At a press conference on Monday, he said that Tymoshenko’s spine problems were caused neither by cancer nor by infection. This is the disease, which people aged over 40 often get, he said.
Polischuk expressed surprise at the fact that three months of the ex-premier’s treatment hadn’t produced any result. "Either she gets poor treatment, that there is no effect, or they cannot apply the appropriate treatment," he said adding that the treatment should be conducted in a specialized hospital, not in jail or in prison.
"We have information that Yulia Tymoshenko was allegedly given GHB – sedative medication that is not used in the West, but is used only in the CIS countries," the former health minister has said.
