"The decision on Tymoshenko’s transfer to a penal institution will be taken by the Prison Service in accordance with a sentence that has already come into force," reads the statement.

Earlier, Justice Minister Oleksandr Lavrynovych said that he could not forecast when Tymoshenko would be transferred from jail to a penal institution to serve her sentence.

"When the verdict comes into force, all the documents need to be drawn up, and when the courts have no more questions, there is every reason to send a person to a penal institution. As regards Tymoshenko, there are still a number of criminal cases, and the pre-trial investigation is still underway. Therefore, I cannot predict how this matter will be settled," the minister said.
