Georgia’s president vetoes media law that has provoked weeks of protests

By The Associated Press on May 18, 2024.

TBILISI, Georgia (AP) – Georgia’s president on Saturday vetoed the so-called “Russian law” targeting media that has sparked weeks of mass protests.

President Salome Zourabichvili said earlier in the week that she considered the law “unacceptable.”
