"The law stipulates for an administrative path, not a court one, to lose Ukrainian citizenship. Saakashvili can appeal this decision in the Supreme Administrative Court, as well as receive a copy of the decree. The fact that the decree was not published is not a violation of human rights, but protection of personal data as required by the law.
"Saakashvili could only enter Ukraine with a visa (if he's a Ukrainian citizen only and has no other passports). Any performance supported by activists or illegal crossing of the border will be a 100-percent of his administrative liability, and people who will aid him with that will be brought to criminal responsibility," Yenin wrote.
Deputy prosecutor general added that a failure to grant Saakashvili the right to enter with a view to personal presence during the court session is not a violation of the right to a fair trial, since the right to enter a foreign state is not a right guaranteed by the Convention, and the plaintiff can protect his interests through a lawyer.
On July 26, President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko signed a decree that deprived former Georgian President Mikheil Saakashvili, leader of Rukh Novykh Syl party, of his Ukrainian citizenship.
