KHARKOV, April 28 (Itar-Tass) —— Kharkov's Kievsky district court began its meeting on Saturday to consider the case of former prime minister Yulia Timoshenko in absentia.
Defendant Timoshenko is absent. She has filed a statement through the prison administration that she cannot be present due to her health condition, judge Konstantin Sadovsky said.
Opposition members, including leader of the Front of Changes Arseny Yatsenyuk, are present at the court meeting.
