"As far as I know, she did not faint… she felt dizzy after her blood pressure dropped," Lisitskov told reporters on Wednesday.

According to him, on Jan. 6, Tymoshenko was taking shower for about half an hour after which "she felt unwell and asked her inmate to bring a doctor."

"A duty doctor and a nurse came within four minutes. They measured her pulse, and found that her blood pressure was really low. They gave her an injection and offered to use a drip. Then, within five to ten minutes, the pressure stabilized to about 100 to 60," Lisitskov said.
