Georgia’s ex-president and former Ukrainian regional governor, Mikheil Saakashvili, may be expelled from Ukraine in the coming weeks, sources have told a local newspaper.
The special operation will reportedly involve several law enforcement agencies and will be carried out ahead of New Year celebrations to minimize public attention. The outlet said that the Ukrainian Security Service had refused to comment on further details or allegations.
In October, former governor of Odessa region presented his own makeshift "great plan" for the swift political rescue of Ukraine, using the building of the country's parliament as an improvised projector screen.
The former Georgian president was appointed the Odessa Region's governor in May 2015 and stripped of Georgian citizenship upon receiving his Ukrainian passport. He resigned in November 2016, accusing Ukrainian officials of a lack of interest in the fight against corruption. Later, Saakashvili was stripped of his Ukrainian citizenship by President Petro Poroshenko on the pretext of violating the country's law.
In September, Mikheil Saakashvili audaciously breached the country's border with a frenetic crowd of his supporters, avoiding any security or pass checks.
