The disseminated information about Diana Bagrationi becoming the vice mayor of New York is false. In fact, Diana Bagrationi herself denied the claims. The shared images were posted by Bagrationi herself on her Facebook page along with the commentary to congratulate the newly-elected mayor of New York, Eric Adams, on his win in the mayoral elections.
The false information about her wasshared by the user Maiko Kusiani Machabeli as well; however, she later apologized for spreading incorrect information, noting that Diana Bagrationi herself contacted her and asked her to correct the information.
