Former Ukrainian Prime Minister Yulia Tymoshenko has stated that the State Penitentiary service of Ukraine has given her a document on the completion of her treatment and discharge from hospital.

"Now, in the minutes when I am writing my statement, they are building a new cage to break me and my will, [they are installing] additional bars, taking away from me necessary things, they locked up the rest-room, and they tripled the number of my guards. The penitentiary service gave me a paper on the completion of my treatment and discharge from the hospital as more revenge for my position," reads the ex-premier's statement that was read aloud by her layer Oleksandr Plakhotniuk outside the hospital in Kharkiv and posted on the Web site of the Batkivschyna Party.
