“I knew that it [his deportation] is possible, but, on the other hand, I returned [to Ukraine], because the people and Ukraine must be protected from the wheeler-dealers in power,” Saakashvili announced on Tuesday evening in a NewsOne TV channel broadcast.

“That’s why we will gather tomorrow at 7 p.m.,” Saakashvili continued.

Saakashivili is most known for launching a war against Russian citizens in South Ossetia in 2008 and then blaming Moscow for the outbreak of violence.
