People broke through the checkpoint Medyka-Shegyni on Ukrainian-Polish border, a fight with the border guards began. This was reported by the Press Secretary of the State Border Service Oleh Slobodyan in Facebook.
"The crowd broke through the checkpoint Shegyni. The fight started...," he wrote.
He also noted that at the moment it is difficult to predict the consequences.
Ex-president of Georgia and former head of the Odesa Regional State Administration Mikheil Saakashvili arrived in Ukraine. He crossed the border at the checkpoint Shegyni. This was reported on Facebook by Radio Liberty journalist Andriy Dubchak.
Saakashvili literally broke into Ukraine, because the crowd that gathered at the checkpoint broke through the border from the Ukrainian side and made a fight with the border guards who were in the transit zone.
Today Mikheil Saakashvili is trying to cross the border of Ukraine. Initially, it was planned that he would cross the border through the checkpoint Krakowiec. There was a lot of his supporters, and there was even a fight with the police. As a result of the riots, more than one hundred people were detained. Considering all this, the party decided that Saakashvili would go to Ukraine by train from Przemysl.
However, the train was delayed, as reported in the "Ukrzaliznytsya" because of a man who has no reason to enter Ukraine. It was, apparently, Mikheil Saakashvili.
As a result, the passengers of the train, and with them Saakashvili, were taken to the bus and headed to the Shegyni checkpoint where many people have already gathered to support Saakashvili.
