They have been established by a famous Russian businessman of the Georgian origin Alexander Ebralidze. He failed to arrive to Georgia but stated during a video conference that his purpose is to obtain Georgian citizenship so as to use his opportunities for his country's benefit.
The businessman also declared his intention to come to Georgia. "I want to use my physical, material and intellectual opportunities for the benefit of Georgia, its people and culture", - said Alexander Ebralidze who leads the World Congress of Georgians.
Last year, the 55-year-old native of Batumi asked President Mikheil Saakashvili to give him Georgian citizenship but was refused.
Georgian authorities underline his criminal past. Earlier, Ebralidze left open the possibility of running for presidency in Georgia in case he managed to obtain citizenship.
