Saakashvili loses court case on his refugee status in Ukraine

The Kyiv District Administrative Court recognized the refusal of the State Migration Service to grant refugee status or political refugee status to the former president of Georgia and leader of the Rukh Novykh Syl party, Mikheil Saakashvili.

The verdict was announced by Judge Tatyana Skochok on Wednesday. She rejected Saakashvili's suit against the Migration Service.

The defense of the former president of Georgia said that they will appeal this decision.

Earlier Saakashvili stated that the Ukrainian authorities would refuse to grant him refugee status and thereby create conditions for his expulsion from the country.
