KIEV, April 23 (Itar-Tass) —— The former Ukrainian Prime Minister Yulia Timoshenko is ready to take a treatment course at the Kharkov hospital Ukrzheldorogi, if Prof. Nikolai Polishchuk or German doctors are permitted to cure her, Timoshenko’s lawyer and a deputy of the parliament, Sergei Vlasenko said on Sunday.
“Timoshenko does not have any problems and questions over the equipment at this hospital. However, she demands to permit Polishchuk to treat her already for three months,” Vlasenko said. “Should the state authorities intend to provide for Timoshenko’s treatment, they would have attracted the professor or German doctors,” he believes.
Timoshenko was taken from the Kharkov central hospital number 5 Ukrzheldorogi to the Kachanovo penitentiary on Sunday. The decision to transfer the convict was taken, because the latter refused from a medical examination and the launch of treatment once again, Deputy Health Minister Raisa Moiseyenko said.
“Unfortunately, despite our insistent proposals, Timoshenko refused definitely from the treatment. In this respect, we do not have an opportunity to begin treatment. This is not hotel services. The official checkout from the hospital was given, after that she was moved to the penitentiary,” Moiseyenko said.
Timoshenko serves seven years at the Kachanovo penitentiary over the abuse of power in the signing of the gas agreement with Russia in 2009.
