BREAKING: Russia Spy Poisoning: Yulia Skripal says Recovery is 'Slow and Painful'

Share This

Yulia Skripal, Russian, 33 In her first televised appearance, on Wednesday evening, read out statement prepared in Russia which she described her recovery as “slow and painful”. In the video released, the scar visible on her throat was to help her breathe properly following the attack. She later revealed that the attempted assassination had taken a “devastating” toll and described the clinical treatment to keep her alive as “invasive, painful and depressing”.

She admitted that she is “lucky to have survived” the nerve agent attack on her and her father and spoken of her determination “in the longer term” to return to Russia.

Ms Skripal remains in the UK, under the protection of the British authorities and of her own free will.

The Kremlin, which denies any involvement, has accused the British government of holding her captive and has repeatedly demanded access to her. As recently as the weekend, Vladimir Putin insisted that if Russian-manufactured, military-grade Novichok nerve agent had been used in the attack, then Ms Skripal and her 66-year-old father Sergei would have been killed.

Ms Skripal and her father Sergei, a former Russian double agent who now lives in the UK, were found frothing at the mouth on a bench in Salisbury on 4 March.

Skripal was on one of her regular visits to the UK to see her father.

The pair were in a coma for weeks after the attempt on their lives, and Sergei was only discharged from hospital on 18 May.
