The Georgian opposition on Sunday denounced a mock television report of a Russian invasion as government-sponsored propaganda aimed at smearing President Mikheil Saakashvili’s critics.

“This government’s treatment of its own people is outrageous. I am sure that every second of this programme was agreed with Saakashvili. Many people suffered psychological trauma,” opposition leader Nino Burjanadze told AFP.

“Every word about me was malicious slander and I will sue both Imedi television and the authorities,” said Burjanadze, who heads the Democratic Movement-United Georgia party.

Showing footage from the war, the report said Russian tanks were headed for the capital Tbilisi and that Saakashvili had been killed.
