Russian Federation seeks to discuss spy poisoning with UK

  • Scotland Yard published statement of Yulia Skripal

Salisbury District Hospital said Skripal is responding well to treatment and "improving rapidly".

Hamish de Bretton-Gordon, a former army commander in the UK's Chemical, Biological, Radiological and Nuclear Regiment, said it was the quick thinking of medics that stopped the "cowardly attack" last month proving fatal - and called on the Government to reveal more evidence of Russian involvement. She is speaking, issuing statements and reportedly talking to relatives back home in Russian Federation on the telephone.

How can this be?

Britain's Prime Minister Theresa May has accused Russian Federation of poisoning Mr Skripral and his 33-year-old daughter with a deadly military-grade nerve agent, developed by the Soviet Union in the 1970s and 80s.

Mr Skripal, 66, and his 33-year-old daughter Yulia were left fighting for their lives in hospital after being found unconscious on a park bench in Salisbury on March 4. Currently, both Sergei and his daughter are recovering healthy. Michelle Carlin, senior lecturer in forensic and analytical chemistry at Northumbria University, said there is limited knowledge about the long-term effects of Novichok poisoning, but "neurological damage has been reported in other historic cases". "If treated quickly and promptly enough, it is possible to recover from poisoning of many compounds".

"We welcome the news of progress in Sergei Skripal's recovery", it said.

In the video, she says: 'Dear Theresa May, Please can you as a human being help us to meet our family?

Malcolm Sperrin, a medical physicist, said a long-term prognosis for the Skripals remained uncertain.

"The NHS will continue to provide ongoing care for the Skripals, both of whom are likely to have ongoing medical needs", the FCO said.

Moscow has hit back by expelling Western diplomats, questioning how Britain knows that Russian Federation was responsible and offering its rival interpretations, including that it amounted to a plot by British secret services. "We have received a request", a spokesperson for the British Foreign Office said.

Telling the meeting that she would "take no lectures" from Moscow, Ms.

The attack prompted the biggest Western expulsion of Russian diplomats since the Cold War as allies in Europe and the United States sided with May's view that Moscow was either responsible or had lost control of the nerve agent. The lab, however, could not definitely say where the agent was manufactured.

A Russian spokeswoman brought up the Skripals' cat and guinea pigs directly, Wednesday, when the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons convened a special meeting to address the incident. "It would be nice to have a clarification. P.S". His guinea pigs were discovered dead. "A cat was also found in a distressed state and a decision was taken by a veterinary surgeon to euthanise the animal to alleviate its suffering".

Viktoria Skripal has said she wanted to visit Sergei and Yulia and has applied for a United Kingdom visa. Mail had piled up in the letter box and nobody answered the door.

Sergei Skripal was a double agent who sold secrets to Britain.
