KLITSCHKO URGES WESTERN MEDICAL TREATMENT FOR JAILED FORMER PM TYMOSHENKO

Radio Free Europe on June 23, 2013, reported that Vitali Klitschko, world heavyweight boxing champion and leader of the opposition Ukrainian Democratic Alliance for Reforms (Udar), has called on the government to allow jailed former Prime Minister Yulia Tymoshenko to undergo medical treatment in Germany. Excerpts below:

Klitschko made the comments in an exclusive interview with RFE/RL’s Ukrainian Service on June 21, following a meeting in Kyiv with German Foreign Minister Guido Westerwelle.

Klitschko said any decision on Tymoshenko depends only “on one person,” Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovych.

Klitschko also said Westerwelle advised Ukraine’s opposition to unite its efforts and back a single candidate in the 2015 presidential election.
