“The treatment has resumed. Tymoshenko’s skin rash has weakened, but
no one yet knows its cause,” he told Interfax-Ukraine after visiting the
former prime minister in Ukrzaliznytsia’s Central Clinical Hospital No.
5 in Kharkiv.
He also said that repair work was being conducted on the ninth floor of the hospital, where Tymoshenko’s ward is located.
“They are conducting repairs there, and they isolated this room. I
tried to go there, but they did not let me in. But they are preparing
something there, most likely a room for video conferencing. But I
emphasize once again that this [Tymoshenko’s participation in trial via
videoconference] is illegal,” Vlasenko said.
