Head of Odesa Regional State Administration (RSA) Mikheil Saakashvili spoke against the appointment of foreign citizens for management of Ukrainian customs in the air of 112 Ukraine.

"I do not think that Ukrainian customs should be managed by foreigners. I am categorically against the fact that we will bring the Brits or Americans. Again, it palms the government off…“In six months we will bring the Brits". This is nonsense! It need to be Ukrainians but the system must be changed. And the system is to transfer all to computer programs or software, so the computer, not customs officer, is to decide," Saakashvili said.
