What should be done with Mikheil Saakashvili?

“Leave him alone. Let him go to Georgia and reform there. But he should be brought to justice if he comes to Ukraine.”
Olha Ratushniuk project manager
“I don’t think anyone should break the law — not the president, not ordinary citizens and not stateless persons. The case should be investigated impartially, and in accordance with the current legislation. Of course, there’s the rub — we still don’t have a fair judicial system.”
Bohdan Lenko lawyer
“I’d probably let him live in Ukraine, having returned him his citizenship. Depriving him of his citizenship was basically unjustified.”
Milana-Anastasiya Panchenko journalist
“For some reason, the Russian quote ‘Let go and pardon’ springs to mind. Saakashvili seems to threaten to upstage the president, and to some extent, he’s a showman. But our country is at war. We don’t need political bread and circuses.”
Kateryna Pitz media artist
“If he wants to live in Ukraine and behaves himself, he should be able to live here.
Andriy Vlasenko self-employed
“I think he should go to prison for about 14 years right now, and after that we can decide what to do with him.”
Andriy Yakovyna surveyor
“Let him go back to his motherland. If he’s not welcome there, let him go wherever he wants. But there’s no place for him in Ukraine.”
