Former Ukrainian interior minister Yuriy Lutsenko, who was released from prison by the president's pardon, was successfully operated in the Oberig Clinic on Tuesday, the press service of the People's Self-Defense Party said referring to the ex-minister's wife.

"Lutsenko has been successfully operated on, and has already come out from the anesthetic and can communicate," the press service informed.

The party earlier reported that Lutsenko was to undergo surgery at the Kyiv-based Oberig Clinic on April 16, Interfax-Ukraine informed.

People's Self-Defense Party's spokeswoman Larysa Sarhan said that Lutsenko had been hospitalized since the beginning of last week.

At the same time, Sarhan did not specify what kind of surgery Lutsenko would undergo.
