"They continue maltreating her. A surveillance video camera is installed over her bed and she is under surveillance 24 hours a day. This was done in order to execute Yanukovych’s order and sneer at Ukraine’s opposition leader. I can also say that the light is pointed straight to her bed and is on 24 hours a day. So, Yulia Volodymyrivna had scarcely any sleep for three days," he told reporters on Tuesday in the prison building.

Vlasenko noted that Tymoshenko’s health had not improved.

"She doesn’t receive any medical aid. She occasionally gets painkiller injections. But she has bruises, the cause of which we do not know. We will therefore continue to press for an independent test of her blood," he stressed.
