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.
