Keep Your Chin Up: Saakashvili Predicts Coup in Ukraine Due to Low Morale

The Ukrainian government will soon have another coup due to the low morale of its governing leaders, Odessa Governor Mikheil Saakashvili said, according to Lenta.ru.

 The weakness of the state apparatus and security forces creates a dangerous situation when some informal actors might one day decide that they’re the real governing force in the country, not the government in the Verkhovna Rada, Saakashvili said.

Well, unlike Ukrainian politicians who have “low morale,” Saakashvili seems to never lack in enthusiasm and morale, jumping into every endeavor with a full heart.

Earlier today it was reported that Saakashvili may become a Prime Minister of Ukraine, replacing Arseniy Yatsenyuk, after over 26,000 people signed a petition asking President Petro Poroshenko to consider Saakashvili’s candidacy. The petition was published on the official website of Poroshenko’s office.

Earlier in September, Saakashvili called the work of Yatsenyuk’s government ineffective, claiming that it is controlled by oligarchs. He believes that the damage to the Ukrainian economy caused by the activity of the oligarchs cost as much as 100 billion hryvnas ($45 billion) last year.

Since Yatsenyuk took office, the number of bribes to the civil servants has by no means shrunk, he added.

Yatsenyuk has already called all the accusations a lie.

The war of words between high-ranking Ukrainian politicians continues. They blamed each other of being corrupt, incapable of governing, dishonest and now it appears lacking morale.
