 "This is pure political provocation!" - Saakashvili commented about raid on his adviser

Odesa region governor Mikheil Saakashvili has commented on the search of his adviser's office, calling it a politically motivated order by certain representatives of Ukraine's Prosecutor General's Office.

Censor.NET reports referring to journalist Roman Bochkala's Facebook.

"I had to break the door open because they held our people closed and without lawyers in violation of all laws. It's a pure political provocation ordered by this bastard from the PGO to these guys [SBU officers - ed.] who I'm sorry for," Saakashvili said.

"Arn't you ashamed to come here with guns in a country at war? Go to the front if you want to..," the governor said to security officers.

As previously reported by Dumskaia newspaper, PGO's investigators and SBU Kyiv Directorate's officers raided the office and house of former Consul General of Georgia in Ukraine Teimuraz Nishnianidze, who is current assistant-adviser to the governor of the Odesa region. The office is also the place of registration of the Foundation "For benefit of Odesa" (premises of the business center on Uspinska Street).

According to newspaper's law enforcement sources, the investigation is carried out under several criminal proceedings.
