Georgia ex-leader Saakashvili in Poland after Ukraine

AFP  |  Warsaw 

Former Georgian Mikheil Saakashvili, who fell out with Ukraine's Petro Poroshenko, landed in today after being deported from Ukraine, the Polish border service said.

"was admitted onto Polish territory," the service's told AFP.

Ukraine's border service had earlier said the 50- year-old had resided in "illegally" and had therefore been sent back to the country where he initially came from. After falling out with Poroshenko, Saakashvili, who had been stripped of his passport, broke through the Ukrainian-Polish border with the help of his supporters last September.
