Yulia Skripal, the victim of nerve-agent poisoning and daughter of Ex-Russian spy Sergei Skripal expressed her gratitude towards people who supported her and her father.

Addressing her first media interaction after getting discharged from the hospital, the 33-year-old reportedly said that she regained consciousness over a week ago and is now recovering well.

She further acknowledged the support given to them by the residents of Salisbury where both Sergei and Yulia were found slumped on a park's bench following a nerve-agent attack on March 4.

Yulia also appreciated the treatment and care provided to her and her father by Salisbury District Hospital where both of them were admitted.

The Russian embassy in the United Kingdom had earlier requested the consular access to Yulia and Sergei Skripal but it had been denied.

Sergei Skripal has now been declared as 'stable' and 'out of danger' by the hospital staff.
