The Interfax-Ukraine News Agency – a company belonging to the Interfax Information Services international group – has been an information provider in the political and economic information market of Ukraine since 1992.

Kharkiv – Doctor Annette Reischauer of the Charite clinic in Berlin has returned to Ukraine to attend to convicted former prime minister Yulia Tymoshenko, who is undergoing treatment in Central Clinical Hospital No. 5 in Kharkiv.

The car carrying the German doctor drove into the hospital area around 1500 on Wednesday, an Interfax-Ukraine correspondent reported.

The police refused to admit journalists and Tymoshenko's supporters to the hospital territory.

Pechersky Court in Kyiv on October 11, 2011 sentenced Tymoshenko to seven years in jail on counts of exceeding authority by signing gas contracts with Russia in 2009. She has been serving her term in Kharkiv since December 2011.

Tymoshenko is now undergoing medical treatment at a hospital in Kharkiv. German doctors have been observing her rehabilitation treatment. Doctor Reischauer earlier was Tymoshenko's attending doctor during her stay in Kharkiv hospital.
