Rada: Saakashvili deprived of Ukrainian citizenship

Mikheil Saakashvili, the former Georgian president, has been stripped of his Ukrainian citizenship, Ukraine's migration service has said. "The Head of State signed the decree on the grounds of these recommendations", an interlocutor of the agency noted. According to Ukraine's constitution, the president makes "decisions on losses of Ukrainian citizenship based on the conclusions of the citizenship commission", the statement said. Saakashvili headed the Odesa Regional State Administration for a year and a half - from May 30, 2015 to November 9, 2016 - and then announced his resignation.

"Practically they are forcing Saakashvili to take refuge in America and forget about Ukrainian politics", Leshchenko wrote. He quit past year.

Mikhail Saakashvili had left the governorship of Odessa last autumn and since that time he sided with the opposition and severely criticized President Piotr Poroshenko. The President added that as far as he was informed, the reason for the refusal of Saakashvilis extradition was a lack of information pertaining to his alleged crimes.
