The EU countries have made a joint request to the Georgian authorities to show humanity towards Saakashvili and "resolve the issue of his adequate treatment".

Following the Tbilisi City Court, the Georgian Court of Appeal rejected the petition of the lawyers of former President Mikhail Saakashvili to postpone the punishment or release their client from the execution of the sentence and transfer to a foreign clinic for treatment. The court found the petition groundless.

The Georgian authorities are confident that the support of the Ukrainian authorities for former President Saakashvili is capable of disrupting stability in the country.

It's worth reminding that Saakashvili, who headed Georgia from 2004 to 2013. He was sentenced by a Tbilisi court to six years in prison for organizing the beating of opposition MP and businessman Valery Gelashvili by the special forces of the Ministry of Internal Affairs in 2005, who insulted his wife Sandra Roelofs in a newspaper interview.
