armenia.

However, the film was shown in Azerbaijan.
