Leader of Rukh Novykh Syl party, former Odesa governor and ex-president of Georgia Mikheil Saakashvili says he is going to visit all regions of Ukraine.

As reported by Censor.NET citing ZN.UA, he told a briefing in Lviv.

"I am going to travel to all regions of Ukraine, have maximum cooperation with individuals and various political parties around one common topic: we should have democracy in this country, and there should be no dictatorship and oligarchs," he said.

As reported, Saakashvili decided to enter Ukraine on Sept. 10 by train to avoid turmoil at Krakovets border crossing point. Intercity train from Przemysl to Kyiv was supposed to leave at 1:07 p.m. yesterday but was delayed for several hours. Some sources reported the train was delayed by law enforcers, but police soon disproved the reports. In its turn, Ukraine's major railway carrier Ukrzaliznytsia explained the delay in schedule by presence of a person on board who had no grounds to enter Ukraine.

Saakashvili subsequently arrived at Shehyni border crossing point where his supporters breached across the Ukrainian border and brought the politician and his delegation onto territory of Ukraine.
