Mikheil Saakashvili warned that the Donbass scenario is possible for Odessa due to the social and political instability in the Ukrainian Bessarabia Region.

Odessa may withdraw from Ukraine since it has enough reasons for such a decision, Odessa Governor Mikheil Saakashvili said.

The governor believes that the region may see a repeat of the Donbass scenario. The assumption was made by Saakashvili after having examined the instability in the Ukrainian Bessarabia.

"The Bessarabia Region is instable. Speculations on the dangerous political and social situation are possible there. What happened in Donbass is being repeated there. The Ukrainian government is poorly presented, with practically no support from Ukrainian media," the governor said.

In 2014, Saakashvili predicted Crimea’s withdrawal from Ukraine and made an announcement on the issue.
