KIEV, May 9 (Itar-Tass) — Doctor Lutz Harms with Germany’s Charite clinic plans to start treatment of Ukraine’s former prime minister Yulia Timoshenko, who has been convoyed from prison to Ukrzheldoroga’s hospital in Kharkov, already on Wednesday, First Deputy Health Minister Raisa Moiseyenko told reporters.
“Now Yulia Vladimirovna is undergoing medical examination, after which treatment will begin,” she said noting that German doctor Lutz Harms will be treating Timoshenko, while during examinations neurologist Irina Fursa and a doctor from the Kachanovskaya penal colony, where the ex-prime minister is serving her term, will be present.
Moiseyenko supposed that Harms would be accommodated in the hospital.
“Such a variant is not ruled out,” she said adding that the German doctor brought medicines for Timoshenko.
Another patient with similar symptoms will undergo treatment in one ward with Timoshenko.
The head of the state penitentiary service’s Kharkov region department, Yevgeny Barash, said three rooms on the ninth floor of the hospital will be given to Timoshenko: a ward with a bed, a wardrobe, a wall lamp for reading, a washstand and WC, an electric kettle, a water cooler, and a plasma TV. Moreover, she will have an eating room and a room for meeting with her lawyers. On the same floor there is a plasmapheresis cabinet and a medical treatment room, including that for physical therapy.
The hospital’s chief doctor, Mikhail Afanasyev, noted that physical therapy will take place in Timoshenko’s ward or in a plasmapheresis cabinet, if need be.
Timoshenko serves a seven year prison term for abuse of office during gas negotiations with Russia in 2009.
