Christina Pashou, founder of the School for New Leaders Initiative, says visitors from different countries today spoke to students about the role of Russian propaganda in the media.
“Speakers coming from different countries and talk about the role of Russian propaganda in the media and how it affects Georgia. I think it is interesting for Georgian students to hear from the field leader. I think they will understand that media freedom is the most important thing for democracy, because if there is no freedom of opinion and expression, then there is no democracy,” - Pashou said.
