  • SSU who escorted Saakashvili had the right to open fire - Lutsenko

Kyiv: Attorney General of Ukraine Yuriy Lutsenko said that officers of the Security Service during the escorting of the former head of the Odessa Regional State Administration Mikheil Saakashvili had the right to open fire for defeat.

"We could be more effective. Those 12 employees of the Security Service of Ukraine, who drove Saakashvili for interrogation yesterday, all - participants of the ATO, who had been fighting, by law had to open fire for defeat. But we are thinking about the state, and Saakashvili, hiding behind Ukrainians, deceived and bought for money by Kurchenko, thinks about the shock of this state, about his personal comfort. Therefore, we will continue to think about the state, sometimes even without using all the rights granted to us. But Saakashvili will be detained, "Lutsenko said.

Also, Lutsenko again urged Saakashvili to appear in the building of the SSU for testimony.

"The best thing he can do if he is at least a man, if he really loves Ukraine as much as he says about it, come to Vladimirskaya Street today to testify to the investigator. This is the only way to not destroy Ukraine, as it does for the stolen money of Yanukovych, "stressed Lutsenko.

In the morning, December 5, SSU officers began searches in the apartment of the former head of the Odessa Regional State Administration Saakashvili. Saakashvili was detained, but activists and supporters of the former head of the Odessa regional administration blocked the car with Saakashvili and did not allow law enforcement officers to deliver him to law enforcement agencies. Subsequently, Saakashvili still released from the car of the SSU.

The Security Service of Ukraine confirmed the detention of the former chairman of the Odessa Administration Mikheil Saakashvili, noting that he was detained in the criminal proceedings under Part 1 of Article 256 of the UCU (Assistance to participants of criminal organizations and concealment of their criminal activities).

Prosecutor General of Ukraine Yuriy Lutsenko said that the protests of the former head of the Odessa Administration Mikheil Saakashvili were financed by the criminal group Yanukovych-Kurchenko, and the purpose of these actions was the seizure of state power in Ukraine and the revenge of the pro-Kremlin forces. According to Lutsenko, Saakashvili received about half a million dollars from Kurchenka.

Prosecutor General of Ukraine Yuriy Lutsenko said that the next day the ex-head of the Odessa Administration Mikheil Saakashvili will get suspicious and appear before the court, at the same time Lutsenko urged Saakashvili to come to the SSU investigator on December 6 voluntarily to receive suspicion.

Also, the General Prosecutor's Office of Ukraine handed over to the police the decision to search for ex-President Saakashvili.

Saakashvili's lawyer Pavel Bogomazov told Front News International that the former Georgian President Saakashvili did not have the status of a suspect, so that he was put on the wanted list, moreover, he is not hiding anywhere.

Saakashvili himself called for the impeachment of Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko, the resignation of Prosecutor General Yuriy Lutsenko, as well as the "removal from power" of the MP of the faction of the BCP Igor Kononenko.
