Ukraine's former prime minister Yulia Tymoshenko is meeting with her daughter Yevheniya in the Kachanivska penal colony, Ivan Pervushkin, the head of the colony, told reporters on March 9.
The colony has nine rooms for long visits, including two "suit" rooms, he said. The room where Tymoshenko is meeting with her daughter is equipped with household appliances, including a microwave oven, an electric teapot, a refrigerator and a TV set.
The meeting will last until 9:00 a.m. on March 12.
The cost of one meeting day costs Hr 70 (some $9) per bed.
"That makes it Hr 140 a day," Pervushkin said.
At the same time, Tymoshenko's defense lawyer Serhiy Vlasenko, who entered the territory of the colony with Yevheniya Tymoshenko, has denied the information that the meeting between Yulia Tymoshenko and her daughter has begun.
The press service for the State Penitentiary Service reported on March 9 that Yulia Tymoshenko continues to refuse to follow the living rules of the Kachanivska penal colony and is not wearing inmate uniform.
"I refuse to follow the regulations and work in the colony because I already have a job - I am chairman of the party Batkivschyna. I also refuse to wear prison uniform," Tymoshenko said in her address to the colony administration.
