The former Georgian president, who became a Ukrainian oppositionist, Mikheil Saakashvili was offended that he was called a drug addict and stated that he does not use banned drugs.

According to the politician, he was accused of drug addiction by the drunken chief of the Shevchenkovsky district police department of Kiev.

“We had a verbal skirmish, he simply stinks of alcohol and even shakes, and also calls me a drug addict. This is purely a Russian thing, Russian propaganda. Russians always say that Saakashvili is a drug addict. He simply repeats Russian cliche,” Saakashvili said.
