MOSCOW, October 28 (Itar-Tass) - Two major scoops are imminent in Georgia after the presidential election, political scientist and pro-rector of Plekhanov Russian University of Economics Sergey Markov said during a video-conference between Moscow and Tbilisi examining results of the weekend poll.

Convincing victory of the Georgian Dream coalition candidate Georgi Margvelashvili had laid foundations for a thaw in Russia-Georgia relations, Markov said. But, he added, “two major scoops were brewing” amid latest revelations of U.S. global spying, including on European leaders. One of them may be connected to investigations into the mysterious death of then Prime Minister Zurab Zhvania in 2005. “It is arguable that he died a violent death,” Markov said.

He added that investigation may conclude that the results of the previous probe led by then U.S. Vice-president Dick Cheney with participation of the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) “might have been falsified”, so the need may arise to prosecute those guilty of the crime.

Another sensation might result from a thorough probe into the roots of the military conflict between Russia and Georgia in South Ossetia in 2008. Markov believes military action of the Georgian side may have been instigated by the U.S., then exerting much pressure on Georgia.
