CNN released a video showing ex-President of Georgia Mikheil Saakashvili falling past the bed onto the floor in a hospital room, unable to get to bed. In another video, Saakashvili falls off the bed and a nurse holds his hand.
The policy was transferred to intensive care at the end of January. President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky said that Saakashvili was actually tortured daily, the Ukrainian Foreign Ministry protested against the inhumane treatment of Saakashvili and demanded that he be handed over to Kyiv.
Saakashvili returned to his homeland in October 2021 and was immediately arrested, since back in 2018 a Georgian court sentenced him in absentia to six years in prison, finding him guilty of abuse of power. By May 2022, the health of the ex-president was so undermined that he was transferred to the hospital. Among the diagnoses made to the politician are dementia and "intoxication of the body", in addition, during the time of imprisonment, he lost more than 40 kg.
Saakashvili himself stated that he had been poisoned and turned to the head of the Bellingcat journalistic investigative group, Hristo Grozev, with a request to investigate the attempt on his life.
