According to the Georgian diplomat, Phillips crashed into the Embassy during an exhibition dedicated to the Russian-Georgian war in 2008 and started shouting anti-Georgian and anti-NATO slogans. In particular, as he said, Georgia was falsifying data about those events.
“The Embassy was a victim of the Russian aggression, as a man with a camera has suddenly crashed into there and was shouting aggressively that this was a propaganda,” Beruchashvili believes.
Graham Phillips is well-known as a scandalous journalist of Russia Today and Zvezda TV channels. In June of 2014, Ukraine’s SBU detained him and expelled from the country without a right to come for three years. Later, the journalist returned to the Russian Federation and then he went to Donbas and continued working. He was accused of trying to disrupt hostages exchange in autumn in 2016.
