Skripal and her father, former Russian spy Sergei Skripal, have been in the hospital one month now. They were both attacked in Salisbury with a nerve agent. The UK maintains that Moscow was involved in the poisoning – a claim the Kremlin denies.
Yulia Skripal has spoken for the first time since she and her father were poisoned by a nerve agent in Salisbury in March. Skripal said her recovery had been "slow and painful" and she one day hoped to return to Russia.
The daughter of former Russian spy Sergei Skripal won't be accepting the assistance of the Russian embassy. Yulia Skripal says she is "seeking to come to terms" with her "prospects" and her father is still seriously ill.
The UK's OPCW representative said Russia "attacked the reputation" of the OPCW chemical weapons watchdog. It comes after an OPCW report confirmed UK findings on the chemical used in the poisoning of an ex-Russian spy.
Alexander Yakovenko says Moscow would accept the results of the OPCW investigation but only if the process was transparent. Meanwhile, Yulia Skripal released a statement saying that she was growing stronger.
