Ukraine: Protesters in Kiev rally in support of deported Saakashvili

Kiev became the scene of clashes between protesters and law enforcement officers on Monday, after the arrest and deportation of former Georgian President and Governor of Odessa Mikheil Saakashvili.

Protesters gathered in front of the Presidential Administration of Ukraine building as they chanted and held banners reading, "Poroshenko release Saakashvili."

Saakashvili was earlier deported from Ukraine to Poland. He was regarded stateless as he had given up his Georgian citizenship to become a Ukrainian citizen. He was later stripped of his Ukrainian passport after having a fallout with the President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko.
