Tbilisi adds Abramovich to the list of revolutionaries2011-05-10 21:07
Hot-headedness of the Georgian Party that plans to celebrate the Victory over fascist Germany as the start of revolutionary struggle aimed at overthrowing Mikheil Saakashvili seems to scare the Georgian dictator's sidekicks in earnest. As a result, Mishiko's team has hurled all effort into defamation of the oppositional party. According to the newest theory of regime-controlled mass media, the Georgian Party has Putin's support and is financed by billionaire Roman Abramovich on Putin's order.
As pro-governmental mass media claim, Vladimir Putin has delegated financial support for the pro-Russian wing of the Georgian opposition to one of Russia's richest men.
One could say that the authors of this speculation are not creative: such theories have become the signature of the Georgian press. If not for one "but": for some strange reason anonymous inventors of this new political joke dragged the Georgian Party into the camp of pro-Russian opposition. What will be the reaction of Irakli Okruashvili whose Russophobia is much more intense than Mishiko's?
Nonetheless, it's wiser to leave this astonishing idea on the conscience of the unknown authors and follow the thread of their non-trivial imagination. According to Saakashvili's hangers-on, the mediator between Russia's White house and former governor of Chukotka on one side and the leaders of the opposition party on the other is ex president of the Georgian soccer federation, businessman Merab Zhordania.
Indeed, the former leader of Tbilisi's Dynamo is a friend of the Russian billionaire who, as rumored, helped him acquire Vitesse soccer club (the Netherlands). Thus, Mr. Zhordania is a Georgian friend of the Russian oligarch. Consequently, as pro-presidential mass media believe, he simply must act as a sponsor of the pro-Russian wing of the Georgian opposition. However, this "solid" conclusion does not explain why Okruashvili and Co are part of this wing.
This is where the presidential team's creativity fails. Good relations between Zhordania and Abramovich are likely, but other contacts of the former president of Georgia' soccer federation are not that obvious.
Mishiko's conspiracy theorists make reference to the information of one month ago when it was reported that Merab Zhordania was allegedly planning to start a new partnership with the Georgian Party.
