KIEV, June 25 – RAPSI. The Kharkiv District Court has satisfied the prosecutor’s office's appeal and scheduled medical examination for Yulia Tymoshenko, Yulia Germanova, representative of Tymoshenko’s Batkivshchina (Fatherland) party, said.

The examination will decide if the former prime minister will be able to attend the hearings in the second criminal case against her.

The court scheduled the next hearing for July 10.

The second criminal case against her concerns her time in the mid-1990s as the head of United Energy Systems of Ukraine. Investigators accuse Tymoshenko of tax evasion, embezzling state funds and forgery, which resulted in multimillion losses for the country.

A Kiev district court already sentenced Tymoshenko in October 2011 to seven years in prison for abuse of power in signing gas contracts between Ukraine's Naftogaz and Russia's Gazprom in 2009.

The judge declared that Tymoshenko abused her position as prime minister and issued directives regarding gas contract negotiations in Moscow, which were poorly documented and lacked the government's consent.

Tymoshenko has been diagnosed with a spinal disc herniation.

German doctors have been treating her at a Kharkiv hospital since May 9.
