Ukrainian officials says German doctors will arrive in Ukraine on April 13 to examine the conditions at a hospital where jailed ex-Prime Minister Yulia Tymoshenko has been offered medical treatment.

A Foreign Ministry official said the doctors had "verbally" informed Ukraine's embassy in Germany that they are ready to examine the hospital in the city of Kharkiv, RFE/RL reports.

Western doctors who examined Tymoshenko earlier this year found that she suffered debilitating pain from a slipped disk.

As reported, Tymoshenko refuses to undergo treatment in Kharkiv hospital, insisting on a foreign clinic and independent doctors.
