Sakaashvili gained global fame for leading the 2003 Rose Revolution in Georgia that forced President Eduard Shevardnadze to resign.
Around 100 supporters of Saakashvili, the man who pulled Georgia out of Russia's orbit in a 2003 revolution before becoming a governor in Ukraine, gathered outside a police detention centre shouting "shame".
Saakashvili was stripped of his Ukrainian citizenship while on a trip to the United States in July, but forced his way back into the country in September. He also calls upon the worldwide organisations to follow the developments in Ukraine.
"Sakaashvili has a tremendous ego but he has a lot of staying power", he said.
Saakashvili has won broad popularity in Ukraine with his campaign against government corruption, riding a wave of public frustration over Poroshenko's failure to uproot endemic graft.
