MOSCOW, May 21 (Itar-Tass) — According to preliminary information, Roman Dumbadze, the former commander of the Batumi brigade of the Georgian Defense Ministry, was killed in the west of Moscow, a source in the capital’s law enforcement bodies told Itar-Tass on Monday.
According to his information, two unidentified men shot dead a man who was inside a car parked near house No 30 on Rublevsky highway.
“According to preliminary information, it was Roman Dumbadze, the former commander of the Batumi brigade of the Georgian defense ministry, who was killed,” said the source.
Dumbadze was serving in Georgia a term for high treason after refusing to obey the Tbilisi authorities. He was exchanged for Georgian servicemen during the Georgian-Ossetian conflict in August 2008.
