This decision was confirmed by UNIAN's sources in diplomatic circles.

Tbilisi's move followed speculation about the possible appointment of former Georgian president and ex-governor of Ukraine's Odesa region Mikheil Saakashvili as deputy prime minister for reform in the Ukrainian government.

Georgian media reported that Georgian Foreign Minister David Zalkaliani was "very upset" by Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky's invitation to Saakashvili to join Ukraine's government. In addition, according to Khatia Dekanoidze, a member of the National Movement Party and ex-chief of the National Police of Ukraine, the Georgian government virtually decided to declare diplomatic war on Ukraine.

As UNIAN reported earlier, Saakashvili announced on April 22 that he had received a proposal from Zelensky to become deputy prime minister for reform in Ukraine.
