Saakashvili became a stateless person

The former Georgian president and former governor of the Odessa region, Mikhail Saakashvili was deprived of Ukrainian citizenship.
The corresponding decree was signed by President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko.
It was confirmed in the State Migration Service. The department was informed that the decision was made on the basis of paragraph 2 of Article 19 of the Law “On Citizenship”. It is noted that Saakashvili indicated false data in the questionnaire: the documents that Saakashvili filled to obtain Ukrainian citizenship indicated that he was not under investigation in Ukraine or abroad, but he was arrested in absentia on the territory of Georgia.

Ukrainian political observers comment Saakashvili was in conflict with Poroshenko and tried to form an opposition movement of his own. In the new status Saakashvili can’t take part in Ukrainian politics, so Poroshenko completely destroyed his plans.
Thus, at present Saakashvili is a person without any citizenship. He lost his citizenship of Georgia on December 4, 2015, and a decree on this was published on the website of Georgian President Georgi Margvelashvili. The citizenship of Ukraine he received in accordance with the decree of the President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko May 30, 2015.
