Yulia Tymoshenko today visited the hospital to which former Interior Minister Yuriy Lutsenko has been moved, according to Official website of Yulia Tymoshenko.

"There were so many security officers that it was impossible to pass, everything was blocked. I think they’re afraid of people seeing what condition Yuriy Lutsenko is in," Yulia Tymoshenko told journalists today.

Yulia Tymoshenko said she was unable to speak with Lutsenko, despite the promise of the chief doctor. "Unfortunately, the head physician isn’t responsible for security and permission to enter. He treats. The Ministry of Internal Affairs controls who may enter, based on instructions from the prosecutor’s office. But the fact that they’re not letting anyone see him, even his wife, is strange," she added.

Yulia Tymoshenko, referring to information from Verkhovna Rada Human Rights Commissioner Nina Karpachova, said that Yuriy Lutsenko’s health has deteriorated. "Statements by the Prosecutor General’s Office that Yuriy is ok, that his health is fine, are not true. If his condition has worsened and it’s visible to the naked eye, this means that nobody can predict what will happen to his life at any moment," she said.

"I hope that common sense prevails and Yuriy is released from custody," said Yulia Tymoshenko.
