"At a briefing today, representatives of Yulia Tymoshenko’s defense team described the conditions of her detention as terrible. This allegation by no means reflects reality," the State Penitentiary Service said in a statement.

The service said that Tymoshenko lives in a 37.5-square-meter prison cell, together with another convict.

"The cell meets all of the European requirements and standards of detention, and it is equipped with modern appliances, a TV set, a microwave oven, and a refrigerator. There is a separate room for cooking, a bathroom with a shower enclosure and washing machine, a toilet, and a bidet," reads the report.
