Saakashvili calls for new rally near Ukrainian parliament

The leader of the Movement of New Forces, former Georgian president Mikheil Saakashvili is going to have another rally in front of the Ukrainian Supreme Rada on Oct 25. He announced the intention on air of a Ukrainian TV channel.

He said he knew he could be arrested, however, he still intended to hold the protest action.

“I knew they could do this to me, but on the other side, I did come, because I cannot give the people to those hucksters. So, we shall meet at the square,” he is quoted as saying by the Federal News Agency.

As Saakashvili noted, on Nov 7, the Ukrainian parliament will meet for a new plenary week, and the MPs could discuss the bills the protesters want to be passed. If they are adopted, Saakashvili promises to take the people from the street.

As EAD reported earlier, after it was reported that Saakashvili could be deported from Ukraine, he said he planned to move to a tent camp near the Supreme Rada. Last night, he arrived to the camp and gave a short briefing.

He said he would live in a tent with the protesters, so he took warm clothes with him. He promised that the leader of the Civil Position Party Anatoliy Hrytsenko and Lvov Mayor Andriy Sadovyi would join him to discuss further actions.
