One year ago, on March the 4th, the former Russian double-agent Sergei Skripal and his daughter Yulia were rushed to hospital after poisoned with a chemical nerve agent in the British city of Salisbury.
A US State Department official said the action is aimed at punishing Russian government for having “used chemical or biological weapons in violation of international law.”
The daughter of ex Russian spy Sergei Skripal, has appeared on camera since the pair were found slumped on a bench in Salisbury, UK. The incident is being treated as a suspected Russian chemical attack.
The declassified summary report into the attack on former Russian double agent Sergei Skripal and his daughter Yulia does not however say who was responsible for the attack.
Britain says Yulia and her father, Sergei Skripal - a former Russian spy - were poisoned with a nerve agent. London blames Moscow for the attack. Russia denies the allegation which has plunged relations with the West to a post-Cold War low.
Sergei Skripal and his daughter Yulia were found unconscious and were taken to a hospital, where for weeks they lay unconscious in critical condition. Yulia regained consciousness last week and is now in stable condition.
Former Russian double agent Sergei Skripal is no longer in critical condition and has responded well to treatment after a nerve agent attack last month, the hospital treating him said on Friday.
The confrontation between Russia and Britain over the poisoning of a spy and his daughter in England took on a rather unusual turn at the UNSC, with references to Sherlock and Alice and Wonderland bandied about.
Yulia Skripal said in statement released on Thursday by British police that her strength is growing daily and expressed gratitude to those who came to her aid.
Russian ex-spy Sergei Skripal and his daughter Yulia were left critically ill in a nerve agent attack three weeks ago that most probably took place at the front door of their home in southwestern England.
Relations between London and Moscow have crashed to a post-Cold War low after an attack on an ex-Russian spy, the first known offensive use of a nerve agent in Europe since World War Two.
Russia says it will start an investigation into the attempted murder of Yulia Skripal and the death of Kremlin critic Nikolai Glushkov on British soil while Britain blames Russia for the nerve agent attack on Yulia and her father Sergei.
