At the same time, another senior source said that he was being deported not to the Netherlands, because there he could only go on their own. But the opportunity [to go to the Netherlands] left him in case if he agreed to voluntary deportation.

“This is called a readmission – the return of the illegal alien in the country where the underground has arrived,” he added.

This means that Saakashvili will be deported to Poland, because in Ukraine he came from there in September 2017, after breaking through the border.
