As previously reported, the former head of the Odessa regional state administration, Mikheil Saakashvilli went to the checkpoint “Krakovets” in Lviv.
Recall that in late July, Mikheil Saakashvili was deprived of Ukrainian citizenship because of the provision of false information in the application for citizenship.
The former head of the Odessa regional state administration denies any wrongdoing and vowed to appeal the decision on deprivation of his Ukrainian passport.
At the beginning of September, Ukraine received from Georgia’s request for the arrest and extradition of Saakashvili. In Georgia ex-President faces up to 11 years in prison on the four felony cases. He is suspected of involvement in the killing, raiding and misappropriating public funds. In turn, the Georgian ex-President says the criminal case was fabricated with the purpose of political persecution.
