Moscow: Dmitry Peskov, a spokesman for the Russian president, said the Kremlin is concerned about Mikheil Saakashvili's statements regarding his possible exchange with Ukrainian intelligence officers.

"We are watching with great excitement the evolution of his statements. And of course, proceeding solely from humanitarian considerations, we are more concerned with what we hear in his performance, "Peskov said, quoting RIA Novosti.

During the break in the court on December 12, the former chairman of Odessa Regional State Administration Mikheil Saakashvili said that if the Ukrainian court recognizes his guilt, he will be sent to Russia, as Russian President Vladimir Putin will be ready to exchange for all prisoners.

In the evening of December 8 in Kyiv, law enforcement officers detained Saakashvili. The third president of Georgia was detained in the apartment of the former head of the State Institution of Non-Profit Organizations in the Lugansk region, Yuri Pokinboroda, on Prospect Mourning in Kyiv. On the night of December 9, Ukraine's Prosecutor General Yuriy Lutsenko noted that Saakashvili was placed in a temporary detention facility.

In the morning of Monday, December 11, Saakashvili was taken to the Pechersky District Court of Kyiv.

Pechersky District Court of Kyiv refused to petition the Prosecutor General's Office of Ukraine to elect a preventive measure against the former head of the Odessa administration Saakashvili in the form of house arrest.
