KIEV, April 2 (Itar-Tass) —— Ukraine’s former Prime Minister Yulia Timoshenko, who is serving a sentence at the Kachanovskaya penitentiary, will receive medical treatment at a specialized clinic of the Ukrainian Railways Co (Ukrzaliznytsi) in Kharkov, the Ukrainian ministry of health said in a release on Monday.
“The clinic’s material and technical base fully meets all the requirements set forth by German doctors and agreed with members of the health ministry’s medical commission,” the ministry said. The clinic, according to the ministry, specializes in offering treatment to patients with similar diseases.
Earlier on Monday, the press service of the prosecutor general’s office said that Ukraine’s Prosecutor General Viktor Pshonka had instructed the State Penitentiary Service and the Ministry of Healthcare to “take measures under the existing laws to have Timoshenko examined and treated at a specialized medical establishment outside the Kachanovskaya penitentiary.”
Late last week, Ukraine’s First Deputy Prosecutor General Renat Kuzmin said that Kiev was looking at a possible treatment course for the former prime minister in Germany.
