Mr Skripal along with his daughter Yulia was found slumped unconscious on a bench in the city of Salisbury, on March 4.

The former GRU Colonel Sergei Skripal, is conscious and can speak, according to the Sky News television channel.

The conditions of the Skripals has continued to improve this week, with the ex-spy no longer in critical condition, the hospital treating him said, and his daughter saying Thursday her strength was "growing daily".

Thursday, April 5, in the air outreach program "60 minutes" on TV channel "Russia 1" released the alleged recording of the conversation of Julia with cousin Victoria.

It was Russia's Foreign Ministry and embassy in London that raised questions about the fate of the Skripal family pets.

Moscow has denied being responsible for the poisoning of the Skripals but the incident has plunged diplomatic relations between Russian Federation and the West into the deep freeze.

In it, Yulia said she would be discharged soon.

Its statement added: "This was attempted murder using an illegal chemical weapon that we know Russian Federation possesses".

Scientists said the Skripals had likely been treated with Atropine - a drug used to counter the effects of nerve agents - and marvelled at their partial recovery given the circumstances.

It is the first known offensive use of a nerve agent on European soil since World War Two.




"What you basically do in such cases is stabilise the life functions of the body - breathing, heartbeats - and give Atropine to counter-balance the symptoms, hoping that the body will recover", he added.

Police believe they first came into contact with the novichok agent at Mr Skripal's home, with the highest concentration found on his front door.

Britain's Prime Minister Theresa May has accused Russian Federation of poisoning Mr Skripral and his 33-year-old daughter with a deadly military-grade nerve agent, developed by the Soviet Union in the 1970s and 80s. "We have told our British colleagues that 'you're playing with fire and you'll be sorry'".

He accused London of trying "feverishly and convulsively to look for some new confirmation of their absolutely indefensible position".

"The Russians still banked on Sergei and Yulia dying as a result of their exposure, even though they had effectively watered it down".

"Now, after failing in their attempts in the United Nations and global chemical weapons watchdog this week and with the victims' condition improving, they seem to be pursuing a different diversionary tactic". "Shikhany is not one of them".

Russian Federation has said it does not have such nerve agents and President Vladimir Putin dismissed as nonsense the notion that Moscow would have poisoned Skripal and his 33-year-old daughter.

"Such a refusal is not clear for me as they both, according to the official statements by the United Kingdom side, feel good", Yakovenko was quoted as saying in the statement.

In September 2017, Russian President Vladimir Putin said Moscow had destroyed its last chemical weapons.
