Mikheil Saakashvili is entitled to a court consideration of his claim of having been illegally stripped of Ukrainian citizenship, US special representative for Ukraine Kurt Volker said Sept 13.
“Ukraine is a law-abiding country. Anyone, including Georgia’s ex-president, has the right to be heard by a court.
I hope the political drama will stop to unfold and the parties will concentrate on the legal settlement,” Volker said.
Volker said he would not advise Poroshenko to detain Saakashvili. Instead Poroshenko should focus on the rule-of-law issues and running the country hit by the Russian aggression.
