You're reading: Vlasenko: Doctors’ recommendation on 8-week rest for Tymoshenko being neglected

KHARKIV – Former Ukrainian Premier Yulia Tymoshenko's defense lawyer Serhiy Vlasenko has said that the recent recommendation of the ex-premier's German doctors and the international medical commission for her treatment on the necessity to provide her with an eight-week period of rest has been neglected.

“The current authorities have been neglecting them [the
recommendations] for two weeks. We did not know to the last whether she
would be summoned to court, and yesterday they again forbade her to meet
with her defense lawyer,” Vlasenko told journalists in Kharkiv on
Tuesday, Aug.14.

Vlasenko stressed that the doctors did not recommend the ex-premier
to limit number of meetings, as they just recommended her to have an
eight-week period of rest.

He added that as soon as Tymoshenko gets better, she will attend
hearings of the criminal case on the activities of the United Energy
Systems of Ukraine (UESU) Corporation.

As reported, in July 30 doctors from the Charite Clinic in Berlin
came to Central Clinical Hospital No. 5 in Kharkiv, where Tymoshenko is
undergoing treatment.

On the same day, they asked to give Tymoshenko an eight-week period of rest.
