The release of former Georgian President Mikheil Saakashvili from prison is excluded ahead of schedule, Georgian Prime Minister Irakli Garibashvili said, writes TASS.
“It is ruled out that Saakashvili left the prison ahead of schedule. He will be in prison for at least six years, ”he said, and also noted that opponents of the current authorities are promoting the topic of the arrest of the former leader of Georgia, manipulating the situation with the upcoming second round of local elections to be held on October 30.
