You're reading: Vlasenko: Tymoshenko to be discharged from hospital by force
on social media

“This morning they transported the cellmate of Yulia Volodymyrivna to
an unknown destination, they did not take her to the Kachanivska prison
and we don’t know where she is now. They took her things and took her
away within half an hour,” Vlasenko told journalists near the hospital
on Tuesday.

The lawyer thinks that this fact confirms that the information
received from sources in the Security Service of Ukraine (SBU) and the
Prosecutor General’s Office of Ukraine (PGO) was trustworthy and that
its is planned to remove Tymoshenko from the hospital by force to make
her attend a court hearing of the criminal case on the activities of the
United Energy Systems of Ukraine (UESU) Corporation on August 14.

Vlasenko also said that Tymoshenko sent letters to Head of the
Kachanivska Penal Colony Ivan Pervushkin and Prosecutor General of
Ukraine Viktor Pshonka and asked them to confirm or reject reports of
the alleged intention to transport her from the hospital “using rough
physical force.”
