We have information that representatives of the radical opposition are preparing materials using programs such as “Deep Fake”. Such a statement made today the Executive Secretary of the Georgian Dream.
According to Irakli Kobakhidze the videos, which may depict members of the ruling party, including party founder Bidzina Ivanishvili, will aim to mislead voters.
“There are several days left before the elections. It is very important during this period to maintain a constructive and calm election environment. Naturally, with the approach of election day, the risk of provocations and as well as the intensity of the spread of lies increases, including the use of Russian resources, which we witnessed yesterday on one of the broadcasting companies owned by the UNM.
We once again call on all political entities to refrain from actions that could negatively affect the election environment. We call on our party members, activists and supporters to show maximum patience.
Voters are asked to be extremely careful about any information spread on TV or social networks, so as not to be influenced by misinformation, the circulation of which has been increasing day by day in recent weeks.
We have information that the representatives of the radical opposition are preparing materials using programs such as, for example, “Defeat Fake”, we remind you that through such programs, it is even possible to falsify people’s video images. Such materials can be posted on social networks on these days in order to spread another misinformation through new technologies. We know about the general intention, but we do not know more specific details”, - said the Executive Secretary of the Georgian Dream.
