Russian Federation says it needs to study OPCW report on Skripal case

In her first statement since being discharged from hospital following the nerve agent attack in Salisbury, issued by the Met Police on her behalf, the 33-year-old said she did "not wish to avail" herself to the services of the embassy - and warned that nobody speaks for her or her father Sergei other than themselves.

The BBC's security correspondent, Frank Gardner, said in a report that he had been assured by government sources that Yulia's statement was entirely her own work.

"Most importantly, I am safe and feeling better as time goes by", she added.

The Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) said the chemical used against Sergei and Yulia Skripal was "of high purity", without mentioning the exact name of the substance which will be reserved for the complete classified report it has prepared.

"I find myself in a totally different life than the ordinary one I left just over a month ago, and I am seeking to come to terms with my prospects, whilst also recovering from this attack on me".

The declassified summary report into the attack on former Russian double agent Sergei Skripal and his daughter Yulia does not however say who was responsible for the attack.

Yulia Skripal's statement, which was distributed by London's Metropolitan Police, is important because the Russian embassy in London has criticised the British government for not allowing diplomatic staff to visit the Skripals since they were stricken.

Johnson's statement came after the global chemical watchdog confirmed Britain's finding that Sergei Skripal and his daughter were poisoned with a toxin of "high purity".

Russian Federation has consistently denied any involvement in the poisoning.

Despite initial doubts that they would not survive, Yulia Skripal was released from hospital to an undisclosed location on Monday. The text has been composed in a special way so as to support official statements made by British authorities and at the same time to exclude every possibility of Yulia's contacts with the outer world - consuls, journalists and even relatives, the embassy said.

Police identified the suspect as Paul Edward Acton Bowen and said he is the founder of the Acton Bowen Outreach Ministries. More than 20 other offenders were arrested, mainly in the USA and the United Kingdom .

The British government, which accuses Russian Federation of carrying out the attack, is likely to keep details about Ms Skripal's location secret, given the sensitivity of the case.

More than 20 countries joined Britain in blaming Russia for the attack, and expelled more than 120 Russian diplomats from their countries to retaliate.

Russia says it had no role in the attack and has demanded consular access to Ms Skripal, who has Russian nationality. Russian Federation denies this and says the nerve agent used on the Skripals could easily have been manufactured in another country.

In retaliation, Russian Federation also expelled 60 American diplomats.

They also called on United Kingdom officials to "urgently provide evidence" that Skripal was not deprived of her freedom.
