Georgia's ex-president sings Ukrainian and Georgian anthems in courtroom
Georgia's ex-president Mikheil Saakashvili sang Ukrainian and Georgian anthems in the courtroom and said he considers himself a prisoner of the oligarchic regime.

Judge Larisa Tsokol announced a break at the trial to let Saakashvili make comments for the press.

The Prosecutor's Office demands two-month house arrest for Mikheil Saakashvili. Police are mobilized at the entrance to the building of the court.

"Saakashvili does not plead guilty. This is a fabricated case. In our opinion, the case is politically motivated.
Mikheil Saakashvili feels good, even though he has been on hunger strike for two days. He drinks only water," said lawyer Pavel Bogomazov.
