The West is planning to use Mikheil Saakashvili as a "weapon of war against Russia" to disrupt gas transit from Russia

Summary of Disinformation

This is a tool of neo-conservatives [of the West]. The task of the creation of Saakashvili – a man without passport – is to create a zone of instability around Russia on the transit energy routes, both along the western border and in the Caucasus. Saakashvili’s goal is Georgia. Saakashvili is needed to destabilise the Georgian internal political situation, and to disrupt this project of Russia’s rapprochement with Iran [possible gas transit from Russia to Armenia and Iran]. This is the weapon of war against Russia.

 

Disproof

Conspiracy theory, no evidence given. Mikheil Saakashvili is a frequent target for the pro-Kremlin disinformation campaign: https://euvsdisinfo.eu/disinformation-cases/?text=saakashvili&disinfo_issue=&date=. In fact, the EU's goal is precisely the opposite - through it's Eastern Partnership policy, to create a zone of prosperity and stability in the Eastern Neighbourhood. It is Russia that is causing instability e.g. through its illegal aggression in Ukraine.
