Sergei Skripal, the former Russian spy and British double agent who was poisoned in England, has been discharged from a Salisbury hospital more than two months after he was exposed to a lethal nerve agent developed by Russia.
“It is fantastic news that Sergei Skripal is well enough to leave Salisbury District Hospital,” said Cara Charles-Barks, chief executive of Salisbury NHS Foundation Trust.
Yulia Skripal was discharged from the hospital in early April.
Noting that her father was still in critical condition, Yulia Skripal said, “I too am still suffering with the effects of the nerve agent used against us. I find myself in a totally different life than the ordinary one I left just over a month ago, and I am seeking to come to terms with my prospects, whilst also recovering from this attack on me.”
Sergei Skripal is a retired military intelligence colonel who was convicted in Russia of telling British intelligence the identities of Russian spies working in Europe.
