 Vlasenko Expects New Surprises from Yanukovych

Serhii Vlasenko considers the information provided by the Prison Service about not discovering toxic substances in detergents and cosmetics in the ward of Yulia Tymoshenko to be incomplete.

He said this at a press conference in Kharkiv, Ukrainian News reports. "The Prison Service, as always, provided the public with incomplete information," said Vlasenko, but declined to comment on the message of the jailers: "I am not prepared to comment on the situation."

Vlasenko noted that this situation will have a continuance and then it will be commented on in full. Meanwhile, the lawyer does not exclude that the Internet may witness another video from Tymoshenko's ward to divert attention from her campaign of civil disobedience.

"I do not exclude that Yanukovych and his team will work with their usual methods and to divert attention from the statement of Yulia Tymoshenko there will appear some other video from her ward, email boxes will be cracked once again, fakes will appear," said Vlasenko.

According to him, after the meeting Tymoshenko refused to return to her ward, Interfax-Ukraine reports. "Tymoshenko is now in a room for a meeting with the defense. She will not enter the ward where she is being held, along with another prisoner, along with illegal guards who are always present in the room," said Vlasenko.

"The guard is in the ward with her. 24 hours a day. She sleeps, and they sit near, a man is sitting next to the bed. She has breakfast - a man is sitting next to her. She has lunch - a man is sitting next to her," he added. Vlasenko said that the meeting room has a couch, table and a chair. According to him, as of 3:00 p.m. Monday the former Prime Minister refused medical treatment. "As of today, 3 p.m. - she refuses it. She clearly stated her conditions: no males among the guards, removal of illegal surveillance and removal of the guard from the prison ward where she is located," said Vlasenko.
