The ex-head of Odesa Regional State Administration Mikheil Saakashvili arrived in Kyiv today, on September 19. This was stated in the commentary to Ukrainian News by Saakashvili's press secretary Daryna Chizh.
It is reported that Saakashvili arrived in Kyiv on Tuesday morning, and on September 20 he will go to the Dnipro.
"In addition, at 12:00 (on September 19) announced a briefing of Saakashvili's lawyers with his participation concerning the appeal of the decree of President Petro Poroshenko on the termination of his citizenship," Chizh said.
As it was reported earlier the President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko stopped the Ukrainian citizenship of the former president of Georgia and the former Chairman of Odesa Region State Administration Mikheil Saakashvili by the decree on the basis of the point 2, article 19 of the Decree on Citizenship, precisely on the basis of the false data that is indicated at the form. Saakashvili wrote that he is not under the investigation in Ukraine or in any other country but it is known that the former president was arrested in absentia in Georgia.
The migration service also noted that the MP Andry Lozovoy filed the request to the General Prosecutor Office concerning the citizenship of Saakashvili and the prosecutor’s office contacted the service. And the Commission on Citizenship Issue made the proper decision on the request.
On August 16, Mikheil Saakashvili announced that he would return to Ukraine on September 10 through the checkpoint in Lviv region. However, the Deputy Head of State Border Guard service of Ukraine Vasyl Servatiuk said that the Ukrainian passports will be seized from the politician and he will be returned to Poland
The Office of the Prosecutor General of Ukraine confirmed the receipt of a request for the extradition of Mikheil Saakashvili, since in Georgia he acts as a defendant in 4 four criminal proceedings and on August 4, 2014 was put on the wanted list.
Saakashvili did arrive in Ukraine on Sunday, August 10.
Saakashvili literally broke into Ukraine, because the crowd that gathered at the checkpoint broke through the border from the Ukrainian side and made a fight with the border guards who were in the transit zone.
Initially, it was planned that he would cross the border through the checkpoint Krakowiec. There was a lot of his supporters, and there was even a fight with the police. As a result of the riots, more than one hundred people were detained. Considering all this, the party decided that Saakashvili would go to Ukraine by train from Przemysl.
However, the train was delayed, as reported in the "Ukrzaliznytsya" because of a man who has no reason to enter Ukraine. It was, apparently, Mikheil Saakashvili.
As a result, the passengers of the train, and with them Saakashvili, were taken to the bus and headed to the Shegyni checkpoint where many people have already gathered to support Saakashvili. There they broke through the border from the Ukrainian side and made a fight with the border guards who were in the transit zone.
