  • Great. But high risk. The defacto ruler of Georgia is the Russian educated crook and billionaire Ivanishvili. Could putler order Saakash’s arrest? The charge: leading Georgia out of the hopelessly corrupt post Soviet hell it was living under and bringing democracy and happiness to Georgians.
    At least until the rat fuhrer invaded.
