Ukraine’s State Migration Service has denied refugee status to the former president of Georgia, former head of Odessa Region administration Mikheil Saakashvili. After the verdict, he can be extradited or deported from the Ukrainian territory under legal basis.

Yuri Lutsenko, Ukraine’s Prosecutor General, has commented on the decision.

“If previously I used to say that Saakashvili has a status that makes it impossible to deport or extradite him anyway, now that the migration service denied him the refugee status Mr. Saakashvili, as usually, did not appealed the verdict in court,” Lutsenko is quoted as saying by Ukrainian mass media.

He stressed that “there are no longer special conditions” that can prevent from deportation or extradition of Saakashvili.
