Ukraine: «I have no right to return until I have travelled all over Ukraine» — Saakashvili

Former President of Georgia and former Governor of Odessa Mikheil Saakashvili, held a rally in the central square of the city of Ivano-Frankovsk, western Ukraine, on Saturday. The former Odessa governor claimed that he rejected the post of prime-minister «three times» which was offered him by the Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko saying that he «wants to help» but «cannot initiate the reforms... Еще». Saakashvili went on to criticise Kiev administration. «We have corruption, we have oligarchs, and we do not have development», he said. Saakashvili reassured his supporters that he intends to travel «all over Ukraine» where he claims he was not allowed before leaving the country. Saakashvili, who is a stateless citizen having had his Ukrainian citizenship rescinded, was previously denied entry to the country when he was at a railway station in Poland. Earlier on Sunday, he was allowed in and was met at the border crossing by ex-Ukrainian Prime Minister Yulia Tymoshenko. Saakashvil's return to Ukraine comes despite the pending threat of being extradited to Georgia on charges of alleged corruption and abuse of office while president.
