Former President of Georgia and the Governor of Odessa region Mikhail Saakashvili returned to Kiev on the morning of 19 September, but now in the status of the disgraced opposition, and not the favorite of the head of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko. Surrounded by hundreds of police he told the assembled onlookers and journalists, why it is still not sued for deprivation of Ukrainian citizenship and when to start the overthrow of the “chocolate maker”.

The return comes one day after a triumphant speech at a mass meeting in Vinnitsa, in which Miho said that supporters of the current government can go to his “chocolate maker”, but he will remain with his people. However, as it became known on Tuesday on the threshold of presidential administration (AP), thereby Saakashvili did not want to call for the immediate overthrow of the President. On the contrary, according to the opposition, now the Republic needs neither revolution nor any other socio-political upheaval.
In addition, Saakashvili said that on the first floor up is the “stock of money” to bribe the deputies of the Verkhovna Rada, so the first thing you need to prohibit re-election to Parliament. Only once in the Verkhovna Rada will join 300 members of the Spartans, whom Saakashvili personally taken away throughout Ukraine, will need to raise the issue of impeachment Poroshenko.
Meanwhile, the “old revolutionary”, as he calls himself, the former President of Georgia, plans to set up headquarters in Cherkasy region, where he will collect the demands of the people to power. Thus, on September 20, Saakashvili will speak in the river, where, according to him, already preparing a massive provocation with participation “aunts”.
A few minutes before his speech Saakashvili their rally near the presidential administration made up of 3 thousand Ukrainian doctors, who protested against health care reform, launched by the Minister of health Ulyana Suprun. As you know, on the initiative of Ukraine refused Western medicine and now buys experimental development from India that are banned in the United States and the European Union. While the doctors themselves say about the systematic underfunding of health care, delays in salaries, debts which, according to September data, is of 81.7 million (the average salary of the Ukrainian doctor — 3191 hryvnia) and so on.
However, as he wrote to the Ukrainian media, nothing good this action the country has not brought. The centre of Kiev had to block the streets brought more than a thousand police, as the protesters were driven or power, or for money. Saakashvili also generally prefer to ignore the protesters and their concerns.
Selected Saakashvili strategy “MK” explained Kirill MOLCHANOV, Deputy Director of the Ukrainian Institute of policy analysis and management:
— As the U.S. representative on Ukraine Kurt Volker said earlier about inadmissibility of escalation of the situation in the country, Saakashvili does not want to remain in Kiev, in order not to rock the boat. Instead, he decided to put the regions the backbone of his “new Movement” and search for the financing of it. Parallel to this, Saakashvili will try at least to be legalized in Ukraine — if not through the restoration of citizenship through permanent residency or something like that.
To create the headquarters in Cherkasy Saakashvili decided, because compared to Kiev, there to it will be more difficult to get the head of the interior Ministry Arsen Avakov and Prosecutor General Yury Lutsenko. At the same time is suitable in order to demonstrate to US your peaceful attitude.
— In the river Saakashvili will be able to collect as large a rally as in the winery?
— Of course. First, Ukraine has enough strong protests, and secondly, for million city rally of several thousand people is not something special. Another thing is that being harizmatika and populist Saakashvili has still not been able to use to their advantage the Ukrainian protests.
— Why he did not support the meeting of doctors?
Because Suprun pursues those reforms that Ukraine needs the West. The same Saakashvili did in Georgia and now there all medicine is paid. So he focuses on the fight against corruption and other demagogic themes. Of course, the idea of banning MPs re-elected to Parliament is a progressive and useful for Ukraine, but to bring it to life is impossible, because none of the current MP did vote.
