A supporter of the former prime minister is holding poster with the inscription "Free Yulia" and the flags of the Batkivschyna Party.

Kharkiv – Defense lawyer of former Prime Minister Yulia Tymoshenko, Serhiy Vlasenko, has said that the ex-premier has an unidentified skin disease, which has affected 50% of her body.

"Kharkiv doctors haven't been able to diagnose this disease," he told reporters outside Central Clinical Hospital No.5 in Kharkiv on Thursday.

He noted that the rash appeared about two weeks ago and after that doctors stopped the treatment of Tymoshenko's back pain.

Just like Yanukoyvch and Putin & Co tried to poison Yushenko, they and there supporters in the Gas business will try to kill or at least keep the lady in Jail...Putin is afraid to release her.

And the spin starts. The German 'doctor' left because he was busted on the meds and treatments of Mrs Tymoshenko. Now Vlasenko is trying to spin the good doctor's rapid exit saying she has a 'skin desease' that no one can diagnose.
As I stated earlier, bovine scatology, pure and simple.

There are 3 possible sources for this information: 1) Vitya "Mr. Potato Head" Pshonka's Office, 2) A comic book, 3) A village idiot. It's as simple as that.
