Batkivshchyna Party leader and former Prime Minister Yulia Tymoshenko has again asked the court to allow a doctor and nurse she trusts draw blood for analysis.

“This is the 13th day that I am saying that that I have strange symptoms and require an immediate blood test. But I am asking that this not involve the authorities because I am afraid of them performing any procedures on me. The fact that I remain without medical care is your responsibility,” Yulia Tymoshenko told the judge.

Oleksandr Plakhotnyuk, the ex-premier’s lawyer, said that a committee from the Ministry of Health again saw Yulia Tymoshenko in jail on Saturday, but her personal doctor wasn’t allowed to examine her or take blood for analysis.

He also noted that as soon as government doctors visit Yulia Tymoshenko, information about her health is immediately given to the media “and in distorted form.” “Therefore, the defense is asking for permission for Yulia Tymoshenko’s personal doctor and nurse to examine her and take blood for analysis,” said Oleksandr Plakhotnyuk, according to the official website of Yulia Tymoshenko.

In turn, defense lawyer Mykola Siryi asked the court to admit doctors from recognized independent international health organizations in the committee from the Ministry of Health.

Judge Rodion Kireyev said that the defense’s motion will be entered into record and will be considered in accordance with the law.
