KIEV, Ukraine. The State Migration Service of Ukraine has denied Mikhail Saakashvili, the ex-head of the Odessa Regional State Administration, recognition as a refugee.
Guided by Part 8 of Article 8 of the Law of Ukraine “On Refugees and Persons in Need of Additional or Temporary Protection”, they refused to recognize Saakashvili as a refugee or a person in need of additional protection.
“According to Art. 8 of the Law of Ukraine “On Refugees and Persons in Need of Additional or Temporary Protection” we inform you that, Saakashvili Mikhail Nikolozovich, has been refused registration of documents for resolving the issue of recognition as a refugee or a person in need of additional protection in connection with the obvious unreasonableness of the application.
Precisely because of the lack of justified fears of becoming a victim of persecution on grounds of race, religion, nationality, citizenship (citizenship), membership in a particular social group or political opinion and the lack of proof of the threat to life, security or freedom, ” the Ministry said.
Saakashvili is a stateless person. In 1991 he gave up his original Soviet citizenship and obtained native Georgian citizenship. In 2015, after a scandalous political career as Georgia’s president, and following a warrant issued out for his arrest, Georgian citizenship was revoked. Between 2015 and 2017, under the helpful guidance of friend and colleague Senator John McCain, Saakashvili was granted Ukrainian citizenship, when he became Governor for the Odessa region. For no reason whatsoever and no ties to the Ukraine.
After a series of disagreements with the Ukrainian government, his Ukrainian citizenship was also revoked. Saakashvili is technically a ‘presidential candidate’ without a legal basis for being in the country at all. Only in Ukraine!
