Georgia demands extradition of Mikheil Saakashvili from Ukraine. This was stated by Georgian Foreign Minister David Zalkaliani on the Imedia TV channel.

He informed that a case on Saakashvili has been opened in Georgia and he was in a wanted list.

“Of course, we would have a completely different reaction if Saakashvili was just a citizen of Ukraine, and not wanted and convicted in Georgia. We turned to the Ukrainian authorities to extradite Saakashvili. Unfortunately, representatives of the Ukrainian authorities in today's comments missed this circumstance,” said David Zalkaliani.

He added that in international practice, strategic partnership provides for respect for each other's sovereignty.

The mentioned presidential decree also puts Oleksandr Olshansky second in charge in the Executive Committee of Reforms of Ukraine, that is, Saakashvili's deputy.

The document also provides changes to another decree that regulates the single state politics of reforms in Ukraine, provision of the work of the National Council of Reforms and Executive Committee of Reforms.
