Ukraine’s former Prime Minister, Yulia Tymoshenk stopped hunger striker and moved to hospital to take the treatment as Polish President Bronislaw Komorowski spoke out Wednesday against a planned boycott by some European leaders of Euro 2012 matches played in Ukraine.

Tymoshenko started to a hunger strike April 20 after saying she was attacked by three men, punched and forced to go to a hospital near Kharkiv.

Tymoshenko, 51, the country's top opposition leader, has been on hunger strike for more than two weeks to protest against alleged abuse.

Prime Minister Donald Tusk had earlier stated that the calls to boycott the Euro 2012 as "unsuitable," but he can understand why people were sympathetic of Tymoshenko's predicament.
