Based on these recommendations, the president signed an appropriate decree, the Administration said.

"In accordance with the legislation on the protection of personal data, this normative act is not subject to publication, since it contains confidential information," the presidential administration said.

On July 26, President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko on Wednesday signed the decree that deprives former Georgian President Mikheil Saakashvili, leader of Rulh Novykh Syl party, of his Ukrainian citizenship.
