Eugenia Tymoshenko: my mother agreed to compromise for benefit of Ukraine's future
Eugenia Tymoshenko, daughter of former Prime Minister Yulia Tymoshenko, says her mother has agreed to the offer of the European Parliament's envoys to go abroad for medical treatment for the sake of Ukraine's European future, according to the Official web site of Yulia Tymoshenko.
"Her decision was mainly based on the fact that Ukraine is living through this historical time when Ukraine should decide, and must take the step of joining the European family. It was to make sure that the signing is not blocked or stalled because of her decision to stay," Eugenia Tymoshenko said in an interview with Reuters.
Yulia Tymoshenko's daughter said it was very hard for her to make this decision. "But she has now made the decision and now we are waiting for the decision from the president," she said.
Eugenia Tymoshenko hopes the two years of "psychological torture" of her mother will end by November 19 and she will go to Germany for medical treatment.
