Ukraine’s Minister of Justice, Pavlo Petrenko, said this week that “there are no legal obstacles” to continuing the extradition procedure concerning former Georgian President Mikheil Saakashvili. Mr Saakashvili was stripped of his Ukrainian citizenship in 2017, 2 years after former Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko granted it and appointed him governor of Odessa Oblast, and Georgia has long called for his extradition. He was sentenced in absentia by a Georgian court to 3 years in custody for abusing his powers to pardon during his time as president.
