TBILISI – The leader of Georgia's opposition Georgian Dream coalition, billionaire Bidzina Ivanishvili, has harshly criticized a five-hour questioning of his brother’s U.S. partner at Tbilisi airport on June 14.

Ivanishvili said the questioning of Alexander Ronzhes is an indication that Georgia’s current leadership is in "agony," adding that Tbilisi would have to explain its “insult” to U.S. authorities.

Alexander Ronzhes, a U.S citizen, is a co-owner of the Global TV cable network provider in Georgia in which Ivanishvili's brother owns the bulk of the shares.

Ronzhes was stopped at Tbilisi airport as he was leaving the country.

Officials said Ronzhes was questioned as a witness in an ongoing money-laundering probe.

The officials did not say who was targeted by the probe.

I do not interfere in election process, however,
Who is really Ivanishvili, with his trigger finger up?
The same insignia is used by Putin, hatefull graver,
By GRU, Spetcnaz and their oboroten's Pops.

Dressed as "Halifat terrorists", like Umarov,
The baby-killers of Beslan, forge platcdarm
For invading Russian armies of death plots.
First someone like Putin - hatefull finger up.

Than someone like Umarov, also finger up,
Unleashing forge-terrorism in another place.
Than GRU, Spetcnaz and 58 army attacks,
And all the nazi Russia victoriously finger up.
Signals Ivanishvili Putin? Or sleepers maze?
