Saakashvili claims Poroshenko planned to swap Crimea

Former Georgian President Mikheil Saakashvili claimed that back in 2014 incumbent Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko had allegedly informed him of intention to "exchange" Crimea for EU and NATO membership.

"I had a conversation with Poroshenko and he told me: 'You have almost got used to the idea that South Ossetia and Abkhazia will never become a part of Georgia again, and we should get used to the idea that Ukraine will never have Crimea again as well," Saakashvili said, Sputnik reported.

"But we will exchange it for membership in the European Union and NATO," Saakashvili cited Poroshenko as saying.
