The US special envoy to Ukraine Kurt Volker believes that the ex-Governor of Odessa region to Mikheil Saakashvili should be given the opportunity in court to resolve the issue with Ukrainian citizenship, reports 112.ua.
He hoped that in the Ukraine the incident with the Ukrainian-Georgian politician will decide in the legal field.
“Ukraine – a country where there is rule of law. Anyone, for example, a former President Saakashvili, has the right to a hearing in Ukrainian courts. I hope will stop an escalation of political drama and all the focus on legal settlement. This is for Ukraine not less important than the fight against corruption and economic reforms,” said Walker.
