The State Penitentiary Service of Ukraine (SPSU) has disclosed a report of refusal form medical examination by the imprisoned Yulia Tymoshenko, which confirms her intention to treat abroad. The document's copy dated March 12 is placed on the SPSU website, UKRINFORM reports.

"Yulia Tymoshenko has flatly rejected the proposed examination by experts of the Ministry of Health, the recommended treatment, including the conservative and rehabilitation, insisting on indoor treatment in the German clinic Charite," the document says.

The report says that objectively the condition of the convict "is relatively satisfactory: the mind is clear, contact is productive, she moves around the room with a walker, gradually extending the motoring," reads the report signed by doctors.

At the same time, the SPSU stresses, specific recommendations for the prescribed treatment are not published within the medical secrecy under the acting health care legislation.

A reminder that the State Penitentiary Service said in a statement on Tuesday that former Prime Minister Yulia Tymoshenko on March 12 refused medical examination, including measurement of temperature and blood pressure, when attended by doctors at the Kachanivska penal colony in Kharkiv, adding that the ex-premier insisted on continuing treatment only abroad.

As reported, on February 14 Yulia Tymoshenko at the Kachanivska women's penal colony in Kharkiv, east of Ukraine, was attended by the head of the Berlin clinic Charite, Karl-Max Einhaupl, and Charite chief orthopedic Norbert Haas. On March 7, during a visit to Kyiv, they said that Tymoshenko was sick and needed medical treatment outside the prison.

Yulia Tymoshenko was sentenced to seven years in prison for abuse of office due to the signing of gas contracts with Russia in 2009. She is serving her prison sentence in the Kachanivska penal colony in Kharkiv.

Several more criminal cases, including the one concerning the activities of the United Energy Systems of Ukraine (UESU) Corporation, which she once led, were also opened against Tymoshenko.
