After more than two months, 66 Der Former Russian spy Sergei Skripal was released from hospital after being poisoned by a military mental health officer, UK officials said Friday.
The former Russian double agent and his daughter were attacked in the southern English city of Salisbury
A month after the attack, British officials said that Skripal was no longer in critical condition because he had joined his daughter in a recovery which could lead the couple to help investigators solve the mystery of exactly how, where, and by whom they were poisoned.
"It is fantastic that Sergei Skripal is good enough to leave the Salisbury District Hospital," said Cara Charles-Barks, the hospital's managing director, in a statement
Malcolm Sperrin, a medical physicist, had warned in April that a long-term forecast for the Skripals remains somewhat uncertain. Referring to Yulia, he said, "She could talk and talk, but what we do not know is whether she will go back to where she was before the event, not just about knowledge, but there are other aspects that could be influenced such as mobility, mental health issues, anxiety, depression, there are so many unknowns. "
In response to the March attack, British Prime Minister Theresa May condemned poisoning as ruthless and hostile acts by Russia on British soil. She and her government say Russia is suspicious of forensic evidence because it has previously murdered critics overseas.
Skripal was a double agent selling secrets to Britain. He was sentenced and imprisoned in Russia, but was released in 2010 in an exchange for intelligence agents.
The British Foreign Ministry issued a statement in April saying, "Let's face it, this was an attempted murder with an illegal chemical weapon.
But Russia denies having anything to do with the attack. As Russian diplomats insisted that Britain either overturned or botched the investigation – or that British agents themselves poisoned the father and daughter to smear Russia, they justify increases in military spending or distractors of failures Brexit negotiations.
