Salisbury NHS Foundation in the United Kingdom said that Yulia Skripal's condition is improving rapidly, and that she is now stable, The Guardian reported. "She has responded well to treatment but continues to receive expert clinical care 24 hours a day".

Her father Sergei, 66, remains in a critical but stable condition.

British authorities blamed Russian Federation for poisoning them with a military-grade nerve agent, accusations Russian Federation has vehemently denied.

Yulia Skripal, hit in a nerve agent attack that has chilled relations between Russian Federation and the West, came out of critical care yesterday following a swift improvement in her health.

The episode is at the center of a growing worldwide squabble between Western countries and Russian Federation.

Yulia Skripal, 33, is now stable in hospital after being exposed to the substance Novichok.

Two dozen countries, including the United States and many European Union nations, and North Atlantic Treaty Organisation have ordered more than 150 Russian diplomats out this week in a show of solidarity with Britain.

During a briefing organised for foreign ambassadors on the Skripal case, the Russian Foreign Ministry and the Defence Ministry stressed that all chemical weapons stockpiles in Russia had been completely destroyed in September 2017.

He also noted that the job of the global chemical weapons watchdog is to determine what chemical agent was used to poison Skripal and his daughter, not verify the British conclusions.

However, it had been then confirmed by the Organisation for the Protection of Chemical Weapons.

Around 250 counter-terrorism detectives continue to work around the clock on the investigation which is expected to continue for months.

Sergei Skripal, a former Russian military intelligence officer, was imprisoned after he sold secrets to British intelligence.

Investigators had sealed off the bench where the Skripals were found, a pub and restaurant the pair visited, and the grave of the former spy's wife. He was released in a 2010 spy swap and moved to Britain.

Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova said Thursday that Britain's allegation was a "swindle" and an "international provocation".

Meanwhile, Russia claims Britain is breaking global law by not providing them with information on Yulia Skripal.
