Guram Sharadze, head of a small nationalist movement, was shot dead in central Tbilisi on Sunday night.
Police say a man arrested shortly after the shooting has confessed, but they declined to give further details out of concern about compromising the investigation.
Sharadze, who led the Faith, Fatherland and Language movement, was a prominent critic of Western influences in Georgia and had especially denounced the civil-society work funded by U.S. philanthropist George Soros. ~Pravda

This is sad news. You can be fairly sure that someone who opposes Western influence, Saakashvili and Soros truly was a Georgian patriot. The nasty personal dictatorship of Saakashvili grows stronger by the day, and Washington winks at all of this because he is a useful tool in the Caucasus and a good means to pester the Russians on their southern border. Such are the fruits of “people power” in Georgia.
