A sponsored post depicting a presentation of the results of public opinion poll commissioned by the Alliance of Patriots party had been published on Facebook page Tinp.ge- დღეს პოლიტიკაში (Tinp.ge – Today in Politics) from August 13 to August 18, 2020. The results were provided as an alternative to the surveys commissioned by the National Democratic Institute (NDI) and the International Republican Institute (IRI). According to Facebook Ad Library, about USD 1,000-1,500 was spent on the five-day long ad.
Moreover, USD 100-199 was spent on the post published by the same page, covering the news briefing convened by Irma Inashvili, leader of the Alliance of Patriots, where she talks about an investigative report released by Dossier Center, which claims that the election campaign of the Alliance of Patriots party was financially backed by the Russian government.
During August, Tinp.ge posted three more ads supporting the Alliance of Patriots party. Each ad costs about USD 100. The post published on August 11, where Irma Inashvili talks about young people joining the party, was sponsored twice. The sponsored post published on August 7 provides Nicolas Sarkozy’s quotes about the 2008 August war.
