The State Penitentiary Service of Ukraine has allowed former Prime Minister Yulia Tymoshenko to meet with First Deputy Head of the Batkivschyna Party Oleksandr Turchynov and EU Ambassador to Ukraine Jose Manuel Pinto Teixeira.

"At the request of the prisoner, as an exception, the permission to hold such a meeting has been granted. Tymoshenko has been informed about this decision," the press office of the State Penitentiary Service reported on Tuesday.

"We recall that doctors proposed limiting the number of meetings with the patient during her stay in hospital," the press office said. 

The Kyiv Post is disabling its online comment section due to an increase in trolls, violent comments and other personal attacks. Other news organizations worldwide have taken similar steps for the same reasons. The Kyiv Post regrets having to take this action. The newspaper believes in a robust public debate, but the discussion must be constructive and intelligent. For the time being, the Kyiv Post will allow comments on its moderated Facebook group https://www.facebook.com/groups/kyivpost/. The newspaper will consider hosting online comments again when circumstances allow. Thank you from the Kyiv Post.
