Medical treatment
President Leonid Kuchma is returning home from Germany, where he underwent brief medical treatment following an operation in Ukraine last November. Kuchma's press service reported that during his visit Baden Baden, the President met with "several officials" to discuss, among other things, forthcoming top-level bilateral consultations scheduled for February.

Not spoilt by rumors
"Kuchma thanks his hosts for their hospitality," the press service reported. In an interview with Interfax-Ukraine, the President of Ukraine noted that his visit to Germany "wasn't spoiled by rumors that his treatment was tragically unsuccessful". In response, the Ukrainian leader said that he takes such things "philosophically and with a sense of humor".

Stomach operation
Kuchma left for Baden Baden on 26 December 2003 to continue medical treatment following a stomach operation on 17 November. The original diagnosis was a severe intestinal blockage, and he was released from a hospital in Feofania, Kyiv region, on 7 December.
