The Prosecutor General's Office of Ukraine does not suspect Mikheil Saakashvili in organizing a coup for the money of Sergey Kurchenko, Prosecutor General Yuri Lutsenko told Ukrainian ZIK television channel, answering a question on whether there was another charge against Saakashvili rather than organizing a coup for the money of Kurchenko and the FSB, when investigators came to Saakashvili’s home on Kostelna Street in Kiev.

"We do not suspect Mikheil Saakashvili. We suspect his right-hand man Severion Dangadze in attempting to stage a coup and finance such an attempt. We suspect Saakashvili only in assisting members of the criminal group Kurchenko-Yanukovych," explained Lutsenko.

According to the Prosecutor General, Mikhail Saakashvili was detained by SBU officers, as they are conducting an investigation.

"The investigation into this case is conducted by the SBU. Therefore, investigators of the service came to detain the man and take him for investigation. In fact, he refused, having escaped from the car. After that, he was hiding in various places and was detained by the national police, after being put on the wanted list," Lutsenko summed up.

This statement indicates that the Prosecutor General's Office is forced to backtrack after it was found that the "evidence base" against Saakashvili is fabricated. Earlier, Lutsenko directly accused the rebellious Odessa ex-governor of an attempt to overthrow the legitimate authorities in the interests and money of the "Yanukovych’s clique" under the auspices of the FSB.

As EADaily reported, on the basis of these charges, Saakashvili was detained on December 8 and placed in the remand center. However, on December 11, the Pechersky District Court of Kiev ruled to release him.
