Recall that earlier a criminal case was initiated against Saakashvili with the wording “preparation for a state insurrection and a change of state power”.
Saakashvili’s supporters, including many who stood on the Independence Square in 2013-2014, now remembered that Mikhail Saakashvili’s main opponent, Petro Poroshenko, himself came to power after a rebellion and a coup. But what about the “revolution of dignity”, which was called the very unconstitutional coup d'etat of February 2014 sample? Apparently, now the wording and interpretation of events will have to be changed by the Ukrainians themselves.
Immediately after the start of the court session, the former head of the Odessa region declared a hunger strike, making a pathetic statement:
I showed how the president can work, and now I will show how I can die.
While in the courthouse in a special compartment behind armored glass, Saakashvili called himself a prisoner of war.
