The Local: Bildt slams Ukraine over Tymoshenko meet
Sweden's foreign minister accused the Ukrainian authorities on Saturday of illegally denying him a meeting with the jailed and hospitalised opposition leader Yulia Tymoshenko, reads The Local report.
"Tymoshenko asked to see me in accordance with the rules of the prison authorities. We are now informed that this will not be allowed," Bildt said via Twitter on Saturday.
He did not explain Ukraine's decision while arguing that the former prime minister had the right to receive visitors for four hours per month.
