The daughter of Ukraine’s jailed former Prime Minister Yulia Tymoshenko says she’s afraid her mother may die because of what she describes as abusive prison conditions.
Yevhenia Tymoshenko — who this month accused Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovych of seeking to “get rid of” her mother — said the former prime minister has been subjected to poor medical care and abusive conditions since she was initially jailed in August.
The 31-year-old Tymoshenko, speaking to RFE/RL in Prague, said her worries about her mother have grown ever since an alleged incident in January where prison officials took 20 minutes to respond after her mother lost consciousness in her cell.
Yulia Tymoshenko, who twice served as prime minister under the presidency of her Orange Revolution cohort Viktor Yushchenko, was handed a seven-year sentence late last year on charges of abuse of office.
In late December, she was moved to a remote women’s prison in the eastern Ukrainian city of Kharkiv. Since then, her family members and lawyers have complained of harsh prison treatment.
Say no to anti-humanitarian treatment of individuals by translating this into as many languages as possible.
