Ukraine: Protesters in Kiev rally in support of deported Saakashvili
 
 
Islam Times - Kiev became the scene of clashes between protesters and law enforcement officers on Monday, after the arrest and deportation of former Georgian President and Governor of Odessa Mikheil Saakashvili.
 
Saakashvili was earlier deported from Ukraine to Poland. He was regarded stateless as he had given up his Georgian citizenship to become a Ukrainian citizen. He was later stripped of his Ukrainian passport after having a fallout with the President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko.

 
CCTV released by Saakashvili's press service appeared to show the moment he was detained at the Suluguni restaurant.
