Ukraine: Police clash with protesters over Saakashvili

Ukraine

Second arrest try fails in Ukraine

The vote Thursday comes after this week's attempts to arrest former Georgian president Mikheil Saakashvili, who has become a high-profile anti-corruption campaigner in Ukraine. Saakashvili supporters freed him from a police van after he was detained on Tuesday.

In a televised briefing on Wednesday, Saakashvili - supporters see him as a fearless crusader against corruption - said he would not present himself to law enforcement officials, as requested by the General Prosecutor's office.

"I am prepared to meet an investigator of the prosecutor in the tent city", he said.

Congressman Trent Franks resigns
Franks is a conservative member of the House Freedom Caucus who has made his crusade against abortion a cornerstone of his career. Democratic Representative John Conyers of MI resigned on Tuesday after accusations of sexual harassment were leveled against him.

"They burst into the tent and started beating everyone with their hands and batons", said Ognyov, whose head was bandaged and his face covered with blood.

Protesters defended the camp, which was set up in September, leading to clashes in which four policemen and an unknown number of civilians were wounded, Kiev police said in a statement.

The efforts to detain Saakashvili have raised fears that Ukraine could be facing its most acute political crisis since the 2014 revolution.

Poroshenko named Saakashvili as governor of the Odessa region in 2015, but he stepped down the following year after falling out with the president. Saakashvili and his supporters camped out outside parliament, demanding the resignation of the Ukrainian president.

Saakashvili rejected the accusations and said there has always been hostility between him and Russian President Vladimir Putin.
