The surreal row continues between London and Moscow over the responsibility for the nerve agent poisoning of Russian citizens Sergei and Yulia Skripal in Salisbury. Last week Yulia, 33, recovered from the attack and has finally spoken. In Salisbury Hospital, where she is being treated with her father, she gave a declaration to British police.
“I woke up last week and am happy to say I my energy grows every day,” said Yulia, who was visiting her father at the time of the attempted murder, which turned the clock on East-West relationships back to the ‘50s. “I thank everyone for their interest in my case and for the greetings I received.”
After expressing her gratitude to Salisbury’s citizens and medical staff for their help, she added: “I’m sure you’ll understand that what happened is somewhat disorientating, and I hope you’ll respect my and my family’s privacy during the recovery period.”
