Chernovetsky to win over Tbilisi with his money and personality2011-02-02 12:32
Leonid Chernovetsky, mayor of Kiev who broke down under a heavy political burden, decides to move to Tbilisi as actively rumored in Kiev's corridors of power. No doubt it's great luck for the capital of Georgia. Tbilisi will acquire an important resident not only because Chernovetsky will drag his capitals here but also because he is a flamboyant personality. The only thing to do is organize official resignation for the mayor of Kiev.
By the way, they say that managing Kiev was not smooth for Chernovetsky. The mother of Russian cities sank deep into land redistributions and scandals. And Kiev residents are no more surprised at the mayor's extravagant tricks. The general opinion of both supporters and opponents is that he is a brilliant showman but not a politician and even less a man to solve economic issues.
Having been the mayor of Kiev for four years, Chernovetsky got offended at his subjects for their lack of understanding and disappeared. It was the most eccentric thing (and certainly the last one) he ventured in his post of the mayor of Kiev. He has not been seen in his office or his luxurious country residence for several months already. Looks like it's time to put him on a wanted list: after all this is not a common Kiev resident but one of the most influential politicians in Ukraine. But instead of placing the politician's photo on the "wanted by police" stand the country authorities simply forgot that Kiev has a mayor.
The lost politician was not looked for until last week, when journalists asked PM Nikolay Azarov where the mayor was, actually. In reply the chair of government called to find Chernovetsky and bring him to his workplace by Monday asking Kiev residents if they were missing the mayor.
Seems like a strange escape. Chernovetsky does not go to work, officials say they contact him regularly and then it turns out unexpectedly that the half-disgraced mayor is moving to Tbilisi.
What made Leonid Chernovetsky move to the capital of Georgia? As it turns out, his wife - Alina Ayvazova was born in Tbilisi. She comes from an influential Armenian family. Her father was a well-known shadow capitalist (tsekhovik) at the time when people were sent to prison for entrepreneurship. The Ayvazov family is remembered well in Tbilisi's old district of Avlabar.
Chernovetsky is not going to waste time doing nothing in the beautiful Caucasian city. He plans to follow the example of his father-in-law and do business by investing into hotels and trade centers, as mass media report.
