Former Prime Minister Yulia Tymoshenko will agree to undergo treatment at the Ukrzaliznytsia Central Clinical Hospital № 5 in Kharkiv if it is administered by independent physicians.

"Yulia Tymoshenko’s position is clear: strict compliance with the recommendations of the German physicians and treatment by independent doctors, either Ukrainian or foreign. We have no problems with the equipment at the Kharkiv clinic, but for three months now Yulia Tymoshenko has been asking for access to an independent Ukrainian doctor that she trusts - Professor Mykola Polishchuk, but we’re getting denials," lawyer Serhiy Vlasenko said today on channel TVi, Tymoshenko's official website reports.

The lawyer stressed that any prisoner, in the absence of the necessary medical specialist at the prison, can request to be treated by a trusted doctor. "By law, the penitentiary service must allow any prisoner, not just Tymoshenko, to be seen by a specialized physician if there isn’t one in the prison. We understand that there is no specialist in the prison, and therefore they should give Polishchuk access," he added.
