Mikheil Saakashvili, the politician and the former President of Georgia confirmed that he is about to return to Ukraine. He posted this on his Facebook page.
'Thanks to everyone who supported me all this time! I'm coming back to my place in Kyiv', reads the message.
Saakashvili added his plane departs from Warsaw to Kyiv; it is supposed to land at Boryspil airport at 5.15 p.m.
The scandalous politician said he planned to come back to Ukraine, as he considers it his second home place; he pleaded to restore his Ukrainian citizenship. On May 28, the decree of President Volodymyr Zelensky reinstated the citizenship of the former Georgian president.
On July 26, 2017, the-then President Petro Poroshenko, by his decree, ceased Ukrainian citizenship of Saakashvili. On January 29, the Supreme Court began to consider the legality of this decision. On February 12, 2018, the border guards expelled the ex-president of Georgia from Ukraine to Poland as part of the readmission procedure.
Prosecutor General Yuriy Lutsenko stated that Saakashvili financed the protests for the seizure of state power in Ukraine for the money of ex-President Viktor Yanukovych associates, in particular, Serhiy Kurchenko. In December 2017, Saakashvili was detained on suspicion of assisting members of a criminal organization and promoting criminal activity. He was informed of suspicion. In February 2018, he was deported from Ukraine to Poland; he's been staying in Warsaw until now.
