Ex-president of Georgia Mikheil Saakashvili believes it is Russia's President who is interested in questioning him.

Saakashvili has been summoned to be questioned as a witness in about ten cases by the Georgian prosecution. Among them are several cases connected with Georgian TV companies, embezzlement of public money and cases relating to the murder of Girgvliani and the unexplained death of ex-Prime Minister Zurab Zhvania.

Saakasvhili, who left the country in November, said Putin was "fed up” with him.

"Since I practically set up a campaign to support Ukraine. If Putin does believe that I will go and surrender and won't continue my movements, this is great stupidity," Saakashvili said to journalists today in Holland.

He said he planned to continue to support Georgia’s struggle for freedom and freedom of the entire region "as a free man”.

"Nobody can restrict my movements. I won't come back to Georgia and make Putin's dream come true but I will arrive to free the country from people performing Putin's tasks,” Saakashvili said.

"This time will come much sooner than Ivanishvili thinks it would - the Russian oligarch who was given two billion to perform this task in 2012. Undoubtedly, this is organized by him.

"More than this, at some time Europeans warned me that he left his position in order to perform his task in the shadows as if he was not involved at all," Saakashvili stated, and said everyone in Georgia knew the Georgian Government was run by "completely worthless people”.

"Finally they are not making any decision. Nor Ivanishvili will take any in the end. The decision is made by the person who gave him those two billion. These are temporary difficulties for Georgia," the ex-President believed.

Saakashvili claimed he would continue struggling but would not take part in "Ivanishvili-Putin games”. He said he would visit Ivanishvili but only when he found it necessary and with another mission.

"Nothing can stop me despite my physical liquidation," he stated.

Saakasvhili is anticipated to appear at the Chief Prosecutor's Office to be questioned as a witness on March 27 at 13 pm. It is unknown whether he will return to Georgia for questioning or not.
