In an interview to Polish Newsweek she said: "You don't think I will talk about my health problems, do you? I am not used to doing it. But I would like to thank the German doctors that with the support of the German government and the whole EU practically forced their way into the colony where I was systemically degraded. The doctors practically saved my life. They showed great courge by undertaking my treatment in a Ukrainian hospital. Their mission was accompanied by provocations in the best traditions of Stalin. For example, letters signed by certain Ukrainian doctors from the Presidential Administration demanding to cease treatment. I have to acknowledge that the doctors and other medical personnel of the hospital where I stay - they treat me loyally and professionally".
"I cannot do many things by myself but I do not feel that I became weaker because of it. Someday I will become healthy again. But right now my thougths are preoccupied by how to free Ukraine from dictatorship. I know, I do know that it will be incredibly hard", said Tymoshenko.
