Ukraine: Hundreds join Saakashvili’s Ukrainian parliament rally

At least 400 people gathered near the Ukrainian Parliament on Sunday in a rally organized by Mikhail Saakashvili, the former president of Georgia and the former governor of Odessa region in Kiev. People set up tents, brought water, chanted slogans, supporting Saakashvili. The rally was monitored by 700 police officers. «If they [Ukrainian government] do not want to listen to us they do not... Еще want to hear, then they have to go out,» stressed Mikhail Saakashvili. Earlier, Saakashvili called on supporters to protect him from Ukrainian President Poroshenko's decision to extradite him, following the rejection of his application for refugee status. During a previous rally four days ago, Saakashvili said that a «real exam» is coming for those in power in Ukraine and it will be held on the 7th of November, when the Ukrainian parliament observes a plenary session to discuss the bills the demonstrators want passed. The rally is just one of a string of demonstrations against Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko. The initial demonstration saw people protesting against alleged government corruption and calling for the instalment of anti-corruption courts.
