State Border Guard Service of Ukraine is asked not to use the Krakovets checkpoint on September 9-12, because some political parties and deputies announce the holding of a mass action on September 10 in connection with the arrival of the ex-president of Georgia, and ex-head of the Odessa regional state administration Mikheil Saakashvili. This was reported by the press-service of the State Border Guard Service of Ukraine.
"The State Border Guard Service of Ukraine draws attention of those who plan to take part in these rallies that special rules act at the border zone and the controlled border area. There is a border regime regulating the procedure for entry, stay, residence, movement near the border of Ukrainian citizens and other persons. Therefore, we ask you to follow the norms and rules set by the law, "the press service noted.
"Attention to the travelers: in connection with the possible holding of mass rallies near Krakovets checkpoint during September 9-12, the State Border Service of Ukraine recommends choosing other traffic routes in order to avoid possible inconveniences," Border Guard Service added.
As it was reported earlier Poroshenko revoked Ukrainian citizenship of Saakashvili. The State Migration Service of Ukraine confirmed this.
The department explained that Saakashvili lost the citizenship 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.
