British authorities still questioning Sergei Skripal
After being released from the hospital, the former Russian spy is now in the hands of the British intelligence services
18 May, 2018
The former Russian spy, Sergei Skripal, who was allegedly poisoned by a Russian manufactured nerve agent in Salisbury, prompting harsh anti Russian sentiment and sanctions, diplomat expulsions, from the Western world, has been released from the hospital.
Former Russian spy Sergei Skripal, who was targeted with the novichok nerve agent, has been discharged from hospital.
Detectives were still questioning Mr Skripal on Thursday as he continued his recovery nearly 10 weeks after the attack.
A Salisbury District Hospital spokesperson said in a statement: “While these patients have now been discharged, their right to patient confidentiality remains and limits us from giving detailed accounts of the treatment these individuals received.
“However, treating people who are so acutely unwell, having been poisoned by nerve agents, requires stabilising them, keeping them alive until their bodies could produce more enzymes to replace those that had been poisoned.”
Mr Skripal’s release follows that of his daughter Yulia after both of them were poisoned in Salisbury, Wiltshire, in March.

The Duran – News in Review – Episode 6.
Almost 100 Wiltshire police officers and staff have sought psychological support after the nerve agent attack in Salisbury, the Guardian can reveal.Among those who have asked for help were officers who initially responded to the collapse of the former Russian spy Sergei Skripal and his daughter, Yulia, and those who were at or close to the various investigation sites in subsequent days and weeks.While the Skripal poisoning story has faded from much of the mainstream media news cycle, as it was increasingly exposed as a complete hoax and embarrassment for the May government, the Guardian appears to be trying to resurrect “the Russians did” Novichok narrative.
