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.
