Medvedchuk Saakashvili took Ukrainian citizenship rental

The ex-president said earlier that the loss of citizenship of Georgia will not prevent him in the future to return.

KIEV, June 5. / TASS /. Former Georgian President Mikheil Saakashvili, who became the head of the Odessa Regional State Administration does not intend to abandon the possibility of returning in the future in the Georgian politics.

Therefore Ukrainian citizenship for him - this is a temporary step, he said the leader of the public movement “Ukrainian choice” Viktor Medvedchuk.

“It’s hard to imagine that it is not an old man, Mikhail Saakashvili decided to become a Ukrainian officials and politicians, ever gave up a career in Georgia. It is clear that he will try to prove themselves more at home,” - said Medvedchuk.

Social activists said that “in less than a day after taking office, Saakashvili, as he had said:” When I had a good finish this project in Odessa, my great pleasure to come back to Georgia, the Georgian continuing its activities. “” And for such activities should have Georgian citizenship. Consequently, the Ukrainian will have to give up, “- stated Medvedchuk.

“It turns out that Ukrainian citizenship he took like rent and does not hide it,” - said the leader of the “Ukrainian choice”. In his opinion, such an attitude to the question of citizenship Saakashvili colors. “Is it compatible with concepts such as fairness and transparency of the high-ranking official, with big words about the dignity of the Revolution?” - Rhetorically Medvedchuk noted, adding that “the answer is obvious.”

In his opinion, such an attitude to the question of citizenship is part of the logic of events on the Maidan. “Citizenship rental - One of the undoubted consequences of this revolution. Shelf instead of” consequences “word” achievements “do not dare” - said Medvedchuk.

Last Saturday, the president of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko signed a decree on granting Saakashvili and Ukrainian citizenship on the same day appointed him head of the Odessa Regional State Administration. President of Georgia Giorgi Margvelashvili called “an affront to their country Saakashvili’s decision to give up the citizenship of Georgia.” According to the laws of the republic, a Georgian citizen is deprived of this status in their home country, having the citizenship of another state, but for the entry into force of the provisions necessary legal and technical procedures in Georgia that can last a month or longer.

The Georgian legislation allowed dual citizenship - this alien must apply to the president of Georgia to grant him citizenship while retaining the passport of another country. Given Margvelashvili position on the issue, the decision regarding the Saakashvili unlikely to be accepted.
