Law enforcement officials have broken the door to Saakashvili’s apartment, according to local media. Security forces are currently searching the flat in the center of the Ukrainian capital, while the former president of Georgia and ex-governor of Ukraine’s Odessa Region confined himself to the roof of the building, threatening to jump off.
Saakashvili entered Ukraine in September, despite being stripped of citizenship. He was found guilty of illegally crossing the border. His native Georgia is also demanding his extradition on charges of corruption.
