We have been studying the influence of the Russian FSB in Georgia for a long time, we have repeatedly published concrete evidence about how Bidzina Ivanishvili's oligarchic "clan" helps Putin's terrorist regime evade sanctions, said Levan Khabeishvili, Chairman of the United National Movement.
At today's briefing, Khabeishvili spoke about the influence of the Russian FSB and the members of Otar Partskhaladze's "clan", through whom, according to Khabeishvili, he manages the Revenue Service of the Ministry of Finance, Customs Department, Financial Police, strategic facilities, the ports of Batumi and Poti.
"Today we are presenting to you the members of FSB agent Otar Partskhaladze's "clan", through which Russian spy Partskhaladze controls the Revenue Service of the Ministry of Finance, Customs Department, Financial Police, strategic facilities, the ports of Batumi and Poti, where among them, allegedly, sanctioned cargo is being transported. He controls the Ministry of Finance, the Revenue Service and the Customs Department through Vladimer Khundadze, who is the deputy head of the same service, however, in fact, he manages absolutely everything in this department. At the Ministry of Finance, he ensures smooth transportation of sanctioned cargo and directly controls customs. Soso Ramishvili, Head of the Financial Police, is under his direct influence, who at the same time worked in SUS, in the railways and is a person with close ties with Ucha Mamatsashvili. Everyone should know that apart from the fact that Partskhaladze is a proven spy, Bidzina Ivanishvili's cousin Ucha Mamatsashvili is clearly involved in this espionage activity, and according to our information, he got Russian citizenship with Ucha Mamatsashvili's help. And his main ally in this activity is Ucha Mamatsashvili.
FSB agent Otar Partskhaladze and Grigol Liluashvili control strategic facilities in the country. With their lobbying, a person with a suspicious past (son of Shevardnadze's security minister) and Russian special services, named Givi Kutateladze, was appointed as the head of the port security service”, Khabeishvili said.
According to him, they will continue to investigate the influence of the Russian FSB in Georgia, we definitely expose all those agents who represent the FSB network in Georgia and help Putin's terrorist regime, harming the national and state interests of Georgia.
“Sanctions will apply to all of you and soon you will be brought to justice for treason", Levan Khabeishvili said.
