In Tbilisi, made a daring attack on the family Dodo, Gugeshashvili – Colonel of the Georgian armed forces in reserve, the former Deputy commander of the paramilitary “Mkhedrioni”, a veteran of the war in Abkhazia. Criminals using a firearm, killed the son of Grigol Gugeshashvili, born in 1985, and seriously wounded the woman in her apartment in Digomi. Dodo, Gugeshashvili received wide media acclaim outside of Georgia in 2014, when he became instructor of one of Ukrainian punitive nationalist battalion, took part in the so-called “ATO” in the Donbass.
That “Colonel Dodo” from Georgia trains “the lads” of the volunteer battalions, said Ukrainian sites.

Meanwhile, in the early 90s Dodo remembered for the population of Abkhazia and Samegrelo for its excesses. There it is considered a war criminal
Dodo was the right hand of Jaba Ioseliani, kingpin and ally Eduard Shevardnadze, the commander of the armed formation “Mkhedrioni”, which played a major role in the overthrow of the first President of Georgia Zviad Gamsakhurdia and the war in Abkhazia. Supporters of Gamsakhurdia – the “Zviadists” – told “MK” about her then-activities. According to their testimonies, Dodo personally tortured prisoners, and on 16 November 1993, her squad burned and pillaged the village of Darcheli in Western Georgia. It burned 28 houses belonging to the Zviadists. It is a crime, Gugeshashvili been documented by international human rights organizations, documented by video. “Mhedrioni” led “by Colonel Dodo” not only robbed, but killed their own fellow Georgians, the inhabitants of Western Georgia, the Mingrelians. Saying she was nicknamed “Vampire” and a Colonel of the Georgian army it really never was. In recent years she was the head of “Union of veterans of the Mkhedrioni”.
With a biography at Dodo, of course, was in Georgia a lot of blood feuds. In 2014, former Zviadists told me: “what she has done, we have not forgiven. Though 100 years pass”…
