Yulia Tymoshenko says that the State Penitentiary service is going to discharge her from hospital.

Former Ukrainian Prime Minister Yulia Tymoshenko has stated that the State Penitentiary service of Ukraine has given her a document on the completion of her treatment and discharge from hospital.

"Now, in the minutes when I am writing my statement, they are building a new cage to break me and my will, [they are installing] additional bars, taking away from me necessary things, they locked up the rest-room, and they tripled the number of my guards. The penitentiary service gave me a paper on the completion of my treatment and discharge from the hospital as more revenge for my position," reads the ex-premier's statement that was read aloud by her layer Oleksandr Plakhotniuk outside the hospital in Kharkiv and posted on the Web site of the Batkivschyna Party.
