KIEV, April 4 (Itar-Tass) —— Foreign medics have not contacted Ukraine’s foreign ministry to let them offer medical help to former Prime Minister Yulia Timoshenko, who is currently serving her prison term at the Kachanovskaya penitentiary, Ukrainian Foreign Ministry spokesman Alexander Dikusarov said on Wednesday.
“The Ukrainian foreign ministry has received no requests concerning the arrival of German medics to Ukraine,” he said.
Earlier, Timoshenko’s daughter Yevgenia said that doctors from the German Charit· clinic will be engaged to inspect the central clinical hospital in Kharkov, where Timoshenko will undergo treatment.
Ukraine’s Deputy Minister of Health Raisa Moiseyenko also confirmed that German doctors had not requested a permit to visit the hospital in Kharkov. In the meantime, Nikolai Korzh, Director of the Sytenko Institute of Spine and Joint Pathology noted that “German specialists can be engaged for the treatment of Yulia Timoshenko, if they wish to.”
Timoshenko’s lawyer Sergei Vlasenko, however, said that Timoshenko’s treatment at the hospital should be discussed with German medics. “In order to understand to what degree this hospital meets their recommendations, they need to be invited there to come and say whether the operation they have advised can be performed there or not,” he said.
