Supporters of Mikheil Saakashvili, the former Georgian president and ex-governor of Ukraine's Odesa Oblast, managed to get him through a Polish-Ukrainian border crossing near the village of Shehyni in Ukraine late on September 10. Ukrainian authorities had previously stopped him from entering the country by train earlier that day. RFE/RL footage shows dozens of Saakashvili's supporters scuffling with Ukrainian security forces and eventually breaking through their cordon. After entering Ukrainian territory, they march onward, singing the Ukrainian national anthem.(RFE/RL's Ukrainian Service)
