Eugenia "Juna" Yuvashevna Davitashvili (Georgian: ევგენია ჯუნა დავითაშვილი; 22 July 1949 – 8 June 2015) was a Russian faith healer of Assyrian[1] descent who claimed the power to cure cancer, knit broken bodies, and prolong life beyond 100 years.[2] She took her Georgian-language surname from her former husband.

Politics[edit]

In 1995, she participated in the Russian legislative election at the head of the Juna Davitashvili Bloc. Her 0.47% of votes were not enough to give her any seat in the State Duma.

Experiments[edit]

In 1983 and 1984, physicist and psi researcher, Russell Targ, his daughter Elisabeth Targ, and Keith Harary visited the Soviet Union as guests of the Soviet Academy of Sciences. In Moscow they were able to discuss remote viewing research with Russian scientists, visit psychics, including Davitashvili, and allegedly even carry out with her some remote viewing experiments between Moscow and San Francisco.[3][4]

Death[edit]

Davitashvili died in Moscow on 8 June 2015, after two days in a coma, according to actor Stanislav Sadalsky. He said she had problems with blood circulation.[5]
