"We’re very grateful for the fact that the European community and the leaders of the European Union leaders support and are concerned for us. But now we want to tell them that a critical moment has come and that her [Yulia Tymoshenko’s] life is in danger… I will travel to Strasbourg, to Britain, to different countries, perhaps, to Denmark, in general, wherever I’m received and where I can speak about the ongoing injustice. I cannot restrict myself to talking about the political situation, because the issue now concerns a threat to her life," she said in an interview with Deutsche Welle published on Monday.
She described the situation with her mother as "the absolutely obvious physical destruction of the one person who has been the sole opponent of the regime of [Ukrainian President Viktor] Yanukovych" and "this is why she is being held in prison."
As evidence, the daughter of the former prime minister recalled the events of Jan. 6, when Yulia Tymoshenko fell unconscious after taking medicines, but the doctor did not come after a call for more than 20 minutes and even then refused to call an ambulance.
