Putin-style Bill Row: Thousands Storm Georgian Parliament, Armed Police Push Back | Watch

Georgian police pushed back thousands of protesters who blocked the entrance of the Parliament in Tbilisi. The protesters had staged an all-night demonstration against the Russian-style ‘foreign agents’ bill, which is to be debated later today in the Parliament. The bill, which requires organisations, receiving more than 20% of their funding from abroad, to register as agents of foreign influence or face fines, is being opposed by Georgians, and the U.S.-led West. It has come to be seen as key to whether Georgia continues its push for European Union & NATO membership, or instead builds ties with Russia. Watch for more details. INTERNATIONAL NEWS
