Ex-president of Georgia Mikheil Saakashvili lost 12 kilograms on the eighth day of the hunger strike. This was announced by his lawyer, RIA Novosti reports.

"His morale is good, but his physical condition is naturally starting to deteriorate," the lawyer said.

He confirmed that his client had already received the promised TV. Saakashvili is expected to meet with his mother and children early next week.

But, according to the lawyer, Saakashvili has no right to make calls.

"He really has a TV, and they also brought in a mattress. The mattress was brought in earlier, but it did not meet basic human requirements," the lawyer said.

On October 1, the Georgian ex-president wrote on Facebook that he crossed the border of Georgia. Later that day, Prime Minister of Georgia Irakliy Garibashvili claimed that Saakashvili was detained and taken to the penitentiary facility. The Ukrainian side claimed it was an act of Georgia's "revenge" against Saakashvili.

Later, Deputy Prime Minister Tea Tsulukiani stated that the Georgian government does not consider the option of extradition of ex-president Mikheil Saakashvili to Ukraine.

On October 4, a Ukrainian consul visited ex-president and former Ukrainian lawmaker Mikheil Saakashvili in the Georgian prison.
