Former Odesa Regional Governor Mikheil Saakashvili has stated that he is not planning to unite with any political forces, even with former Prime Minister Yulia Tymoshenko.

He said this at a briefing at the Leopolis Hotel in Lviv on Tuesday, an Ukrinform correspondent reports.

"I will not unite with Tymoshenko or with other political forces. [I will unite] only with the people," Saakashvili said.

In addition, he again confirmed his intention to make an all-Ukrainian tour of the cities and villages of the country - up to Kyiv.

"Today or tomorrow I will go on an all-Ukrainian political tour. I intend to visit such major industrial centers as Kharkiv, Dnipro, Odesa, as well as villages. I will gather the demands of the people to the oligarchs, and with these demands I will come to Kyiv," Saakashvili said.

On September 12, Saakashvili was familiarized with a protocol on rights and administrative violations.

On September 10, Saakashvili arrived in Ukraine, practically carrying out, along with several people's deputies, a breakthrough of the state border at the Shehyni checkpoint. 

The National Police opened criminal proceedings on Saakashvili and MPs breaking through the state border under two articles - illegal transfer across the state border of Ukraine and resistance to law enforcement officers.
