Saakashvili promises to be cautious when returning to Ukraine's politics
Former Georgian president and ex-governor of the Odessa Region Mikhail Saakashvili, who has regained Ukrainian citizenship yesterday, pledged to return to the country’s politics "cautiously."
"I missed Ukraine and at first, I want to meet my friends and I will be cautious when returning to politics," Saakashvili told "1 + 1" TV channel. "There will be something, but not that I will become part of any local political process from the first minutes…I will be very careful," he said.
When asked if he wishes to become a prime minister, Saakashvili recalled that former Ukrainian President Pyotr Poroshenko had offered him this position three times, but he refused. "There may be different circumstances, but now I don’t see myself in this position," he noted.
Saakashvili also said he was not afraid of returning to Ukraine, where he faces a criminal investigation.
