Ukrainian former Prime Minister Yulia Tymoshenko said Wednesday she was placed under house arrest.

"From now I am prohibited from leaving home and I can just go out for questioning in the Prosecutor General's Office," Tymoshenko said after being interrogated again on Wednesday.

She added that she would have to go for questioning every day.

Tymoshenko was charged on Monday over alleged misuse of state funds during her tenure from 2007 to 2010.

In 2001, Tymoshenko was arrested on charges of forging customs documents and smuggling gas between 1995 and 1997, but was released several weeks later.
