The results of Mikheil Saakashvili's work as the head of Odesa Regional State Administration are modest. This was stated by himself during the interview in Odessa, which was broadcasted by "112 Ukraine".
"I will say straight. The results of my work are very, very modest. The main reason why I am leaving - it's frustration from the fact that we could not do more for you. When we started to develop Batumi, it was a village. Everyone knows Odesa. My heart bleeds when young people leave Odesa.
Nobody for all time did make such promotion to Odesa in the world press, as I did. Journalists wrote bad things about Ukraine before. There were no bad articles about Odesa, except articles about "Trukhanov's mafia", - the head of the region said.
Today Poroshenko during a visit to Slovenia, expressed the hope that the Government will support Saakashvili's resignation. "I hope tomorrow the government will support his decision to resign from the post of head of the regional state administration, if he decided to engage in political activity", - said the president.
