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.
UK police reportedly believe they know who carried out a nerve agent attack on Sergei Skripal and his daughter. It comes as police investigate the death of a woman after she came into contact with a similar nerve agent.
Moscow was sorry to hear a nerve agent had killed a woman, and was "deeply concerned" about such toxins' presence in the UK, said Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov. But he described the case as a "British problem."
Salisbury District Hospital is treating two people for suspected exposure to an unknown substance after they were found unconscious at the weekend. It is the same facility that treated Sergei and Yulia Skripal.
British PM Theresa May has said it is "deeply disturbing" that two more people have been exposed to the Novichok nerve agent. It still remains unclear how the couple came into contact with the dangerous substance.
