KIEV, April 5 (Itar-Tass) —— German doctors intend to arrive in Ukraine before April 15 to estimate the possibility for treatment of the former prime minister and the leader of the Batkivshchina Party, Yulia Timoshenko, at the central clinical hospital Ukrzaliznytsi in Kharkov, spokesman for the Ukrainian Foreign Ministry Alexander Dikusarov told reporters on Thursday.
“They confirmed to us that German doctors will be able to adjust their schedule and arrive to Ukraine next week. Meanwhile, the foreign ministry will assist to this visit as much as possible,” he said.
Timoshenko stated earlier that she will agree on hospitalization at the Ukrzaliznytsi hospital after the conclusion of German doctors that this hospital is suitable for the treatment of her disease. The doctors from the university clinic Charite in Berlin, which examined the former premier last February, offered their services to cure Timoshenko.
A deputy of the European Parliament from Poland Pavel Koval visited the Kachanovo penitentiary, where he was talking to Yulia Timoshenko, the press service of the Ukrainian State Penitentiary Service reported on Thursday.
Before the meeting with the former prime minister the deputy of the European Parliament examined the main facilities at the penitentiary, particularly the block for keeping women sentenced to life in prison, industrial facilities, a sport complex and a medical station.
Representatives of the US international organization Freedom House earlier visited the Kachanovo penitentiary and stated that they are concerned over Timoshenko’s health after the visit.
