Ukrainian ex-PM Tymoshenko released from German hospital

Ukrainian ex-PM Tymoshenko released from German hospital

PanARMENIAN.Net - A Berlin hospital that has been treating Yulia Tymoshenko says the former Ukrainian prime minister has been released from their care and plans to return to Kyiv.

The Charite hospital said in a statement Wednesday, March 19, the 53-year-old received two injections into her spinal column as part of treatment for three slipped discs she suffered while imprisoned.

It says the injections have "drastically reduced" her pain and improved function in her right leg. She has also undergone "intensive" physiotherapy, which doctors are recommending she continues in Ukraine. Tymoshenko, who arrived for treatment on March 7, was expected to leave later in the day.

She was freed last month after pro-Russian President Viktor Yanukovych fled Ukraine.

Tymoshenko holds no post in Ukraine's new government but is believed to wield behind-the-scenes influence.
