According to a report posted on the Web site of the Bloc of Yulia Tymoshenko, the ex-premier, who is held at Kachanivska penal colony in Kharkiv, has given her consent to a medical examination by independent doctors offered by the Canadian government, but she will never accede to undergo medical experiments conducted by medical personnel, who are completely dependent on the authorities, and arranged by the presidential administration.
"Yulia Tymoshenko has not been examined by doctors whom she trusts, she had no blood test done, so what a ‘necessary medical care’ are they talking about?" Soroka said.
"Even medicine students would not make an approximate diagnosis and offer treatment. It is surprising that qualified doctors are doing this. But those who make political diagnoses and provide treatment upon recommendations of the Bankova (Street) have long stained their white medical gowns," the press secretary said.
