He hasn't been formally charged, but prosecutors say he colluded with Ukrainian businessmen tied to Russian Federation to topple President Petro Poroshenko.

Georgia's former President Mikheil Saakashvili was recaptured by Ukrainian police on Friday, days after supporters managed to free him from police custody in Kiev.

A few hours before he was detained, Mr. Saakashvili had called for weekend protests against Mr. Poroshenko in Independence Square, an area in Kiev known as Maidan that was the center of the earlier demonstrations against Mr. Yanukovych.

His detention was part of an operation "to disrupt a plan of revenge of pro-Kremlin forces in Ukraine", Ukraine's Prosecutor General Yuriy Lutsenko said on Tuesday.

"He (Saakashvili) has to answer to investigators and to society regarding the accusations against him", Poroshenko said.

Saaksahvili became a regional governor in Ukraine at Poroshenko's invitation, But he later turned on his one-time patron, accusing the Ukrainian leader of corruption.

"I assured the President that the IMF stands ready to continue to support Ukraine, along with other global partners, in the fight against corruption and encouraged the authorities to accelerate the implementation of reforms", she said. The 49-year-old is facing the threat of possible extradition to Georgia, where he is wanted on criminal charges he says were trumped up for political reasons. He escaped after his supporters blocked a security service van. Saakashvili denies the allegations against him.
