Ukraine strips citizenship of ex-Georgia leader Saakashvili

Ukraine revokes citizenship of former Georgian PM Saakashvili

Ukrainian media reports that the State Migration Service has said that Saakashvili had submitted incorrect information when he applied for citizenship in 2015.

Asked about the issue, Georgian President Giorgi Margvelashvili told journalists: "I think that Ukraine as a sovereign country has all reasons for (the) decisions it is taking".

Since Saakashvili can not return to Ukraine and is in danger of being extradited to Georgia, Poroshenko's decision was created to force Saakashvili "to take an asylum in America and forget about Ukrainian politics", Leshchenko said.

Mr Saakashvili, a former ally of Mr Poroshenko, is now overseas.

A close ally of Saakashvili's, former deputy chief prosecutor David Sakvarelidze, confirmed Wednesday that the erstwhile strongman has been stripped of his Ukrainian citizenship and that he has been barred from re-entry to Ukraine. To grant Ukrainian citizenship to the former Georgian president, appoint him governor, strip him of Ukrainian citizenship and agree to his extradition to Georgia.

That "will never happen", Saakashvili, who had written in Facebook on July 25 that he was in the United States, said in the video.

Poroshenko's administration did not immediately respond to a request for comment on Saakashvili's accusations against the president.

According to the new-born refugee, he does not fear criminal responsibility in Georgia, because no criminal case has been initiated against him in his native land since the time when he obtained Ukrainian citizenship.

Mr Saakashvili automatically lost his Georgian citizenship when he was given the Ukrainian one.

Saakashvili dismissed that explanation, saying that no country including Ukraine has officially accepted the charges filed against him in Tbilisi.

Saakashvili, who is now in NY, according to his representative Zoe Reyners, slammed the decision, saying in a Facebook post that "there is an attempt under way to force me to become a refugee". "I am more Ukrainian than the majority of today's [Ukrainian] lawmakers".

Saakashvili notably clashed with Ukrainian Interior Minister Arsen Avakov, whom he accused of funding a private militia through corrupt means.
