KIEV, August 16. /TASS/. Former President of Georgia and former Governor of Ukraine’s Odessa region Mikhail Saakashvili has announced his plan to return to Ukraine on September 10.
"I am announcing that I will return to Ukraine on September 10, from Poland," he said during a Facebook Live broadcast.
Saakashvili pointed out that he planned to arrive in Ukraine’s Lvov region through the Korczowa-Krakovets crossing. At the same time, he requested the Ukrainian forces not to make a circus show out of his return.
Ukraine’s State Border Guard Service said earlier that Saakashvili’s passport would be confiscated when he made an attempt to cross the country’s border. Ukraine’s Deputy Prosecutor General Yevgeni Yenin, in turn, stressed that the former Georgian president would only be able to cross the border if he had a visa.
On July 26, Ukraine’s Migration Service said in a statement that Saakashvili had been stripped of Ukrainian citizenship in accordance with a decree issued by the country’s President Pyotr Poroshenko. He is currently on a tour of EU countries, having already visited Poland, Lithuania and Hungary. According to Saakashvili, he has been producing his Ukrainian passport when crossing borders. At the same time, he has been repeatedly emphasizing his intention to return to Ukraine.
