Poisoned ex-spy in UK no longer in critical condition, hospital says

Relations between Russia and the West have been strained after former Russian double agent Sergei Skripal and his daughter Yulia were found unconscious on a bench outside a shopping center in Britain's Salisbury on March 4.

The hospital says Yulia Skripal, 33, is conscious and in stable condition. Investigators later found that their front door showed the highest concentration of the nerve agent used against them.

A director of a British military laboratory said earlier this week that the nerve agent was definitively from the Novichok class, a type designed and manufactured by the former Soviet Union and Russian Federation.

Britain's interior ministry on Friday rejected a visa application by Sergei Skripal's niece to visit the country, because it "did not comply with the immigration rules", the Home Office said.

A British judge said last month, almost three weeks after the attack, that it might have left them with compromised mental capacity and that it was unclear whether they would recover.

A diplomatic row surrounding the incident is ongoing - the United Kingdom government claims Russian Federation is behind the attack but the Kremlin has denied all involvement, calling the accusations "horrific and unsubstantiated".

Raising a series of questions, Nebenzia said that Russian Federation was not responsible and that Moscow expected both answers and full cooperation from the British side, as well as consular access to the Skripals.

Both Moscow and London have accused each other of trying to deceive the world with an array of claims, counter-claims and threats.

At a session of the executive of the global chemical weapons watchdog this week, Russian Federation called for a joint inquiry into the poisoning of the Skripals, but lost a vote on the motion.

The worldwide furor over the poisoning of a former Russian spy and his daughter intensified, with Russia warning Britain that it was "playing with fire".

Britain and Russian Federation have expelled 23 of each other's diplomats in a dispute showing no sign of easing.

Dr Christine Blanshard, medical director at Salisbury District Hospital, said: "Following intense media coverage yesterday, I would like to take the opportunity to update you on the condition of the two remaining patients being treated at Salisbury District Hospital".

Yulia's health has improved rapidly.

"My strength is growing daily", she said in a statement released through the police.

In a postscript, the spokeswoman claimed that British defense researchers had spent decades testing nerve agents on 3,400 guinea pigs. While Skripal and his daughter are recovering in a hospital, the weeks-long absence of the animals from public sight has apparently troubled Russian Federation.

When a veterinarian was finally allowed access to the property, it was too late for the pets inside, UK Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs told multiple news outlets on Friday.
