Georgia's Foreign Ministry has recalled its ambassador from Ukraine. This was reported by UNIAN with reference to sources in diplomatic circles.

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

At the same time, Georgian media reported that Georgian Foreign Minister David Zalkaliani was "very upset" by Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky's decision.

In addition, according to member of the National Movement Party and ex-chief of the National Police of Ukraine Khatia Dekanoidze, the Georgian government virtually decided to declare diplomatic war on Ukraine.

Ambassador of Georgia to Ukraine Teymuraz Sharashenidze stated that possible appointment of former President of Georgia (2004-2013) and former head of the Odessa Regional State Administration Mikheil Saakashvili to the post of Vice Prime Minister of Ukraine for reform is likely to be perceived in Tbilisi as unfriendly and unacceptable step on the part of a strategic partner.

Saakashvili earlier reported on his Facebook that he had received an offer to become vice prime minister for reform in the Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine.
