Ukraine's former Prime Minister, Yulia Tymoshenko, has arrived in Berlin for medical treatment, a hospital official said Saturday.
The face of the pro-Western Orange Revolution in 2004, who suffers from herniated discs, started medical examinations on Saturday morning, said Karl-Max Einhaupl, director of the Charite University Hospital, Berlin.
No decision on whether she will need an operation has yet been taken, Einhaupl added.
"Tomorrow (Sunday) and Monday, we will continue our diagnosis to see what can be done," he said during a televised press conference.
