“The west discredited itself by recognising Saakashvili’s victory”

Georgian opposition leader and former Georgian Defence Minister, Irakly Okruashvili, and Dmitry Babich, political analyst

The suspicious sudden death of Georgian oppositioner Badri Patarkatsishvili, that occurred in London, left many questions - was it a fatality or a plot of his political or business opponents? Billionaire Patarkatsishvili was a well known politician in Georgia - he won 7% of the vote at the Presidential election in the country that took place in January. And he was called the main sponsor of the Georgian opposition that is now getting ready for the Parliamentary election in spring. Why did Patarkatsishvili die, and what may be the consequences? We will ask these questions to Georgian opposition leader in exile - Irakly Okruashvili and political analyst here in Moscow, Dmitry Babich.
