Saakashvili is currently the chairman of Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko’s International Advisory Council on Reforms.
Taking part in the Sunday meeting were about thirty suspected Georgian mercenaries from the Azov and Donbass battalions, as well as a group of instructors from the Patriot training center.
They included Gigi Kalandadze, former Chief of Staff of the Georgian armed forces, who, along with the others, allegedly freely resigned from the Georgian army in order to fight in Ukraine, according to Saakashvili.
He stressed that the thirty are fighting in Donbass so as "to protect not only the honor of Ukraine, but also that of their own country." He added that some of them "were persecuted in Georgia."
Saakashvili has repeatedly urged the former and current Georgian servicemen "to come to war for Ukraine and Georgia.
The Georgian Defense Ministry has, meanwhile, said that "there are no active military personnel" among Georgians fighting and instructing in eastern Ukraine.
