KIEV, March 7 (Itar-Tass) — The diagnosis of theGerman doctors, who were part of the international medical commission that examined the former Prime Minister Yulia Timoshenko, actually echoed the conclusions of the domestic medics, Ukrainian Public Health Minister Raisa Bogatyryova said on Wednesday, in the course of a meeting with the German specialists who examined Timoshenko.
"All the recommendations by specialists on therapeutic treatment of the patient will be taken into account," the Bogatyryova assured, according to the press service of the Prosecutor General's Office.
She noted that Prosecutor General Viktor Pshonka, for his part, assured the German delegation that "Ukraine would continue to contribute to Timoshenko’s getting proper assistance; if necessary, the treatment for her will be provided outside of the Kachanovskaya penitentiary."
The German doctors said they intended, by the end of the year, to pass and discuss with their Ukrainian colleagues the final conclusions regarding Timoshenko's health, and coordinate the recommendations regarding her further rehabilitation and treatment.
On February 4 through 15, an independent international medical commission which included doctors from Germany and Canada, as well as the leading Ukrainian doctors, examined Timoshenko, who is serving a sentence for exceeding her authority when signing gas supply contacts with Russia in 2009.
After examining Timoshenko, the foreign doctors left Ukraine, promising to present their final conclusions later.
At the request of the former prime minister, and upon the recommendations of the international commission, Timoshenko was additionally examined at a Kharkov medical facility. Of all the necessary tests, only a blood test is yet to be taken, Ukraine's penitentiary service reported.
Timoshenko's supporters said her health had sharply deteriorated since she was taken in custody in August 2011. She cannot move unassisted because of pains in the back. At the same time, medics of the penitentiary service said "Timoshenko does not require surgery or treatment at a specialized medical facility."
