theguardian.com – Former Georgian president Saakashvili is detained in Ukraine. Crowds of supporters demonstrate as anti-corruption campaigner is taken away by police from his home in Kiev – Associated Press in Moscow

Ukrainian police have detained the former president of Georgia, who has emerged as an anti-corruption campaigner in his new country.

As police arrived to detain Mikheil Saakashvili at his home in Kiev on Tuesday morning he went up on the roof to protest, attracting a crowd of supporters downstairs. Footage from the scene showed Saakashvili being taken away while several hundred protesters were blocking the road.

Saakashvili left Georgia in 2013 after serving as president for nearly a decade, and later was appointed governor of Ukraine’s Odessa region. But he quit in 2016, complaining that his efforts to root out corruption were suffering from official obstruction.

His Ukrainian citizenship was revoked this year while he was out of the country, but he returned in September after supporters broke through a police line at the Polish border.

More details soon …
