Ukraine's ex-Odessa Region governor and former Georgian President Mikheil Saakashvili on Thursday said he will enter Ukraine from Poland on Sunday, along with thousands of supporters, APA reports quoting Sputnik.
On July 26, Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko revoked Saakashvili's Ukrainian citizenship when it was discovered that Saakashvili had violated Ukrainian law by providing incorrect information on his citizenship application. Saakashvili in response announced that he would return to Ukraine on September 10 through the Krakowiec crossing point on the Poland-Ukraine border.
"Several thousand people are going to come with me from Poland," Saakashvili said in an interview with the Georgian Rustavi 2 TV channel, adding that a number of Ukrainian politicians and hundreds of reporters are expected to meet him at the border.
Saakashvili noted that EU lawmakers may also be present at the crossing point.
