Mikheil Saakashvili spends night in tent camp outside Ukrainian parliament

Mikheil Saakashvili, former Georgian President turned fiery Ukrainian oppositionist who leads the Rukh Novikh Sil movement, spent the night in the protesters' tent camp opposite the Verkhovna Rada national parliament, Vestnik Kavkaza reports.

Saakashvili said yesterday that he was planning to stay in one of the tents, for the purposes of which he had taken some warm clothes along with him.

He said Ukraine’s unicameral parliament will begin its weekly plenary session on November 7, during which it will have an opportunity to pass bills demanded by Saakashvili and his supporters. The protesters demand to strip Rada deputies of their parliamentary immunity, amend the election laws, and set up an anticorruption tribunal.

Saakashvili said that if those bills are passed, the protestors will withdraw from Kiev’s governmental district. "People are waiting for November 7. The president has made his promise, the parliament has made its promise. If they fulfill them, people will leave," TASS cited him as saying, media say.
