  • Poisoned Ex-Russian Spy Is Discharged From UK Hospital

Sergei Skripal, the ex-spy who more than two months ago was poisoned with a nerve agent, has been released from a United Kingdom hospital.

The former Russian double agent and his daughter were attacked in the southern English city of Salisbury on March 4 and found slumped over on a park bench.

"While these patients have now been discharged, their right to patient confidentiality remains and limits us from giving detailed accounts of the treatment these individuals received", the hospital said in a statement.

"It is fantastic news that Sergei Skripal is well enough to leave", Salisbury District Hospital's chief executive Cara Charles-Barks said in a statement.

They have been taken to an undisclosed location for their safety.

The British government has accused Russian Federation in the production and accumulation of the agent, and the training of "special units" to use against the enemies of Russian Federation.

Both Yulia, and DS Nick Bailey, who was also exposed to the nerve agent when he first arrived on the scene, have already been discharged.

Charles-Barks added: "This has been a hard time for those caught up in this incident - the patients, our staff and the people of Salisbury".

Mr Skripal, 66, and his daughter Yulia Skripal, 33, were both poisoned with the deadly nerve agent novochok in Salisbury, Wilts.

Supporting Britain, NATO and the European Union have both condemned the attack.

Hospital nursing director Lorna Wilkinson said treating the Skripals was "a huge and unprecedented challenge".

The Skripals were in a critical condition for weeks and doctors at one point feared that, even if they survived, they might have suffered brain damage.

The British government blamed Russian Federation for the attack but the Kremlin denies any involvement.

The Metropolitan Police said its investigation into the attack continued and it would not "be discussing any protective or security arrangements that are in place".

"This is a complex investigation and detectives continue to gather and piece together all the evidence to establish the full facts and circumstances behind this awful attack".

Skripal is a retired military officer formerly of the Russian GRU, or military intelligence.

He was pardoned in 2010 by then-President of Russia Dmitry Medvedev and subsequently released as part of a swap with three other prisoners in exchange for 10 Russian spies held by the U.S.
