Tymoshenko to be treated at Ukrainian clinic

The 51-year-old Tymoshenko is on a hunger strike to protest the prison`s alleged mistreatment.



Kiev: German doctors who traveled to Ukraine to examine the jailed and ailing ex-Prime Minister Yulia Tymoshenko say that she agreed to treat her back condition at a local hospital.

Dr Karl Max Einhaupl said the treatment of Tymoshenko`s herniated disk will start on Tuesday.

The 51-year-old Tymoshenko is on a hunger strike to protest the prison`s alleged mistreatment of her as she serves a seven-year sentence on charges of abusing her powers when she was prime minister.

Critics have described her case as politically motivated, saying President Viktor Yanukovych, Tymoshenko`s rival in the 2010 presidential election, orchestrated her prosecution.
Government officials have denied any claims of bias in the case.
