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.
