KIEV, March 13 (Itar-Tass) — Ex-Ukrainian Prime Minister Yulia Timoshenko who is serving her time at the Kharkov penitentiary demands therapy at the Center for Sports Science and Sports Medicine Berlin, the Ukrainian State Penitentiary Service said on Tuesday.
Ukrainian physicians visited Timoshenko on Monday but she refused to be examined, the service said. “She strongly rejected the therapy program suggested by German and Ukrainian doctors and demanded treatment abroad, at the Center for Sports Science and Sports Medicine Charite Berlin. The refusal was confirmed in writing,” the service said.
The penitentiary personnel explained rules of medical aid to convicts in Ukraine to Timoshenko. The German and Ukrainian physicians drafted their final recommendations for therapy and rehabilitation of Timoshenko on March 7, including massage, manual therapy, galvanic baths, medical gymnastics and electrophoresis. “The penitentiary created appropriate conditions for the therapy and rehabilitation course,” the service said.
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.
