It seems very odd that Germany would offer medical treatment to a convicted criminal that is refusing the same treatment here in Ukraine. Will they extend this magnanimous offer to all our inmates? Or, is this restricted only to those who may prove useful to Germany. Should we as citizens of Ukraine just accept that Mrs. T is above our constitution and will not be compelled to abide by it as we are? Maybe Ukraine can reduce its prison population and grant leave of absence to all inmates that may fabricate a reason to travel abroad. It must be time to grasp reality. If, and only Mrs. T knows, she is so ill, why is she refusing medical aid? She is no threat to anyone in the political world and silly stories about assassination are exactly that, silly stories. This is not America and we have not given ourselves free licence to murder who we chose, neither are we living in the 1930’s if we were she would be missing from some gulag by now.

Dear man, or woman...

As an expat, I aslo refuse any help from your &quot;doctors&quot;, as they just prescribe long lists of medication (payed by pharma industry), not to speak about their very doubtful knowledge of medicin-science !

Plus the fact that if i were to be Miss T, i would yet fear my life also !...

So, Miss T...once there, stay there, till Yanuk and his followers are gone ! Good luck to you !
