Also the program shows a meeting, apparently recorded on a hidden camera, between Udaltsov and Givi Targamadze, the chairman of Georgia’s parliamentary committee for defense and security.
The narrator describes Targamadze as an individual with experience organizing the “color revolutions” of the past decade that swept opposition leaders into power in Georgia and Ukraine amid mass protests over election-rigging allegations.
The first part of “Anatomy of a Protest,” broadcast in March, focused on the "Big White Circle" protest on February 26 and claimed that many people were paid to attend the human-chain event, which involved tens of thousands of opposition supporters.
