Mikheil Saakashvili's health condition deteriorates on the 10th day of his hunger strike


The health condition of Georgia's third president Mikheil Saakashvili has significantly deteriorated, according to his personal doctor Nikoloz Kipshidze, who recently left Rustavi Penitentiary Facility #12.

The situation has worsened. His condition has significantly worsened. Two days ago he looked completely different. He refused honey and juices and drinks only water. Misha has a blood disorder, thalassemia. I never mentioned it on TV, but today I got the right to make it public. With this blood disease, there can be absolutely no starvation. It causes changes for which there is no reversal. It became difficult for him to walk, speak, he is worried that he is ill," said Nikoloz Kipshidze.

He says Mikheil Saakashvili might be taken to hospital tomorrow.

I did not want to leave the prison today, but then I met the nurse and we talked for half an hour about how to make it tonight, tomorrow will be tomorrow, then we will see how he will be. I'm going to return tomorrow and we will probably have to take him to the hospital, if not tomorrow, then the day after. He has been on hunger strike for 10 days, that's the official duration, but it is not 10 days, I think it has been 14-15 days already. I do not know how he arrived in Georgia, but he told me that he did not eat anything on his way and that when he was in Batumi and moved about there, he had no food," said Mikheil Saakashvili's personal doctor,
