Europe's anger rises at treatment of former Ukrainian PM

GERMAN PRESIDENT Joachim Gauck has cancelled a planned visit to Ukraine amid growing tensions between the European Union and Kiev over the treatment of imprisoned politician Yulia Tymoshenko.

Yesterday the EU demanded its ambassador be allowed visit the ailing Mrs Tymoshenko to investigate her allegation that she has been beaten by prison guards.

Amid growing calls for European leaders to boycott Ukraine’s Euro 2012 matches, President Viktor Yanukovych ordered an investigation into the allegations.

Mrs Tymoshenko began a hunger strike a week ago after being reportedly punched in the stomach and dragged from her bed. German doctors who examined her said she needs urgent medical treatment for a painful spinal condition and asked for permission to transport her to Berlin.
