Supposed suicide of pro-Russian politologist

2011-03-03 11:43

14159.jpegThe death of Ramaz Klimiashvili, a Georgian politologist is considered a suicide by the police. The day before his death a female friend of his came over to see gas burners on, as she claims. However, the expert did not have serious reasons to kill himself. He had enemies though. He used to say that Mikheil Saakashvili had not left his people no other choice but a revolution and condemned the president for provoking Russia into hostilities. Now he is silent forever - like late PM Zurab Zhvania.  


Ramaz Klimiashvili was a special politologist. Independent mass media quoted him to criticize the country leaders. Pro-governmental newspapers and TV channels willingly conveyed his opinion, usually distorted and contracted, as an example of inadequacy and treason. Some people viewed him as a Russian spy whose death was welcomed with joy.

In 2009 Giya Tortladze, a deputy and a mountain-climber who came down to the legislative body straight from the mountains, publicly accused Klimiashvili of covert intelligence work hinting at unspecified KGB lists where he was mentioned under the nickname of Sasha, as alleged. Yet, the politologist miraculously escaped the arrest even at the periods of Mikheil Saakashvili's aggravated spy mania. Probably due to his old merits, i.e. the advice that the new president took.

Klimiashvili is not the first disillusioned supporter of the Rose Revolution leader who switched to the opposition and died under obscure circumstances. Up to now the official cause of PM Zurab Zhvania's death is gas poisoning, almost like the expert's story. The only difference that Zhvania's case was transformed into an accident, and now the ministry of interior has no doubts about Klimiashvili's suicide.

A close friend of Ramaz's with the Russian name Marina Terentyeva informed that the day before his death she had come to see him and felt the smell of gas. "I immediately went to the kitchen and turned off the gas. Then he said that I always come to save him", - she says in a video recording disseminated by the interior ministry. The next day no one opened the door after a ring and Marina unlocked it with her own keys. There was strong smell inside the apartment and the man was dead.
