Grytsenko asked Saakashvili’s supporters to understand this step and take into account the situation he was in.
“A personal letter from Saakashvili to the President of Ukraine, his statement on the necessity of negotiations with Poroshenko in the interests of the country, a public appeal to come to another march, in which Poroshenko’s surname isn’t mentioned once, but the criticism is addressed generally to the “power” – these steps of Mikheil came as a surprise for many of his fans, who saw Saakashvili as a powerful battering ram, that would soon push the dealer of Bankova out,” Grytsenko wrote.
“You have to agree, it’s hard for Mikheil, very hard. This is where the breakdowns, and mistakes, and the overstated and inadequate assessments as to the general mood in the country, which Mikheil considers his native now, but objectively he is still far from deeply understanding it,” the politician believes.
As we reported earlier, on December 5, Prosecutor General Yuriy Lutsenko announced that the protests organized by Saakashvili had been financed by allies of ex-President Yanukovych. As proof, he made public the audio file, in which Saakashvili’s aide is talking to a trustee of oligarch Serhiy Kurchenko. Saakashvili called these accusations 'fake'.
Pechersk Court of Kyiv refused the Prosecutor General’s Office to choose the home arrest as the restriction measure for Mikheil Saakashvili. Now the prosecution expects Saakashvili to come in for questioning on Dec. 18.
