However, the country’s Interior Ministry denied his words.
Former Georgian President Mikheil Saakashvili said on Friday that he arrived at his homeland eight years after his departure.
“Good morning Georgia. I am already in Georgia after eight years”, he wrote on his Facebook page.
The politician also posted a video on Facebook, in which he claims to have arrived in Batumi.
“This is my Batumi. <…> There was supposed to be my Batumi American Technological University, which was destroyed. Today we would already have a vaccine, and also covid would not kill so many people. I missed this place very much. Today my dream has come true”.
At the same time, the Georgian Interior Ministry told TASS correspondent that Saakashvili did not cross the state border.
