KHARKIV - Ukraine's ex-prime minister Yulia Tymoshenko, who is undergoing treatment at a hospital in Kharkiv, is not due to be discharged any time soon, the hospital's chief doctor Mykhailo Afanasyev said.

"We are conducting the planned treatment following the recommendations given by the German doctors. To date there has been no talk about discharging her. But a hospital is not a resort. Patients are discharged depending on their health condition," he told reporters at the hospital on Tuesday.

Earlier, Tymoshenko's lawyer Serhiy Vlasenko said that she would be transferred from the Kharkiv hospital to the Kachanivska prison this weekend.
