I will be out of hospital soon says nerve agent victim Yulia

Sputnik spoke to lawyer and author of "The Plot to Scapegoat Russia" - Dan Kovalik on the latest twist to the former Russian spy Sergey Skripal poisoning story.
At the United Nations Thursday, Russia's ambassador blamed everyone but his own country for the poisoning of Skripal and his 33-year-old daughter Yulia in Salisbury, England. That led to the coordinated expulsions of more than 150 Russian diplomats by British allies including the U.S., Canada, Australia and European nations. Moscow has fiercely denied its involvement in the Skripal attack and has retaliated by expelling envoys.
Mirzayanov also said it was hard to establish where the nerve agent came from but added he understood the reasons for Britain's claim.
But Moscow has hit back by expelling Western diplomats, questioning how Britain knows that Russian Federation was responsible and offering its rival interpretations, including that it amounted to a plot by British secret services.
Further Russian officials claimed that Pierce has done much to block investigations into the use of chemical weapons in Syria. In the meantime, Yulia has asked for privacy while she continues to get better - something I'd like to urge the media to respect. In the call, Yulia Skripal allegedly says she and her father are both recovering and in normal health, and that her father's health has not been irreparably damaged.
"I made this recording, that was Yulia", she said.
She said she and her father were fine and there were no life changing injuries.
As UNIAN reported earlier, United Kingdom police on Thursday issued a statement on behalf of Russian spy Sergei Skripal's daughter, the first since the pair were poisoned by a nerve agent in March. The 15-member Security Council first met over the issue on March 14 at Britain's request.
British counter-terror police have said the Skripals first came into contact with a nerve agent at the house, with the highest concentration found on the front door.
The Skripals' two guinea pigs and a cat were also victims of the poisoning, the British government said.
In 2017, Russian Federation said that it completed the destruction of some 40,000 tons of chemical weapons that it had declared to the global chemical-weapons watchdog. Nebenzia insisted that Britain is required to allow Russian Federation to cooperate in the investigation. "We have an understanding of how many of them there were, but this is a question for Britain".
After weeks of no reported change in his condition, the hospital confirmed that Skripal, who had been treated under heavy sedation, was now making fast progress. Britain says thepoisoning was carried out with a military-grade nerve agent developed by the Soviet Union. But the Foreign Office on Wednesday deleted a tweet from last month that said scientists at Britain's defense research facility, the Porton Down laboratory, had identified the substance as "made in Russian Federation".
