Supporters of Mikheil Saakashvili, the leader of the Rukh Novykh Syl party, continue blocking the paddy wagon in which the law enforcers are trying to take the politician away.

As reported by a correspondent for Censor. NET from the scene, Saakashvili supporters have constructed an improvised barricade on Triokhsviatytelska Street - a block away from the Maidan Nezalezhnosti square. The roadway is also closed off with a white SUV.
