Ruslan Khashig: what happened on the air of “Rustavi-2” is a characteristic feature and essence of the information policy of many Georgian media
The Chairman of the Union of Journalists of Abkhazia commented on the obscene attack of the Georgian journalist Georgy Gabunia.

Sukhum. July 11. Apsnypress. Ruslan Khashig, Chairman of the Union of Journalists of Abkhazia, at a meeting of the RA UJ Presidium commented on the obscene attack of Georgian journalist Georgy Gabuniy on President of the Russian Federation Vladimir Putin on the air of the Rustavi-2 TV company.
 
 The commentary specifically states:
 
 “The scandal around the Rustavi-2 TV company, obscenities against President Vladimir Putin on the air is not an accidental phenomenon and not an isolated incident in the history of Georgian television journalism, as some experts now explain in an attempt to mitigate the situation. What happened on the air of “Rustavi-2” is a characteristic feature and essence of the information policy of many Georgian media in relation to entire nations and individual politicians.
 
 Certain traditions of the early 90s are clearly traced here. Then, on the eve of the Georgian-Abkhaz war, an aggressive anti-Abkhaz information campaign actively participated and set an example to journalists, primarily by representatives of the Georgian intelligentsia and politics. It is worth remembering the speech of the Minister of Defense of Georgia Colonel Gia Karkarashvili on August 25, 1992 on the air. Then he promised to “sacrifice the lives of 100 thousand Georgians in order to exterminate 97 thousand Abkhazians from the face of the earth,” and Georgian President Shevardnadze called him a knight! The Abkhaz video archive is rich in similar performances.
 
The Georgian “traditions” of the 90s continue now such as Gabunia and the like. The style of interviewing by correspondent of the same company with Peter Tolstoy, the head of the Russian parliamentary delegation in Strasbourg, demonstrates the essence of modern Georgian journalism - this is hysteria and permissiveness. All this, of course, has nothing to do with journalistic ethics and, moreover, questions the level of Georgian culture in general and the peculiarities of the national ideology that gave rise to such “journalism”.
