Saakashvili: will there be more?
24 December 2017 18: 49
No wonder they say that each of us makes money as he can. On Wednesday, 50 years was one of the most discussed politicians in the world. The person without citizenship, the leader of the “Rose Revolution”, the ex-President of Georgia, former Governor of the Odessa region, and now – the main troublemaker in Kiev, the ideological inspirer of Mihaita – Mikhail Saakashvili. In his birthday he kept Mat pause to the last, — by assigning a briefing for journalists. And promised an exclusive interview. But … gone. Promising to return. From the Netherlands, where he went for the holidays, in order to spend them next to his family. And then to break with the fighting back in the Ukraine, where Mikhail Nikolozovich as you know, not the entry. Saakashvili has long been called a political project. However, analysts speculated on who pays the Piper calls the tune? My colleague Anatoly Zankovich tried to understand. Natural camp near the Parliament resembles a Ukrainian village in winter. The smoke from the chimneys, the lads chopping wood, but instead huts and huts – tents. Military. This is a protest against the government. Grandfather Andrew came from Chernigov. With a pension of two thousand hryvnia (130 Belarusian rubles) it is a shame – I worked all my life and that’s you. He doesn’t want to live that way, so he protests. Like a few hundred other people in the camp. Here and pensioners, and girls, but the main people are those who have recently fought in the South-East of the country. They say don’t go on until victory. They are deputies. Although the protesters have a claim to all representatives at least some power. And the President, and the Prosecutor, and Parliament. The economy is stagnating, prices are rising. And in a military tent for a Cup of tea is the men’s conversation. On souls. The protest United people of different views. Even stingy on the words, but the harsh “Right sector” the conversation takes readily boiling. Four years ago, they were given hope for a better life. On Christmas and New year’s eve it seemed like a magical gift. However, the price was very high. Exactly four years ago, on December 22, a week before the new year, here, on the Maidan, a historic decision was made to create a public organization “people’s movement Maidan”. And on the same day, December 22, the first victim of the revolution appears. Software engineer Pavel Mazurenko was the first who died in the name of the revolution and the first in the list of “heavenly hundred”. How many more died in the Donbass, how many became refugees, and who just broken life – experts say that the bill has already gone to millions. And because the ratings of politicians as ever over the past five years low. President Poroshenko is losing credibility, Yulia Tymoshenko dials, surprised Stanislav Vakarchuk (the soloist of the “Okean Elzy”). But in this list there is no one who rushed into the political life of Ukraine in the autumn of this year. The political life of Mikhail Saakashvili was always full of twists and turns. He was the President of Georgia, and now the Transcaucasian country is trying to extradite him – four criminal cases. He found a common language with Petro Poroshenko (which, however, is not surprising, in his youth they studied together at the Kiev state University, and ex-President Yushchenko – baptized son Saakashvili). Poroshenko was entrusted to the former Georgian President the office of the Odessa region. But soon he also deprived Saakashvili of Ukrainian citizenship. But it doesn’t prevent the former Governor to break through border, to organize people and to expose pickets near the Verkhovna Rada. Half the protesters from the tents are for him. There is a reasonable question: where is the legal system of Ukraine? Where is law and order? Is a breakthrough of the state border is not a violation? Isn’t the storming of the October Palace in Kiev a call for a coup d’état? Finally, in what other country can you behave unceremoniously in the Prosecutor’s office? Why it happens and why Saakashvili gets away with it. Undoubtedly, the matter is in imperfect (and maybe too democratic) Ukrainian laws. And it should be remembered that the politician has legal education and diplomas from seven international universities. Therefore, in the free interpretation of laws, appeals, postponements, inconsistencies and delays, Saakashvili feels like a fish in the water. And his lawyer confirms that the laws are imperfect. Especially in this country. Ruslan Chernolutsky, lawyer of Mikheil Saakashvili: “we are definitely confident in our abilities, we are definitely confident in the correctness of the law, which is on our side. But, unfortunately, today we cannot talk about the independence of the judicial system. And, unfortunately, we cannot talk about the independence of the law enforcement system.” To clarify the situation in detail, we agreed to meet with Mikhail Saakashvili. We have received consent, came to Kiev to ask quite specific, and maybe uncomfortable questions. But meeting didn’t happen. Kostelnaya street, house 7. It is at this address that the Prosecutor General’s office of Ukraine and the Security Council send subpoenas to Mikhail Saakashvili, who lives in this house. We live in the house opposite, three days trying to get a meeting with him, but the Georgian politician does not get in touch. From the roof of the house, Saakashvili threatened to be discharged, when the explanation came in the form of people. Security forces withdrew, still, it is not Carlson. There was no fall, but his political HYIP politician achieved. So what is more: a real desire to help the country and the people, or just to achieve political power? Scholars of Ukraine explained simply. Anatoly Peshko, Vice-President of the Academy of economic Sciences of Ukraine: “this is a swindler and adventurer. The role of Saakashvili – the role of the detonator, which the US is trying to Poroshenko resigned.” One more key figure in this history – the Deputy of the Verkhovna Rada Yury Derevyanko. He wore transmission Saakashvili, when he threatened a hunger strike in jail. And he initiated the draft law on impeachment to the President of Ukraine. No,not for the post of former President of Georgia. Just here the law clearly established restrictions – only Ukrainians by birth and citizenship. If so, what then Saakashvili needs? Yuriy Derevyanko, Deputy of the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine: “He is ready to take the post of Prime Minister of Ukraine. And this is what the laws and the Constitution of Ukraine can do.” If this happens, the experts warn: the audience will see the second series of an exciting film. When Ukraine can turn from a presidential Republic into a parliamentary one. And the meeting of Parliament has always been a fascinating Thriller. Another serious point in the history of Mikhail Saakashvili is money. To organize supporters, to create a party, to ensure interest in yourself-it needs a decent amount. Saakashvili is accused of collusion with all: Russian oligarchs, local big business and even reproach in injections from overseas. But estimates and checks while nobody saw, considering resourcefulness of the politician, it is possible even not to doubt, as he will find a way out of this situation. Although Ukraine is now concerned about others. There would be no new Maidan. And in 2004, and in 2014 it all started with the usual protests. Ended not very. Anatoly Peshko, Vice-President of the Academy of economic Sciences of Ukraine: “do not think that if it started in Ukraine, it will not affect Belarus or Russia. According to all data, it is clear that similar coups are being prepared. They are preparing in Belarus and Russia. You have to be very careful not to be influenced by these people.” The stateless person, that is the stateless person, Mikheil Saakashvili doesn’t lose heart. First, he was given a Dutch visa to reunite with his family. Second, to extradite him nowhere: what country, what documents? Finally, he himself reduced the degree of conflict with Petro Poroshenko by writing him a letter. Ahead of the parliamentary elections, a year or so – presidential. It seems that the political forces will agree not to overdo it, even in Ukraine. Only here’s how to explain it to people who and Christmas and New year will not meet in warm offices, and in tents in the cold.
