Next, the politician accused the government of provocation near the October Palace and admitted that fell for this provocation and will bear for her political responsibility.
“Your provocation was very simple. Someone from Your surroundings misinformed of my colleagues, in the October Palace gave us several rooms to create a coordinating headquarters for the liberation of volunteers-members of the ATO who were detained during protests near the Parliament. I called people to go to our headquarters. Not storm, not something to break or fight. When I saw that in October we are waiting for the security forces, I have made every effort to avoid collisions. And You hoped they would: as it turned out, the National guard was outside of the Palace an hour before our meeting,” wrote Saakashvili.
