Mikhail Saakashvili has always shared the European aspirations of Ukraine
Former Georgian President Mikhail Saakashvili is planning to participate in the contest for the post of the Director of the Anti-Corruption Bureau of Ukraine.

According to experts of a weekly newspaper "Krayina", his candidacy is lobbied by the Ukrainian president Petro Poroshenko, who said that President Saakashvili is not affiliated with any interest group in Ukraine.

There a minus in the absence of such relationships. If Mikhail Saakashvili is chosen for the position, he will not have his team which he could rely in fighting corruption in Ukraine.

If Saakashvili shows himself as effective fighter against corruption in Ukraine, he will increase his chances to return to Georgian politics.
