And now you thrown in jail his opponents as Yanukovych did. Remember how it ended. Rostov not the rubber. I understand that Mikhail Saakashvili did not put the attorney General, not the court, not any other law enforcement Agency. He was put specifically to you. That is why I address specifically to you: immediately cancel all of your team. Do not disgrace Ukraine in the eyes of the world and its own people. Release Saakashvili”, — Tymoshenko wrote in a Saturday Facebook.
