Decisions on the activities, system and place of the treatment of convicts in Ukraine are taken by respective institutions, rather than the Presidential Administration.

The administration's press service announced this in a statement in connection with reports in the media about the negotiations allegedly being held between the administration of the Ukrainian president and the German government regarding the treatment of former Ukrainian Prime Minister Yulia Tymoshenko in Berlin.

"The administration of the Ukrainian president is holding constant consultations with all parties interested in the reform of the justice system. At the same time, decisions on the activities, system and place of the treatment of convicts in our country are taken by respective institutions, namely the State Penitentiary Service of Ukraine, the Prosecutor General's Office and the Ukrainian Health Ministry," reads the statement, UKRINFORM reports.

At the same time, the press service said that the president had repeatedly stated that Tymoshenko should receive all of the necessary medical assistance and that the doctors and other individuals responsible for her health should pay maximum attention to this question.

Earlier, German media reported that the German government was in talks with Kyiv on the possible treatment of former Prime Minister Yulia Tymoshenko in Berlin. In particular, according to the newspaper Suddeutsche Zeitung, negotiations are being held directly between the administration of the Ukrainian president and the Office of German Federal Chancellor Angela Merkel.
