Georgian former President Mikhail Saakashvili, an opponent of Ukrainian power, was released this Tuesday shortly after his arrest by police in Kiev, while hundreds of his supporters blocked van in which agents transported him.
Saakashvili came out of police vehicle and headed for Parliament in company of his supporters, a journalist from AFP checked.
The crowd surrounding van prevented him from finding out wher his release was result of an intervention by his followers or wher police gave in to crowd.
"I call on everyone to come to Ukrainian parliament to demand resignation of president" Ukrainian Petro Poroshenko, Saakashvili said.
The former Georgian president, a fierce opponent of President Petro Poroshenko, who withdrew his Ukrainian nationality, had been detained hours earlier after a record at his home in Kiev.
The police accuse him of "complicity with a criminal gang" in a case that, according to Saakashvili, is a hatched invention by President Poroshenko.
Saakashvili is suspected of trying to "conquer power by force" during anti-corruption demonstrations, said attorney General Yuri Lutsenko, who also accused opponent of receiving funding from former Ukrainian president pro-russian Víctor Yanukovych, which yielded power in 2014 following pro-european demonstrations of Maidan in Kiev.
