kiev - The Ukrainian President of Poroshenko, former president of Georgia and former governor of the Ukrainian region of Odessa, Michail Saakashvili, has suddenly unpacked Ukrainian nationality for no reason. This is reported by the BBC based on reports from the Ukrainian immigration service on Wednesday evening.

Poroshenko has not commented on the decision. Saakashvili says, from abroad, in a video on Facebook 'to fight for his rights. 'According to the ex-president, he' is treated in the same way as ordinary Ukrainians, whose rights are sprained. '

Saakashvili received the Ukrainian nationality in 2015, after which he was appointed governor of the Odessa region. 'Furious about the corruption in Ukraine' he retired last year from his new position. With the acquisition of Ukrainian nationality, Georgian nationality automatically disappears.

On his Facebook page, he says he has accepted the Ukrainian nationality 'to make reforms and make a superstate of Ukraine. 'In Georgia, the ex-president is suspected of abuse of power, allegations that, according to Saakashvili, are politically motivated.

Saakashvili is married to the Dutch Sandra Roelofs.
