You're reading: Lawyer: Treatment of Tymoshenko’s back in hospital resumes, cause of skin rash not determined

KHARKIV – The treatment of the back complaint of former Prime Minister Yulia Tymoshenko, which was suspended due to her suffering an allergy, has resumed, her defense lawyer, Serhiy Vlasenko, has said.

“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.
