KIEV, May 9 (Itar-Tass) — Ukraine’s former prime minister Yulia Timoshenko has been taken from the Kachanovskaya penal colony to a central hospital in Kharkov, a source in Tymoshenko’s Batkivshchina (Fatherland) party told Itar-Tass on Wednesday.
Timoshenko’s lawyers say the ex-prime minister will receive medical treatment from Lutz Harms, a neurologist with Berlin’s Charite clinic.
Timoshenko complains of her backache and cannot walk on her own. Earlier she refused from hospitalization in Kharkov’s clinic as her lawyers insisted that doctors of that medical institution had no necessary skills.
Germany and Russia expressed their readiness to receive Timoshenko for treatment in their countries. However, the Ukrainian prosecutor general’s office stated that the effective legislation does not envision the treatment of prisoners in foreign clinics.
Timoshenko serves a seven year prison term in Kharkov’s penal colony for abuse of office during gas negotiations with Russia in 2009.
