Saakashvili: I have no plans to organize another revolution in Ukraine
Former Georgian president, former governor of Ukraine's Odessa region, the leader of the New Forces Movement, Mikhail Saakashvili, said at a rally in the city of Vinnitsa that he has no plans to organize another revolution in Ukraine.
"Although I am an old revolutionary, I don’t want to organize another revolution," Gordon media outlet quoted him as saying.
Instead, he said, he and his supporters would use legal tools to have their demands implemented. "We will travel around entire Ukraine to collect demands. Then, these demands will be referred to the Verkhovna Rada (parliament) and the ‘supreme profiteer,’" he noted.
On September 10, Saakashvili and his supporters broke through a police cordon at the Shegeni checkpoint at the Polish-Ukrainian border to cross into Ukraine. During the incident, 22 Ukrainian law enforcement officers were injured. Police launched criminal proceedings into the illegal border crossing. Police also launched a criminal investigation into Saakashvili’s disobedience to police.
