Saakashvili not returning to Ukraine today
Former head of Ukraine's Odesa Regional State Administration Mikheil Saakashvili, who planned to arrive in Ukraine on April 1, explained that he was going to do this if incumbent Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko had failed to get into a run-off.
"I said from the very beginning: I thought Poroshenko would not go to the second round and I would fly. If he had failed, I would have arrived," Interfax cited him as saying.
He clarified that as soon as Poroshenko "loses power and his order not to let me enter the country loses force," then Saakashvili will definitely take advantage of "the legal right to return to Ukraine."
Earlier, Saakashvili said that he would fly to Ukraine on April 1, as he was confident that Poroshenko would lose the March 31 presidential elections, therefore no one would block Saakashvili's arrival in the country. To prove his plans, he showed an online ticket on the screen of his smartphone.
