Avakov posts video of quarrel with Saakashvili
The video of a spat, which occurred between Ukrainian Interior Minister Arsen Avakov, Odesa Governor Mikheil Saakashvili and Prime Minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk during a meeting of the National Council of Reforms at the Presidential Administration's building on Monday, was posted on Avakov's Facebook page on Wednesday.
"Everyone who is interested: here is the footage of the quarrel with Saakashvili, which was provided by the Presidential Administration at my request. You can watch this full-length video. There's little beautiful in it, but with the current scale of public discourse and mainly the motives behind it, it's important that every person could see what it is about. It's a shame to hide the truth. And to try to look better than you are," Avakov wrote on Facebook.
As was reported earlier, Avakov quarreled with Saakashvili during the Monday meeting and threw water in his face.
Saakashvili later wrote on Facebook that he demanded that the Presidential Administration's press service make the footage of the incident public. He said that both the interior minister and the prime minister had behaved "in an undignified and provocative way."
