Ex-spy Sergei Skripal released from hospital after poisoning

Former spy Sergei Skripal has been released from Salisbury Hospital, where he has been recovering from a military-grade nerve-agent attack for more than two months.

Mr Skripal and his daughter, Yulia, were both found unconscious on a bench after an attack using nerve agents associated with the Soviet Union.

British Prime Minister Theresa May has blamed Russia for the attacks, with Russian President Vladimir Putin denying Russian involvement.

Mr Putin wished Mr Skripal “good health” in a press conference with German Chancellor Angela Merkel in Sochi.

“If a military-grade poison had been used, the man would have died on the spot. Thank God he recovered and that he left (hospital),” Mr Putin said.

All three people hurt by the attack, Sergei and Yulia Skripal as well as a police officer who tried to assist them, have now been released from hospital.
