Ukraine: Saakashvili takes aim at Poroshenko, criticises «rampant corruption» in Ukraine

Former Georgian President Mikheil Saakashvili criticised the «rampant corruption» in Ukraine, in Lviv, on Monday, after he crossed into Ukraine from Poland yesterday in an attempt to reclaim his Ukrainian citizenship. He accused the Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko of deeming him «no longer credible as a reformer» after he refused to cooperate with Poroshenko, he stated, «They wanted to... Еще separate me from Ukrainian politics keep me away shut me off, that is exactly like the Soviet Union used to shut off with dissidents». The Ukrainian President stated earlier today that police should investigate Saakashvili's illegal crossing into Ukraine. He told press, «I am fighting against rampant corruption, against the fact that oligarchs are in full control of Ukraine again», adding, «Ukrainian's life and liberty is at stake and they are much more important than the life of individual politicians». Saakashvili, who is a stateless citizen having had his Ukrainian citizenship rescinded, was previously denied entry to the country when he was at a railway station in Poland.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. Saakashvili'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.
