Ukraine | Why did Poroshenko appointed Saakashvili the Governor of Odessa region

Former Georgian President Mikhail Saakashvili is appointed the Governor of Odessa. He succeeds in this position Mr. Palitsa who is the Dnepropetrovsk oligarch Kolomoisky’s trustee.
Some of the residents of Odessa see in this the revelation of the confrontation between oligarchs Kolomoisky and Poroshenko. Kolomoisky’s response to Saakashvili’s appointment was very harsh and negative.
However, in this case this conflict does not play the most important role. Much more important are the goals pursued by Poroshenko and those who stand behind him, with his appointment.
You have to understand that one of the main goals of the Ukrainian crisis is drawing Russia into the war. And one of the places of possible provocations aimed at the retaliatory action is Pridnestrovie (Transnistria), which is close to the Odessa region.
Pridnestrovie (Transnistria)is a narrow strip of land over a length of 200 km, which does not have a border with Russia. It is a landlocked country with population of more than 200 thousand Russian citizens. Currently, Pridnestrovie (Transnistria)is blockaded both from Ukraine and Moldova. The conflict is now in a frozen phase, and one of the apparent purposes of Saakashvili assigning is the unfreezing of this conflict.
Why Saakashvili? I think that the role of instigator of hostilities cannot go to one of the local, due to moral reasons. And for a newcomer who has an experience of unleashing bloody conflicts, there is no problem to accomplish such a task. Especially since he does not have any personal, family and other ties in the Odessa region.

Geopolitical:
– Block completely TMR (Transnistria Moldavian Republic) and start a regional war against Pridnestrovie (Transnistria)and possibly against Gagauzia.
Political economy:
– Complete the privatization of ports in the interests of the US corporations, sliding the local oligarchy and the bourgeoisie, who thought that it would be involved in this;
– Ensure the export of grain and food through the ports, so that in the second step it could trigger famine in the south of the former Ukrainian.
Political:
– Finally clean up all the disloyal, especially in the media environment and in the local councils;
– Attract the part of the local elite and the bourgeoisie at the expense of transfer of assets of the disloyal part of elite.
Power:
– Integrate disparate associations or paramilitary thugs into an effective punitive body;
– Clean up the police grass roots, which is mostly disloyal to the Euromaidan regime.
