Deprivation of citizenship of Ukraine, the former President of Georgia and head of the Odessa regional state administration Mikhail Saakashvili was a mistake, and an intelligent act on the part of the President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko would be to immediately reverse this decision. This opinion was expressed by Russian opposition leader and political analyst Konstantin Borovoy in Facebook.
«The result of this bug opposite of the intended enemies of Saakashvili. Mikhail Saakashvili has gradually become the center and leader of the opposition to the corrupt and decadent government in Ukraine. Poroshenko has already realized that he made a tragic mistake for yourself, but hopes to be able to push, to insist on such a solution. Attempt to close the border for one person – funny and pointless game,» he said.
According to political experts, the confrontation with Saakashvili gradually develops into a conflict with civil society.
«No alternative final of this conflict is obvious – resignation. The resignation of the shameful criminal prosecution for the committed crimes against the state or the resignation of the honorable leader, aware of his inability to meet the current challenges of the country and the government,» he said.
Borovoy added that the Russian propaganda is actively involved in protecting Poroshenko from Saakashvili.
«This alone ought to convince the President of Ukraine that he is doing something wrong. But no. He wants to win the fight. In the fight, where the chance of a decent retreat are shrinking with each passing day,» he concluded.
