Yulia Skripal has made her first public comment since being poisoned in Britain last month along with her ex-Russian spy father Sergei, saying the “entire episode is somewhat disorientating”.
Yulia Skripal said her “strength is growing daily” and thanked hospital staff
Russia’s ambassador to Britain says it has offered consular assistance to Ms Skripal
UK authorities say Ms Skripal is aware of the offer, but is yet to take it up
The Skripals were found slumped on a bench in the southern English city of Salisbury on March 4 in a nerve agent attack that the British Government has blamed on Russia, although Moscow denies any involvement.
“I woke up over a week ago now and am glad to say my strength is growing daily,” Ms Skripal said in a statement issued by London police.
