on social media

“In the late afternoon of July 24 the EU Delegation learned about the information published by the State Penitentiary Service of Ukraine Web site whereby the State Penitentiary Service did not grant permission for a visit by Head of the European Union Delegation to Ukraine, Ambassador Jose Manuel Pinto Teixeira to Mrs. Yulia Tymoshenko. A few hours later such information was replaced on the Web site with another statement of the State Penitentiary Service according to which the State Penitentiary Service, as an exception, did grant permission for such a meeting,” the EU Delegation to Ukraine said in a statement on Wednesday.

At the same time, the EU Delegation said that it had received no official information by the Ukrainian authorities on the abovementioned permission.

“Consequently, no possible date for the visit to Mrs. Tymoshenko was officially communicated to the EU Delegation,” reads the statement.
