Dr. Lutz Harms of Berlin’s Charité clinic doesn’t recommend that former Prime Minister Yulia Tymoshenko be delivered to the Kyivsky District Court of Kharkiv, which on July 10 will continue to hear the fabricated case against the ex-premier regarding the activities of United Energy Systems of Ukraine from 1997-1998, according to Official web site of Yulia Tymoshenko.

"We are seeing a slight steady improvement. However, we have been treating Tymoshenko for only 6 weeks after she ended her hunger strike. Her health depends on a number of factors. We are seeing improvement, but will monitor how the disease progresses," said the doctor.

Dr. Harms stressed that effective treatment is impossible in a short period of time. "We are also not happy with this situation, but in this case, when the disease has become chronic because it wasn’t treated for several months, it’s impossible to expect any breakthroughs in a few weeks," he said.

Today, in the presence of her lawyer Serhiy Vlasenko, Yulia Tymoshenko met with former European Parliament President Pat Cox, who, together with former Polish President Aleksander Kwasniewski, has been authorities by the European Parliament to monitor the trials against Yulia Tymoshenko. The meeting lasted about half an hour.

At the last hearing on June 25, Judge Kostyantyn Sadovsky announced a break until July 10 and ordered that a medical forensic examination be carried out to determine the state of Yulia Tymoshenko’s health and ensure her presence at the show trial over which he is presiding.

On June 25 there was already a special glass box in the courtroom made especially for Yulia Tymoshenko, inside of which were two tables, chairs, filing cabinets, a microphone, fresh flowers and paintings. There was even a plasma TV showing footage from court surveillance cameras – a first in court history.
