The member of Georgian Parliament Nukri Kantaria stated the question of extradition of ex-President of Georgia Mikheil Saakashvili from Ukraine to his motherland should be raised, as Georgia Online reported.

“I consider this absolutely logical when a person is on a wanted list, the question of his extradition should be raised. I think this should be this way,” the MP said.

His colleague Akaki Zoidze noted that Georgian Prosecutor’s Office should appeal to Ukraine with a demand to extradite Saakashvili.

Mikheil Saakashvili has got his Ukrainian citizenship again. This is mentioned in the decree of President Volodymyr Zelensky who reinstated the citizenship of the former Georgian president. 

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 had been staying in Warsaw until now.
