According to the press service of the State Penitentiary Service, on the night of January 5 the head of Kachanovskaia colony received a claim from Tymoshenko about the threat to her health and life during her stay in Ukrzaliznytsia hospital.
"In particular, the statement says that allegedly unauthorized persons could be adding toxic substances to detergents and cosmetics," said the statement.
In this regard, the colony management conducted an investigation "which denies the presence of unauthorized persons in the protected zone of the hospital."
