Khaki-Clad Men, Topless Woman Arrested Ahead Of Saakashvili's Border Crossing Attempt

Ukrainian police arrested a topless woman protester affiliated with the Ukrainian feminist group Femen at Ukraine's Krakovets border checkpoint on September 10. The seminaked protest against "fools without borders" took place as supporters of Mikheil Saakashvili, the former Georgian President and ex-governor of Ukraine's Odesa Oblast, gathered at the border crossing in anticipation of his attempt to enter Ukraine from Poland despite the fact that he has been stripped of his Ukrainian citizenship. Ukrainian police said they had also arrested a group of more than 100 young men wearing camouflage clothing who arrived at the border on foot. (RFE/RL's Ukrainian Service, natural sound)
