The Batkivshchyna Party plans to appeal to all democratic organization and diplomatic mission regarding the threat to Yulia Tymoshenko’s life.

"This morning her lawyers again asked for an urgent medical examination, however, Kireyev said he will officially inform them of his decision," Oleksandr Turchynov, the first deputy head of Batkivshchyna, told journalists today, according to the official website of Yulia Tymoshenko.

According to him, Yulia Tymoshenko’s health has deteriorated while being held in custody. "You know how brave Yulia Tymoshenko is remaining despite the absurd charges, despite the violations of the Constitution and law during this disgraceful trial. But yesterday her health began to deteriorate for unknown reasons," he said.

"Her condition is so bad that she can’t take the short walks that she’s allowed in prison," he added.

Today the Pechersk District Court of Kyiv refused to consider the defense’s request to allow a doctor examine Yulia Tymoshenko. Judge Kireyev said that "all the defense’s questions" will be addressed according to the manner prescribed by the law. When asked by the ex-premier's lawyers at exactly what time the request will be considered, the judge asked that they "not contradict the presiding judge."

"This isn’t a trial, this is a lynching. If the court knowingly doesn’t give me permission to see a doctor, then the judge is knowingly violating his oath," said Yulia Tymoshenko.
