kiev - Thousands of people have demonstrated in the capital of Ukraine, Kiev, against the detention of former Georgian president Mikhail Saakashvili. 'Many people want change. That is more difficult to realize if Michail is not among us ', said his Dutch wife, Sandra Roelofs, in a speech.
The authorities arrested Saakashvili Friday in Kiev. The former governor of the Ukrainian region of Odessa blames the government for large-scale corruption. Justice accuses the stateless politician of supporting a criminal organization. Saakashvili received the Ukrainian nationality as a gift, but he has taken it again.
