Volker says Saakashvili has right to have case reviewed in Ukrainian court
Special U.S. representative on Ukraine Kurt Volker has said he believes ex-President of Georgia, ex-Odesa Regional Administration head and leader of the New Forces Movement Mikheil Saakashvili should have the opportunity to have his case reviewed in a Ukrainian court.
"Ukraine is a country where the rule of law reigns. Saakashvili has the right to have his case heard in a Ukrainian court. I hope that people will deescalate the political drama and concentrate on legal regulation. For Ukraine this is just as important as the war against corruption and economic reforms," Volkier said. His taped comments appeared on Saakashvili's Facebook page.
Volker said Ukraine should be a strong democratic and economic country to defend against Russian aggression and become a successful government in the future.
Volker also said he does not recommend arresting Saakashvili and proposed that Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko focus on Rule of Law, strengthening institutions and government administration.
