Georgian leader Salome Zurabishvili ruled out the possibility of pardoning ex-Georgian President Mikheil Saakashvili. Zurabishvili said this during a briefing.

She noted that Georgia is tired and now dreams of peace and justice.

"All are united before the law. Many ask whether President Saakashvili will be pardoned. The answer is one, simple and final: no and never," Zurabishvili said.

According to her, Saakashvili's actions speak of his indifference to the fate of the country and are aimed only at turning citizens against each other.

"True or not, one thing is clear - this topic destroys the pre-election situation, strains an already tense and tired society," the Georgian leader said.

Zurabishvili also thanked the security forces for carrying out a quick and professional operation to detain Saakashvili.

On the morning of October 1, the Georgian ex-president wrote on his Facebook page that he returned to his homeland after eight years.

On the evening of October 1, Georgian Prime Minister Irakli Garibashvili said that Saakashvili had been detained in Georgia by law enforcement officers and had already been taken to a penitentiary institution.

However, Saakashvili's office did not immediately confirm the information about the detention and called it a provocation.

Later, the Georgian media published a video of Saakashvili's detention.

The office of the President of Ukraine regards the detention of Mikheil Saakashvili in Tbilisi as revenge against him.
