EU Ambassador to Ukraine Jose Manuel Pinto Teixeira on Saturday came to Central Clinical Hospital No. 5 to visit Yulia Tymoshenko.

EU Ambassador to Ukraine Jose Manuel Pinto Teixeira on Saturday came to Central Clinical Hospital No. 5 (Kharkiv), where ex-prime minister Yulia Tymoshenko is undergoing medical treatment, an Interfax-Ukraine correspondent has said.

He came to the territory of the hospital at around 11.00. About 30 supporters of Tymoshenko met the ambassador near the hospital.

Earlier the State Penitentiary Service of Ukraine said that it permitted the former prime minister to meet with the ambassador in response to her entreaties.

That's right, nothing worries Yanukovych; he is just a happy and ignorant village idiot.

The reality of the situation between Ukraine and the European Union and other true democracies will remain semi-frozen until after the the upcoming October elections. Outside interference regardless of its source would not be perceived as being helpful (with the possible exception of some ongoing issues). What happens next is an entirely different matter.
