"I have no complaints about the judges because they were not provided with materials. Why didn't they get the documents? On January 3, everyone will have a rest or sleep. The world will not follow the events. They [court] will decide what they want," Saakashvili said, commenting on the court's decision.

Saakashvili said before the consideration of the appeal on December 22 that the SBU Security Service of Ukraine had handed a summons over to him for questioning at 11:00 on December 26. He signed it and said it was the proof that he was not evading the SBU's investigation.
