Poland summons Ukrainian ambassador over Saakashvili

Polish politicians are following the situation around the case of former president of Georgia, former governor of the Odessa region Mikheil Saakashvili. The ambassador of Ukraine was summoned to the Foreign Ministry of Poland, Radio Libert reported.

"The Polish Foreign Ministry summoned the Ukrainian Ambassador to Poland to provide explanations," the report said, citing the Polish MEP Saryusz-Wolski.

A number of Polish media published Saryusz-Wolski's statement. Wolski had arrived in Przemyśl to express support for Mikhail Saakashvili. He said the actions of the Ukrainian authorities were uncivilized and he promised to raise this issue at the next meeting of the European Parliament.

Wolski explained that Saakashvili's case is being monitored by Polish Foreign Minister Witold Waszczykowski, Ministry of the Interior Mariusz Błaszczak, and Minister of Infrastructure and Construction Andrzej Adamczyk.

Saakashvili was staying in Europe, having been deprived of Georgian and Ukrainian citizenship. He tried to get into Ukraine all day on September 10 but he was frustrated at the Shehyni checkpoint in the Lviv region. Saakashvili supporters who had gathered at the checkpoint eventually broke through the cordon of border guards and police and brought the ex-governor of the Odessa region to the territory of Ukraine. The politician has arrived in Lviv.
