KHARKIV – Former Ukrainian Premier Yulia Tymoshenko's defense lawyer Serhiy Vlasenko has said that the recent recommendation of the ex-premier's German doctors and the international medical commission for her treatment on the necessity to provide her with an eight-week period of rest has been neglected.

"The current authorities have been neglecting them [the recommendations] for two weeks. We did not know to the last whether she would be summoned to court, and yesterday they again forbade her to meet with her defense lawyer," Vlasenko told journalists in Kharkiv on Tuesday, Aug.14.

Vlasenko stressed that the doctors did not recommend the ex-premier to limit number of meetings, as they just recommended her to have an eight-week period of rest.

He added that as soon as Tymoshenko gets better, she will attend hearings of the criminal case on the activities of the United Energy Systems of Ukraine (UESU) Corporation.

As reported, in July 30 doctors from the Charite Clinic in Berlin came to Central Clinical Hospital No. 5 in Kharkiv, where Tymoshenko is undergoing treatment.

On the same day, they asked to give Tymoshenko an eight-week period of rest.
