Pas mal pour des morts…
The condition of Yulia Skripal, who was poisoned with a nerve agent in Salisbury along with her father, is improving rapidly, doctors have said.
Salisbury NHS foundation trust said on Thursday the 33-year-old was no longer in a critical condition, describing her medical state as stable.
Christine Blanshard, the medical director for Salisbury district hospital, said: “I’m pleased to be able to report an improvement in the condition of Yulia Skripal. She has responded well to treatment but continues to receive expert clinical care 24 hours a day.
“I want to take this opportunity to once again thank the staff of Salisbury district hospital for delivering such high-quality care to these patients over the last few weeks. I am very proud both of our frontline staff and all those who support them.”
Her father’s condition was described by the hospital as still critical but stable. Sergei Skripal, 66, a former Russian double agent, is believed to have been the main target of the attack.
The update came as Russia said it was taking tit-for-tat measures against all the nations that have expelled Russian diplomats over the attack.
In a separate development, Scotland Yard said police had placed a cordon around a children’s play area near Sergei Skripal’s home as a precautionary measure.
“Officers investigating the attempted murders of Sergei Skripal and his daughter Yulia Skripal are continuing to focus their enquiries around the Skripals’ home address,” a police statement revealed.
Il semble que le conte de fée ‘Novichok’ que nous joue le gouvernement britannique nous offre une fin heureuse – la résurrection étonnante et mystérieuse des victimes d’un « grade militaire » « cinq à huit fois plus meurtrier que le gaz VX » « agent neurotoxique » « d’un type développé par » Hollywood.
Joyeuses Pâques !
