Former Georgian President Mikhail Saakashvili has left Ukraine for Poland. 

“The politician flew by charter flight around 4:00 pm Kyiv time” the Ukrainian border service confirmed.

Saakashvili is accused of illegally crossing the Polish-Ukrainian border in early September.

In late October, the Immigration service refused to grant Saakashvili the status of a person in need of additional protection. The court recognized this decision as legal. Saakashvili protested the verdict, but the appellate court upheld it. 

On Monday, Verkhovna Rada deputy Yuri Derevyanko said that unknown people detained Saakashvili in a restaurant and took him to the airport.
