before his arrest. He said he had returned to Georgia because he missed his homeland very much. At the same time, I finally described my difficult route. As it turned out, he still came to Georgia by sea, although during this trip there was a place in the cold room for a ventilation space …


The opposition television channel was not allowed to enter prison. Saakashvili answered written questions from journalists, which were sent to his camera. Among other things, the ex-president said he got to Poti on the “ Vilnius & # 39; & # 39; through a third country. It is assumed that through Turkey. However, this ferry, which transported tourists from Vilnius to Stockholm and then crossed into the Black Sea, runs directly between Ukraine and Georgia. Regular flights to Poti depart from Chornomorsk. The ferry takes 37 hours.

In an interview with journalists, Saakashvili lamented that he must get there not in business class, but in a “ much less convenient way & # 39; & # 39 ;, and in fact: & nbsp; “ Vilnius & # 39; & # 39; & ndash; The ferry is road-rail. Its cargo platforms are driven by 103 cars and several dozen refrigerators. However, there are 108 cabins on the upper decks. & Nbsp;

The ferry left the Ukrainian port on September 28, already on the 29th in Pot. Unloading and customs clearance took several more hours. This was the time the ex-president spent in the ventilation area of ​​an Elguji Somaya truck transporting dairy products. After Saakashvili was on Georgian soil, in addition to Poti, he also visited Abash, Batumi and Kutaisi, ate khachapuri in the Rikot Pass, and only then went to Tbilisi. Where he was arrested almost immediately.

Meanwhile, a special commission has been set up in the Georgian parliament, which includes doctors to monitor Saakashvili's health. According to lawyer ex-president Bek Basilai & nbsp; politician is now very bad. He began to have speech problems, his legs swelling due to starvation. & Nbsp; It is true that Saakashvili does not eat at all: at the beginning of the hunger strike he bought several cans of honey and several packages of juice. & Nbsp;

А The Ukrainian authorities, which have promised to get their citizen out of the dungeon, have not yet taken any measures to fulfill this promise. The deputy head of the Prosecutor General's Office of Ukraine said that there were no requests for Saakashvili's extradition. “ At this time, no petitions from the Ukrainian authorities for the preparatory investigation & # 39; & # 39 ;, & ndash; he said. So how long has the ex-president been sitting on honey and juice & ndash; unknown. Next weekend, Georgia will hold the second round of municipal elections, after which it will be clear whether Saakashvili should have crossed the sea in an “uncomfortable way” and go on a hunger strike.

The UN is concerned about Polish laws that allow migrants not to be granted asylum


Refugee Affairs has expressed concern that a law has been passed in Poland allowing refusal of asylum to illegal migrants.

By law, only migrants from countries where their lives are at risk can apply for asylum. Refugees detained on the border with Belarus will be banned from entering Poland for three years.

Christine Goyer, Deputy UN High Commissioner for Refugees in Poland, said the bill had undermined the right to seek asylum and was also in breach of the Convention relating to the Status of Refugees.

Poland has introduced a state of emergency on the border with Belarus due to the increased influx of illegal migrants. Belarus, on the other hand, does not release illegal immigrants who are trying to enter the EU and thus leave them in the border zone.

Foreign Ministry Spokeswoman Maria Zakharova spoke via video link at the World Congress of Compatriots Living Abroad. Her performance began with an incident – the broadcast did not want to start due to a technical problem. “We will assume that this problem was caused by our enemies,” joked Deputy Foreign Minister Andrei Rudenko, who leads the second part of the forum. After a snag, the connection with Zakhar was re-established.

According to her, the negative reaction to the Russian world in Western countries is “good” because it shows that Russia is going in the right direction.

“It is perfectly normal for the modern world that the Russian world causes a negative reaction from the very forces that have practically declared a crusade against our country. I mean not only modern Russia, but the sum of all our traditions, culture, achievements – all this causes anger, “says Zakharova.

She noted that Western countries were trying to interfere in Russia's internal affairs and that some journalists abroad had been persecuted.

Maria Zakharova also recalled an archive of British writings that was “released” in February, suggesting that London supports the work of independent publications in Russia, including Mediazona (recognized by the media agent) and Medusa (recognized as media-foreign agent). According to Zacharova, these media “deal with the misinformation of the population” and work to undermine Russia's authority. “How long does it take to rewind a string … you know the continuation of this proverb,” ​​she threatened.
