Yulia Skripal, the daughter of the former Russian spy who, along with her father, was poisoned in the United Kingdom has been released from the hospital, according to Reuters.

Yulia Skripal and her father, Sergei Skripal, were poisoned by a military-grade nerve agent more than a month ago. The attack is believed to have been orchestrated by Russia.

The United Kingdom — along with the U.S. and a number of other nations — has expelled Russian diplomats in response to the attack. Russia has denied it was behind the poison attack and responded to the expulsions by also expelling diplomats.


The father and daughter were in critical condition for weeks after the attack and doctors for a while thought that they might have suffered brain damage if they survived the attack.

However, both seem to be recovering rapidly and Sergei Skripal is expected to be discharged in the future, according to Reuters.

Yulia Skripal is expected to continue treatment and has been taken to a secure location, the BBC reported
