The Gorchakov Fund expresses condolences in regards to the recent passing of Bezhan Khuridze

28 December 2015

On December 27, 2015 Bezhan Khuridze passed away. It is hard to estimate the scope of personality of that person – an outstanding athlete, well-known politician, talented scientist and popular public figure.


He made an invaluable contribution into building extensive and close relations between Russia and Georgia while understanding an inextricable connection between our nations. On July 2013, the Institute of International Relations headed by Bezhan Khuridze jointly with the Gorchakov Fund became a co-founder of the Russia-Georgian/Georgian-Russian Public Center in Tbilisi. Bezhan Khuridze treated activities of that center with much responsibility and spoke for openness and trust within its walls.

Bezhan Khuridze knew how to appreciate friendship, he kept it up for many years and was always ready to come to the rescue of his friends.

A team of the Gorchakov Fund expresses condolences to all those who knew and loved Bezhan Khuridze.
