Poroshenko: Situation around Saakashvili not worth international attention


The situation around ex-President of Georgia, former Governor of Odesa region Mikheil Saakashvili isn’t worth international attention, President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko said in a joint press conference with President of Lithuania Dalia Grybauskaitė, APA reported citing 112.International.

 

“If we evaluate the situation around Saakashvili, it isn’t worth international attention, because there are specific crimes that were committed and we must ensure transparency of the investigation, complete openness, impartiality of the investigators, and a transparent, fair, and effective trial. These are the things we must guarantee as an independent country,” he said.

 

“If someone who is accused runs away from under the detention or violates the law, the person must be held responsible. But it should have nothing to do with any type of political activity of a certain individual. The law cannot be violated, be it in Ukraine or in Lithuania,” added the Ukrainian president.

 

He also noted that the investigation may address international organization to verify the transparency of their work.
