Ex-president of Georgia, former Odesa governor Mikheil Saakashvili informed about his intentions to hold a joint speech with civic activists on three demands, which are to be phrased in Kyiv on October 17. Saakshbili wrote this on his Facebook.

“We decided to join in the initiative of civic activists and gather in Kyiv on October 17 with three demands: create anti-corruption courts, cancel immunity for MPs, adopt a new elective law. And we will collect other demands all over Ukraine before the 17th,” he wrote.

Previously Mikheil Saakashvili said he was coming to Kyiv on September 19, to “save the city”. Before that, the former Georgian leader illegally crossed the Ukrainian border via Shegyni checkpoint, breaking the law due to incorrect completion of border crossing procedure.

The crowd of at least 60 people, including five MPs, literally carried Saakashvili beyond the checkpoint, getting into a fight with law enforcers. The police and the state security service investigate the incident. 

However, Ukraine's Prosecutor General said Saakashvili won't be deported or arrested.
