EU ambassador to Ukraine denied visit with Yulia Tymoshenko
EU Ambassador to Ukraine José Manuel Pinto Teixeira was prevented today from visiting opposition leader Yulia Tymoshenko in the Kharkiv hospital where she is being treated, according to Official web site of Yulia Tymoshenko. “For nearly 10 months I have been waiting for permission from the Ukrainian authorities to visit Yulia Tymoshenko. Every time there is a different reason,” Ambassador Pinto Teixeira said while speaking to the press outside the hospital.
He left a letter he wrote to the ex-premier with representatives of the Batkivshchyna Party in Kharkiv hoping that they will be able to deliver it through the administration of the Kachanivska prison.
