KIEV, March 23 (Itar-Tass) —— Ex-Ukrainian Prime Minister Yulia Timoshenko, who is serving time in the Kiev penitentiary, once again refused to receive therapy on Thursday.
“Her decision was acknowledged in writing,” the Ukrainian State Penitentiary Service said. “Health Ministry physicians once again told Timoshenko in the presence of the penitentiary infirmary head that she needed treatment by highly skilled doctors [including the German] and that the penitentiary had the necessary medical equipment and drugs. Doctors warned the convict about personal responsibility for her health in the case of her refusal from recommended treatment.”
The service noted that Timoshenko had more than 50 times declined the offered medical checkups and laboratory tests and rejected therapy thrice in February-March.
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.
