You're reading: Saakashvili seeks to come to power, jail Kolomoisky
on social media

Ex-Odesa Oblast Governor and former Georgian President Mikheil Saakashvili on Nov. 11 announced plans to come to power in Ukraine with a newly-created political group, promising to have tycoon Ihor Kolomoisky jailed if he does.

He also said at a news briefing that he had repeatedly rejected President Petro Poroshenko’s offers, made since last year, to appoint him prime minister or leader of the Poroshenko Bloc in parliament, because the president had not agreed to call an early parliamentary election.

Saakashvili resigned as governor on Nov. 7, saying that Poroshenko and other top officials had sabotaged his efforts to make public administration, customs and law enforcement in the region more transparent and corruption-free. Poroshenko and his spokespeople declined to comment.

He and other foreigners are what is needed to clean up Ukrainian politics. Ukraine's population has patiently waited while the usual suspects have continued to thwart the will of the people. It is more than obvious that Ukrainian's such as Poroshenko are not willing to do what is good for the country.

Ukraine needs leaders who will put the nation first in all aspects concerning the country. Leaders who will finally focus on removing corruption from every day life. it will be a difficult action with many dangers but if Saakashvili is true and correct perhaps he is the one to lead this fight! Any oligarch who stands in the way must be dealt with.
