13 December, 2017
Former President of Georgia and former Governor of Odessa district Mikheil Saakashvili said on TV channel Zik that President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko had offered him the Prime Minister’s post.

"Poroshenko had always been hinting to Yatsenyuk that I am the next Prime Minister. When I learned about it, I asked him if it was right and he told me: Why not? I replied: "No!" Saakashvili said.

He also expressed readiness to become the Prime Minister of Ukraine and noted
that he has no presidential ambitions.

"I am ready to undertake responsibility for the normal government of Ukraine. I will never run for presidency. In my opinion, the President of Ukraine should be Ukrainian who was born and grew up here," said the ex-President.
