KIEV, July 1 (Itar-Tass) - Ukrainian ex-prime minister Yulia Timoshenko, who is undergoing medical treatment at a Kharkov-based clinic, is in stable health condition, the clinic’s chief physician, Mikhail Afanasyev, told journalists on Monday.
“The patient’s health condition is stable,” he said. In his words, Timoshenko is being treated in line with prescriptions issued by medics of the Berlin-based clinic Charite.
“As of now, in line with the prescriptions of the German specialists, the patient is undergoing rehabilitation treatment, such as massage and exercise therapy,” Afanasyev said. According to him, the German doctors issued recommendations concerning Timoshenko’s further treatment on June 21, when they paid their latest visit to Kharkov.
Earlier, Timoshenko’s daughter, Yevgenia, said, referring to Charite doctors, that her mother was in critical condition and badly needed surgery.
Yulia Timoshenko is serving her seven-year term at the Kachanovskaya penitentiary in Kharkov for acting in excess of her office duties while signing gas contracts with Russia in 2009. For more than a year, she has been staying at the Kharkov clinic.
