Georgian MFA has invited the ambassador of Ukraine for consultations because of a statement by the ex-president of Georgia, Head of the Executive Committee of Reforms Mikheil Saakashvili, 112 International reported referring to the Georgian FM David Zalkaliani.
Saakashvili shared a video message on his Facebook page criticizing the Georgian authorities and speaking about the parliamentary elections in Georgia.
“It is the issue that encouraged us to a very serious approach due to which we recalled the ambassador for consultations. We warned our Ukrainian colleagues about exactly this thing – a person, appointed at one of the high positions, a wanted person that should be prosecuted by the Georgian law on four independent cases, continues to interfere in the inner policy of Georgia. Of course, the statement that we heard yesterday is the direct interference in the inner affairs of another country and direct interference of the citizen of Ukraine in the election process,” Zalkaliani said.
Saakashvili has earlier written on Facebook: “I am not going to stand to see the destruction and complete destruction of Georgia. I will be at the front line of the struggle in fact”.
