KIEV, May 11 (Itar-Tass) —— The family of ex-Ukrainian Prime Minister Yulia Timoshenko will foot the bills of German doctors, lawyer Sergei Vlasenko said on Friday.
“The Timoshenko family will pay the bill of the Charite Clinic Berlin,” he said.
Timoshenko was transferred from the Kharkov penitentiary to the Ukrzheldorogi hospital on May 9. A German doctor is giving her therapy.
Vlasenko said Timoshenko was ready for blood tests only if they were done by independent doctors.
Timoshenko is serving a seven-year-term in Kharkov after the court sentenced her on October 11, 2011, for exceeding the authority in the signing of the gas contracts with Russia in 2009.
The West is closely monitoring her case, and Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe (PACE) rapporteurs for Ukraine plan to visit Timoshenko and speak to her lawyers on May 16.
