The Ukrainian State Penitentiary Service has posted a photocopy of a document entitled 'Report on the convict Yulia Volodymyrivna Tymoshenko's refusal to undergo medical examination' on its official website to prove that the former prime minister insisted on receiving inpatient treatment at the Charite clinic in Germany. "Yulia Tymoshenko has categorically declined the proposal that she be examined by [Health Ministry] specialists and receive the recommended treatment, including conservative and rehabilitating, and insisted on inpatient treatment at the Charite clinic in Germany," the document says.

The document also says that Tymoshenko's health status is satisfactory. "Her conscience is clear, contacts productive, she is moving around the room using a walking frame, and gradually expanding her motion abilities," the report says.

The paper also mentions that Tymoshenko refused to undergo medical examination on March 12 and that she was informed of the conclusions made based on her examination by the members of an international medical panel on March 7.

The report apparently cites the program of Tymoshenko's treatment, although its text is blocked from the readers.

The report is dated March 12, 2012, but it is unclear who signed it.

It was reported earlier that Tymoshenko's lawyer Serhiy Vlasenko had accused the State Penitentiary Service of spreading "open lies and provocation" by claiming that Tymoshenko demanded treatment in Germany.

The report by the penitentiary service is spot on when it says "her conscience is clear"; the question is; is their conscience clear, and is Yanukovych's conscience clear?
