Ukraine | 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”.

Ukrainian politicians have paid $2 billion to US-based lobbyists over the past three years, which can be seen from reports of lobbying companies that regularly disclose their contacts.

The most active customers of overseas lobbying services are the Ukrainian Presidential Administration and the Yulia Tymoshenko’s Batkivshchyna (All-Ukrainian “Fatherland”) Party, writes Novoe Vremya news website, citing an investigation by journalist Tatiana Kozyreva.
At the same time, the fact that both the Presidential Administration and Tymoshenko’s team hired lobbyists had been concealed by working with the American professionals through various funds or public organizations.
