A member of the medical commission that examined jailed former Ukrainian Prime Minister Yulia Tymoshenko's health said on Thursday that she did not need any medical operation.

An independent medical commission including doctors from Ukraine, Germany and Canada arrived on Tuesday in Kharkov where they examined Tymoshenko. The German doctors examined Tymoshenko and have already left Ukraine. The doctors' results have not been revealed. On Wednesday morning, the prison service said that Ukrainian and Canadian doctors are continuing Tymoshenko's examination.

"The practice which we used was confirmed, we are not talking about a medical operation so far," a doctor from the Romodanov Institute of Neurosurgery Yevhen Pedachenko said.

Commission members said they had completed the check.

Tatyana Demchenko, a doctor at the penal colony where Tymoshenko is serving her sentence, said they are continuing treatment "the way that has already been prescribed."

The head of the commission, First Deputy Health Minister Raisa Moiseyenko, said the panel's conclusions and recommendations will be passed to the penitentiary service, which will inform Tymoshenko about them.

"Yulia Volodymyrivna will decide" whether to accept these conclusions and recommendations, she said.

The German specialists promised to send a special rehabilitation program for Tymoshenko, Moiseyenko added. "As for rehabilitation methods, the former premier has already received and is using them," she said.
