The President of Ukraine has offered former Governor of Odessa and former President of Georgia Mikheil Saakashvili to serve as Deputy Prime Minister in the Government of Ukraine. The above information was confirmed by the Spokesperson for the President's Office.

Mikheil Saakashvili responded to the issue on his Facebook page.

"It is a great honor for me to receive an offer from President Zelensky to become the Deputy Prime Minister of Ukraine in the direction of reforms. I also had a very informative and useful conversation with the Prime Minister, during which, we discussed in detail all the issues related to my possible work in the government. Together with the President’s team, I am ready to work with all patriotic forces in the Ukrainian Parliament and other political forces to enable Ukraine to overcome today’s global economic crisis with the least loss and to deal with all challenges. I hope to be a reliable member of the team and help the Ukrainian people by doing something useful for them. I also hope that I will use my international experience to be the government's useful member, including in terms of communicating with international financial organizations to strengthen Ukraine's prestige and its integration into the international community, in order to primarily protect the Ukrainian national interests and contribute to the progress in the country", - Saakashvili says in his Facebook post.
