BERLIN — Germany's renowned Charite hospital says three of its senior doctors will fly to Ukraine on Monday to resume talks about the treatment of the country's jailed former prime minister.

Yulia Tymoshenko was sentenced last year to seven years in prison for abuse of office while negotiating a natural gas contract with Russia in 2009.

She is currently receiving treatment for a spinal condition at a closely guarded hospital ward in the eastern city of Kharkiv.

Doctors from Berlin's Charite hospital have repeatedly visited her amid concerns that she isn't getting the proper treatment and is suffering allergic reactions to medication.

The hospital said in a statement Friday that its doctors will meet with Ukrainian physicians to again offer their assistance and resolve differences about how to proceed with her treatment.

The German doctors may deliberate and offer useful advice in the treatment of Yulia Tymoshenko but it will be up to the Godfather, Vito Yanukini, to make the final decision on her hospital care, until at least the end of October 2012.
