“Leave him alone. Let him go to Georgia and re­form there. But he should be brought to jus­tice if he comes to Ukraine.”

“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.”

“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.”
