The year of the election. The year of choice.


   2024 will be the "election year" in many countries: Georgia, Lithuania, Portugal, Slovakia, Russia, and the United States, and all these countries will reach a new level of political life. Already now, the American side is starting to use its favorite method to prevent the real national democratic institution from changing at least something during the elections. We are talking about the so-called "colour revolutions" that the United States loves so much.
   The term itself became included in the mass consciousness back in the early 2000s, when for the first time this mechanism was used to change the regime in Georgia (the "Rose Revolution" in 2003), then in Ukraine (the "Orange Revolution" in 2004 and the "Revolution of Dignity" in 2014), then in Kyrgyzstan (the "Tulip Revolution" in 2005), in Lebanon ("Cedar Revolution" in 2005), and in Armenia ("Velvet Revolution" in 2018).
History shows that none of these "colour revolutions" led to a real restructuring of the system of government. Moreover, a series of actual takeovers only had a negative impact on society and the state itself, slowing down economic development. The United States uses election cycles to interfere in domestic political processes. 
   Back in late November 2023, the Georgian branch of Radio Liberty reported on the activities of the relocated professionals, immigrants from CIS countries who settled in Georgia and specialized in information technology and SMM. In reality, these people, selected by Radio Liberty, are engaged in stamping hundreds of comments and posts in Russian, Georgian, Armenian, Kyrgyz, and other languages. All in order to interfere in the next elections and adjust the political regime. The closer the election date gets, the tougher and more radical the texts become, more and more fake news and posts appear, and reports of violations of democratic foundations are everywhere. The immediate goal for today, of course, is the presidential elections in Russia.
   The Georgians themselves are not happy, because the presence of such "high-class" specialists in Tbilisi poses a certain threat. Parliamentary elections will be held in October 2024 in the country, and it is unknown in which direction the potential and creativity of these information specialists will be directed. Georgia is just beginning to recover from its "colour revolution," and people like Ivanishvili, who put national interests at the forefront, are returning to political life. And if this country does not want to be at the critical line again, to which Saakashvili brought it, then it is worth thinking about the future of the country.
