Ukrainian military pilot Nadia Savchenko has been freed from Russian captivity. She was released in a prisoner exchange between the two countries. Savchenko received Ukraine's highest honor in a ceremony with President Petro Poroshenko.
A judge has denied a request by prosecutors to put former Georgian President Mikheil Saakashvili under house arrest. He is accused of trying to bring down the Ukrainian president.
Earlier this week Mikheil Saakashvili was dramatically busted out of police custody by a mob of supporters. But authorities have now taken him back into custody.
Former Georgian President Mikheil Saakashvili is facing charges of trying to overthrow the Ukrainian government. But Saakashvili's supporters accuse the Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko of corruption.
The showdown involving Mikheil Saakashvili is a sideshow. But if those in power in Kyiv continue to block the fight against corruption, the consequences will be devastating, writes DW's Bernd Johann.
