Kremlin: Saakashvili has certain way with politics from eating tie to climbing on roofs
Kremlin Spokesman Dmitry Peskov commented the arrest of former Georgian leader and ex-Odessa Regional Governor Mikhail Saakashvili in Kiev.
"Kiev has surprised us once again and so has Saakashvili," Peskov said. "He has a certain way with politics from eating his tie to climbing on roofs, he’s paved his way in politics and the road has been a bit rocky. Now he has gotten himself into a fix," TASS cited the spokesman as saying.
"We are not accustomed to replying to the statements by people who perch on rooftops," he said when commenting on Saakashvili’s claims that Russian President Vladimir Putin had a role in allegedly plotting his "abduction."
"This is Ukraine’s headache and I wouldn't wish this upon an enemy," he said answering a question if Moscow is taking sides in Saakashvili’s standoff with Ukrainian President Pyotr Poroshenko. He stressed that Russia does not view the Ukrainian people as its enemy.
This morning, Saakashvili was detained in Kiev. The Ukraine's Security Service issued a statement saying that Saakashvili was charged with "complicity with members of criminal organizations and concealing their activity by providing premises and by other means."
