Mikheil Saakashvili writes letter to his supporters after arrest

Former Georgian President Mikheil Saakashvili, arrested by Georgian authorities yesterday, has written a letter to his supporters, Qazet.az informs.

“When I left Kyiv and came here, I knew that I would most likely be arrested, with fabricated, false verdicts which were issued by order of Putin. No country in the world except Russia recognizes this sentence but I still came because I believe in my country and every single one of you. I want to ask you all to go to the elections so that not a single vote is lost, and after that, we will have to defend the results of the referendum together.

My freedom and, more importantly, the freedom of Georgia depends entirely on your actions and fighting ability. International support also depends on this. Please do not hold back and believe that our victory is in our hands, I love you, your loyal Mikheil Saakashvili,” Saakashvili said in the letter.
