Supporters of the former President of Georgia, Mikhail Saakashvili, have freed him from police custody in the Ukrainian capital, Kiev.
Saakashvili had earlier threatened to throw himself off the roof of the residential building where he lives, after police arrived to search his apartment.
Madina Kochenova has been following events.
Martin McCauley, Russia analyst and historian, believes it’s difficult to take Saakashvili seriously, given his political legacy.
