Mikhail Saakashvili, who was recently deprived of Georgian citizenship, continues to attack the government of his new homeland – Ukraine. Former President of Georgia, occupying the Governor’s seat in Odessa, again accused the Ukrainian Prime Minister Yatsenyuk of corruption. This was reported by RIA Novosti. 

According to Saakashvili, the shadow scheme at state-run enterprises  causes damage to the figure of five billion dollars annually. 

“Value of lost revenues by the state from certain oligarchic groups alone can be from $5 billion a year”, — Saakashvili said. 

Saakashvili implied that Yatsenyuk and several oligarchs are involved in this, including Igor Kolomoisky and Rinat Akhmetov.  Yatsenyuk, together with President Poroshenko and Saakashvili are once again preparing to meet an expensive overseas guest.  Vice President Joe Biden flew From Washington to Kiev, with the intention to discuss reforms in Ukraine.
