Saakashvili plans to change situation in both Georgia and Ukraine
Former Georgian president and an opposition figure in Ukraine, Mikheil Saakashvili, said he planned to return to both Georgia and Ukraine to change the situation in these two countries.
"I will return to Ukraine, because I have a legitimate right to live there. I will also return to Georgia. Oligarchs' rule will come to an end much sooner than expected… In the existing circumstances, it is important to return and change the situation in both countries," Saakashvili said in an interview with Georgian Rustavi 2 broadcaster.
Saakashvili noted however that he planned to fly to the Netherlands later on Wednesday. "Then, I plan to move across Europe because I have meetings planned in Brussels, in Germany, in France, than again in Poland," he stressed.
Saakashvili said that he will not give up on his battle against President Petro Poroshenko's government despite being outside Ukraine, RFE/RL reported.
On Monday, Saakashvili was detained in Ukraine and then deported to Poland where he said later that he would not give up his attempts to return to Ukraine. He said after arrival in Warsaw that the Polish authorities had given state guards to him.
