The politician Mikheil Saakashvili who was deprived of Ukrainian citizenship by Ukraine’s President Petro Poroshenko came to Poland, reports Telewizja Republika agency and published the video with his speech in Youtube.
Saakashvili held speech at a commemorative event dedicated to the 73rd anniversary of Warsaw Uprising.
Saakashvili started his speech in Polish and continued in English. In his speech he touched upon the topic of Georgia and Poland cooperation, and also spoke about Ukraine.
It is still unknown on what document the politician entered the country. Saakashvili’s press service does not comment his visit yet.
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.
