“We discussed the political situation in Ukraine, her vision of the political situation, how she sees the development of relations between Ukraine and the EU today and in the future, and talked about her state of health,” the ambassador told journalists near Central Clinical Hospital No. 5 after a meeting with Tymoshenko on Saturday.
He noted that the former premier is in a rather depressed emotional state.
“She is quite depressed, which is understandable as she has been kept in jail for over a year, and new proceedings are instituted against her. This does not help improve the health state, as creates a nervous emotional situation. But she is a very strong woman and holds her own,” the diplomat said.
