Former Georgian President Breaks Through Ukrainian Checkpoint After He Was Refused Entry by Train
A train carrying former Georgian presidentMikheil Saakashvili and his supporters was prevented from leaving a railway station in Poland for Ukraine on Sunday, deepening a standoff between Saakashvili and the Ukrainian authorities.
However, Saakashvilisaid in August that he is going to come back to Ukraine from Poland on September 10, 2017. Party in the bus, he then opted for the train, then returned to the bus to eventually make it to the post of Medyka, where the border guard Polish let it pass, aim where he found himself facing a barrage of men in uniform Ukrainian and cars.
But Saakashvili, surrounded by a crowd of supporters, broke through the line before proceeding toward the small town of Shehyni on foot amid shouts of "victory" and "glory to Ukraine".
Saakashvili, who studied in Ukraine and speaks fluent Ukrainian, received Ukrainian citizenship in 2015 from Poroshenko when the president made him governor of Odessa.
Speaking at a news conference in the western city of Lviv on Monday, Mr Saakashvili insisted he aimed to restore his Ukrainian citizenship and get back into politics.
However, the two men fell out, and Saakashvili resigned in November 2016, blaming Poroshenko for corruption in the country and stating that he meant to form his own political movement.
Georgia, where he faces accusations of abuse of power and misappropriation of property, has sent an extradition request for him to Ukraine.

Saakashvili has said the allegations against him in Georgia are politically motivated.
Now he is in Lviv and reportedly plans to travel to Kiev.
"I want to thank everyone, all our heroes, all those people, all the veterans, all the lawmakers who have helped us", Saakashvili said after crossing.
His supporters at the border crossing on Sunday claimed he had the ability to deal with Ukraine's corruption, overcome its oligarchy and end Ukraine's three-year eastern border region war with Russian Federation.
"I am not afraid". "There are children here, there are ordinary Ukrainian citizens who want to get home". He reportedly met Lviv Mayor Andriy Sadovyi late Sunday night.
Saakashvili took power in Georgia after a peaceful pro-Western uprising, known as the Rose Revolution, in 2003. Government officials at the border said 17 police and guards were injured during the confrontation with Saakashvili's supporters.
