Jailed Ukrainian opposition leader Yulia Tymoshenko on Thursday accused President Viktor Yanukovich of using Stalinist methods against her after prison officials confiscated devices which she said revealed high radiation levels in her hospital quarters.
The former prime minister accused Yanukovich, her political foe, of being behind the unusually high dosages of radiation in her hospital ward.
“Only he is capable now of taking special measures against my health and my life,” she said.
Tymoshenko made her allegations in a statement on her party’s website after prison officials carried out a search of her hospital room in the city of Kharkiv, where she is confined with back trouble, and took away some of her possessions
