In an emotional video appeal, recorded covertly by her lawyer with a cell phone in a hospital where she is undergoing treatment, Tymoshenko accused Yanukovych of turning Ukraine into a “police state” and her own life into “hell.”

The state prison agency retaliated by publishing a video of Tymoshenko banging her high-heeled shoe against a hospital door in order to be allowed to see her supporters.

The videos offered a rare glimpse into Tymoshenko’s life and state of health behind bars over a year after she was jailed on charges of abusing her office during natural gas import negotiations with Russia in 2009.
