The crime was committed the night before on Bozhenko street in the Shevchenko district of Kiev, said the police. As reported by Ukrainian media, the customer of the crime was Georgian “thief in law”, said Sergey, nicknamed “Guga”. Thus the leader of the underworld trying to get his compatriot to influence the Kiev court of appeal that will decide on his extradition to Hungary, where he will prison for attempted illegal acquisition of citizenship. If the Ukrainian Themis will release a word, Saakashvili will get your jeep in one piece.
It is noteworthy that throughout his political career in Ukraine, Saakashvili boasted of his humility and rejection of corruption in any form. Therefore, at every public event he went to the nondescript car from the Czech Republic at the price of 20 thousand dollars. Note also that the official monthly salary of the Governor of Odessa region is 5644 hryvnia or $ 227. In this regard, the Ukrainians joke that “the thief stole the car”.
Denis DENISOV, the head of the Ukrainian branch of the CIS Institute:
The head of Saakashvili’s “fire hat”. According to the Declaration of his income, his money is only enough for a sausage with potatoes, and this jeep he did have to work about 100 years. People need to think about how sincerely the Governor of Odessa region in the fight against corruption. Obviously we are dealing with a professional corrupt official who tries to play the role of ardent fighters with this one of the main problems of modern Ukraine.
Vadim KARASEV, the head of the Institute of global strategies:
– Car theft has become a cruel mockery of Saakashvili, because the crime coincided with the anniversary of the reform of the national police, which is responsible for its team. Besides, the car was very expensive, and now no one can call him disinterested. The administration of the President of Ukraine, between Saakashvili and Poroshenko have an agreement that he will remain as Governor of Odessa until autumn 2016, when it will become clear the first results of the parliamentary elections in Georgia. If his supporters will be able to occupy any high positions in their historical homeland, then he’ll go back there again to compete for the presidency, and if not, he will look for a new job in Ukraine. It is inevitable, as the Odessa elite disobeyed Saakashvili, and in consequence, he has failed to conduct any important and reform.
