Former Ukrainian prime minister, leader of the Batkivschyna Party Yulia Tymoshenko may be transferred from Kharkiv hospital, where she is undergoing treatment, to Kachanivska penal colony, a source close to the prison service told Interfax-Ukraine.

A traffic police car is currently standing at a turn to the hospital, an Interfax-Ukraine correspondent reported.

The agency doesn't have any official confirmation or denial of this information yet.

A visit from Nobel Peace Prize laureate, Aung San Suu Kyi of Myanmar (Burma), would be most appropriate about this time. It would allow Yulia Tymoshenko to thank her for her past, present and future support and it would also provide Vitya with something else to think about. It is high time that he went to Spain to deal with his stomach ulcers.
