Former Georgian President and Governor of Odessa Mikhail Saakashvili addressed crowds of his supporters outside of the Verkhovna Rada on Wednesday. His speech comes mere hours after police carried out a manhunt for him through the tent camp surrounding the Ukrainian Parliament. Saakashvili called the Attorney General of Ukraine an “illiterate dunce,” and denounced his actions as “illegal.” The... Еще former Georgian leader then announced that a meeting would be held later in the day to discuss future plans, underlining his desire to rid Ukraine’s law enforcement agencies of ‘criminal gangs’ and to initiate the impeachment of what he claims to be “an organised criminal group led by Poroshenko.” Saakashvili firmly denounced Poroshenko’s allegations that he is linked to the Russian Federal Security Service (FSB). An injured activist recounted Wednesday morning’s police search in the tent camp as a harrowing episode, with law enforcement officers allegedly hitting activists and dragging them through the mud. On Tuesday, Saakashvili had threatened to jump off his apartment building as security services searched his home as part of a criminal investigation, before he was eventually brought down and detained. The van that was supposed to take Saakashvili away was then intercepted by throngs of his supporters, leading to a one-hour standoff between protesters and security services that saw Saakashvili let loose. Saakashvili, President of Georgia between 2004 and 2013, went on to establish the Ukrainian opposition movement 'Movement of the New Forces’ in February 2017, conducting a campaign against endemic official corruption in Ukraine and calling for the instalment of anti-corruption courts.
