KIEV, March 9 (Itar-Tass) —— Ex-Ukrainian Prime Minister Yulia Timoshenko has been granted the first long meeting with her daughter at the Kharkov penitentiary, warden Ivan Pervushkin said on Friday.
He said the meeting would last until Monday morning. “Convict Timoshenko chose a de luxe room for the meeting. The amenities include a refrigerator, a TV set, a microwave oven and an electric kettle,” he said.
It costs 140 hryvni ($17.5) to rent the room for a day. Timoshenko’s mother was supposed to come for the meeting from Dnepropetrovsk. Her husband has been staying in the Czech Republic, which met him political asylum request, since the end of last year.
The court sentenced Timoshenko on October 11, 2011, to seven years in prison for exceeding her authority in the signing of the gas contracts with Russia in 2009. She was also compelled to pay 1.51 billion hryvni (almost $200 million) to Neftegaz Ukrainy.
