 Law enforcers arrived in Lviv hotel where Saakashvili is staying. VIDEO

State Border Service officers and police came to Leopolis hotel in Lviv, where Rukh Novykh Syl party leader Mikheil Saakashvili is staying, at 7 a.m. Sept. 12.

This was announced by Rukh Novykh Syl member Ivan Slobodianyk on Facebook, Censor.NET reports.

The law enforcers came to serve an indictment to Saakashvili of an administrative offence he committed while crossing the state border in Shehyni on Sept. 10.

One of the border guards said it was the only reason for their arrival.

"We want him personally to familiarize with this document, but we are so far prevented from doing so."

Law enforcers have been met by MPs who accompany Saakashvili and his lawyers.

As reported, Saakashvili decided to enter Ukraine on Sept. 10 by train to avoid turmoil at Krakovets border crossing point. Intercity train from Przemysl to Kyiv was supposed to leave at 1:07 p.m. yesterday but was delayed for several hours. Some sources reported the train was delayed by law enforcers, but police soon disproved the reports. In its turn, Ukraine's major railway carrier Ukrzaliznytsia explained the delay in schedule by presence of a person on board who had no grounds to enter Ukraine.

Saakashvili subsequently arrived at Shehyni border crossing point where his supporters breached across the Ukrainian border and brought the politician and his delegation onto territory of Ukraine.

On July 26, President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko signed a decree that deprived former Georgian President Mikheil Saakashvili, leader of Rukh Novykh Syl party, of his Ukrainian citizenship.

On Sept. 5, Deputy Justice Minister for European Integration Serhii Petukhov announced that the Ministry of Justice of Ukraine received a request from the Georgian Prosecutor General's Office to arrest and extradite former Georgian President, ex-head of the Odesa regional state administration Mikheil Saakashvili.
