Saakashvili believed that none of the Georgian media workers had done anything illegal, and assessed the incident as a provocation.
"It was surely a provocation, and I don't think it was conducted by the order of some political party. I know that outside Ukraine there's one big force, interested in it, but all its attempts are doomed to fail in advance," the Georgian leader said.
