On May 9 former Prime Minister Yulia Tymoshenko was transferred from the Kachanivska prison to the Ukrzaliznytsia Central Clinical Hospital № 5 in Kharkiv. Tymoshenko has also stopped the hunger strike, which she announced in protest against the cruel treatment in prison

Yulia Tymoshenko’s daughter Eugenia said her mother agreed to undergo treatment at the Kharkiv hospital if an independent doctor from the Charité clinic in Berlin - Dr. Harms - was admitted to the treatment process.

"The only thing Yulia Tymoshenko has been saying since February 14 is that treatment can take place only under the supervision of an independent doctor, not one appointed by the authorities: either by German doctors, meaning Dr. Harms, or Ukrainian doctors that Yulia Tymoshenko trusts.

The doctor believes that Tymoshenko’s treatment process will take a long period of time. “You can’t say anything for sure, but most likely it will be not less than eight weeks,” Tymoshenko's lawyer told Channel 5 citing Harms.
