«Then Saakashvili carried on the wings of success if you violate the rules for everyone. If you can break through the border, why can not break through to the Verkhovna Rada? Why not require a completely illegal action on the streets? Saakashvili put himself above the law,» – said the Prosecutor General.

Right hand Kurchenko and the right hand of Saakashvili started to negotiate about the political and financial cooperation. At one point, and Saakashvili himself called Kurchenko. All this I showed to Parliament,» he said.
