The law, to which the European Union opposes, states that a media body financed at a rate higher than 20% by a foreign entity may be considered a “foreign agent” and restrictions will apply accordingly.
The European Union opposes this law. Supporters of the European Union in Georgia call it the “Russian law” – and have demonstrated against it in recent months.

In recent weeks, the Prime Minister of Georgia proposed to the European Union that he would shelve the law in exchange for Georgia’s entry into the European Union to receive full membership.
It did not happen.
