In turn, Saakashvili said that this "is contrary to European law," and he intends to contact the local police. The politician also asked journalists not to disperse.

Saakashvili himself at that time was in the United States. Later, he repeatedly stated his intention to return to Ukraine on September 10 in order to continue the fight against Poroshenko.
