Mikheil Saakashvili, the former Georgian president and former governor of Ukraine’s Odessa region, was pushed through a Polish-Ukrainian border in Ukraine on Sunday, September 10. Saakashvili was blocked from entering and protesters were arrested. Saakashvili is an outspoken critic of President Petro Poroshenko, who quit his governorship in November 2016 citing corruption and a lack of action by Poroshenko’s administration to tackle it. Saakashvili was stripped of his citizenship in July. He had promised to return but his train, operated by a state body, never left the station. Credit: Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty via Storyful
