Saakashvili: Ukrainian Government Must Heed Our Demands

Hundreds of protesters joined a rally organized outside the Ukrainian parliament in Kyiv on October 29 by the New Forces Movement, a novice political group led by Mikheil Saakashvili. The former Georgian president and ex-governor of Ukraine's Odesa Oblast was stripped of Ukrainian citizenship in June 2017 in a move he is currently challenging in court. Saakashvili urged demonstrators to put together a list of demands and called on the Ukrainian government to meet them by November 7. (RFE/RL's Ukrainian Service)
