Saakashvili in Poland after Ukraine deportation
    2018-February-14  08:53    Shenzhen Daily

FORMER Georgian President Mikheil Saakashvili vowed Monday to “fight till the end” after Ukraine deported him to Poland following a falling-out with Ukraine’s leader Petro Poroshenko.

Saakashvili, 50, is accused of trying to stage a coup sponsored by Russia in Ukraine, where he has led rallies calling for Poroshenko’s ouster, accusing him of failing to fight corruption.

The former Georgian president had obtained Ukrainian nationality, which was revoked last year.

On Monday, Ukraine’s border guard service said he had been residing in Ukraine “illegally” and was thus sent back to Poland.

“I love Poland but my fight is in Ukraine and Georgia, and I’ll fight till the end,” Saakashvili said in a video interview from Warsaw, posted on Twitter by a journalist from Poland’s commercial radio station RMF FM.

“We’ll be fine. We will win that battle.”

Earlier on Monday, Saakashvili, the former governor of Ukraine’s Odessa region, was detained by masked men at a restaurant in central Kiev, witnesses said.

His supporters went to Kiev’s two airports in a vain effort to prevent his deportation.

Saakashvili’s opposition party said in a statement that his lawyer “filed a petition on the kidnapping of the politician” to the police.

A few hours later his close ally David Sakvarelidze wrote on Facebook that Saakashvili had been deported to Poland and was in Warsaw.

“I was very nicely met by the Polish side and the Ukrainian side was absolutely outrageous, totally lawless,” Saakashvili said.(SD-Agencies)
