Ukrainian supporters of former Georgian President Mikheil Saakashvili freed him from a police van on Tuesday after his detention on suspicion of assisting a criminal organisation sparked clashes with police in central Kiev.

Saakashvili noted that he does not intend to run for any position in Ukraine, but urged the citizens come to the center of Kiev on Tuesday evening to speak out against the current government.

“Today you maybe saved me from death, therefore my life belongs to you,” Saakashvili told a crowd at a small makeshift camp outside parliament built by opposition supporters in September.

During his speech, Saakashvili called for the president's impeachment. He took to lashing out at the President, and accused him of “personally supporting” corruption.
