In an interview with RFE/RL, the 31-year-old daughter of jailed former Ukrainian prime minister, Yulia Tymoshenko, argues that her mother is facing health problems and a lack of treatment in prison.
“At the moment my mother is in a very critical state; she is kept in a cell, she cannot get up from the prison bed,” Yevhenia Carr said.
“And for the first time in the history of imprisonment, in criminal history, or [in the history] of the prisons of Ukraine, the investigation is carried out in a cell when the person is lying on a prison bed and cannot move.”
More charges have been filed today against Tymoshenko, who is already serving 7 years behind bars on charges widely criticised.
