Former President of Georgia and former governor of the Odesa region of Ukraine Mikheil Saakashvili states Ukraine's Foreign Minister Pavlo Klimkin is a citizen of Russia.

Saakashvili wrote on Facebook, Censor.NET reports.

"Minister of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine Klimkin, instead of doing his job, is calling all day long to all countries I visited or am going to visit with some claims. By the way, Pavlo Klimkin is not ethnic Ukrainian, he is Russian, he was born in Russia, as far as I understand, and speaks Ukrainian worse than me.

"Petro Oleksiiovych [Poroshenko - ed.], here is another candidate to be deprived of his citizenship after you use his services long enough," Saakashvili wrote.
