Ukraine: Saakashvili announces plans to settle in central Ukraine during Kiev address

Former Odessa Region Governor and Georgian President Mikheil Saakashvili arrived outside the Presidential Administration building in Kiev, Tuesday, where he called on authorities to hand him documents related to the revocation of his Ukrainian citizenship. «When there are 300 new deputies and when there is a law on impeachment, I want to see how any president, not only the current president... Еще, ignores the demands of the people,» Saakashvili told a crowd of his supporters. The former Georgian president also stated that he would settle in central Ukraine, in the Cherkassy region, and then «travel all over Ukraine.» Around 100 police officers were dispatched to the site to provide security. On July 26, Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko deprived Saakashvili of his Ukrainian citizenship. Together with his supporters, the former Georgian leader succeeded in breaking through border control and entering Ukraine from Poland earlier in September. Reportedly, some 22 border control officers were injured as a result of the Mostitsky breakthrough. The next hearing on Saakashvili's forced entry into Ukraine is set to take place on September 22.
