Eugenia Carr says she will use every opportunity she has to protect her mother, former Ukrainian Prime Minister Yulia Tymoshenko, according to the Official web site of Yulia Tymoshenko.

"I spoke at a meeting of the European People’s Party in the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe. This was the first time I’ve had to protect my mother. I had to do this. I felt many emotions, but I wasn’t nervous. Sitting next to her in court as her public defender, I see it all and so I have no right to remain silent," Eugenia Carr said in an interview with the newspaper "Izvestia in Ukraine."

She said that during her meetings in Strasbourg, she informed European politicians of violations during Yulia Tymoshenko’s trial. "I told them that the judge breaks the law and that the prosecutors are calling for a conviction even though there are documents in the case that prove my mother`s innocence," she said.

"We are using every change. The more we speak, the greater the hope that we will be heard," she said.

Eugenia Carr also said that Yulia Tymoshenko’s health continues to deteriorate. "The symptoms continue to develop. We don’t know what it is. My mother’s health is getting worse. Her doctor wasn’t allowed to see her, tests weren’t done, and we don’t know what can happen to her," she added.
