Yulia Tymoshenko says officials have confiscated two radiation-measuring devices from her hospital room during a search.
Jailed Ukrainian opposition leader Yulia Tymoshenko says officials have confiscated two dosimeters, or radiation-measuring devices, from her hospital room during a search.
In a statement, Ms. Tymoshenko, a former prime minister, said Thursday that she had been using the devices to track her own radiation levels, saying she has recorded unusually high levels in the hospital ward where she is confined with back pain.
She said she had been planning to release the devices to her supporters so they could make her findings public. She blamed Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovich for being behind the seizure of the dosimeters and any unusual radiation, saying he was the only one capable of taking such measures against her.
