Yulia Skripal made her first public comments Thursday since being poisoned in Britain last month with her ex-Russian agent father, saying she was getting stronger by the day but shedding no new light on the incident.Earlier Thursday, Russian state TV and Interfax reported that Yulia had phoned her cousin Viktoria Skripal in Russia, saying she and her father were both recovering and that she expected to leave hospital soon.British police believe the nerve agent was left on the front door of the modest home in Salisbury where Skripal, a former colonel in Russian military intelligence who betrayed dozens of Russian agents to Britain's MI6 spy service, lived after he was exchanged in a spy swap.Moscow's ambassador to London Alexander Yakovenko said Thursday Russia had never made Novichok, the Soviet-era nerve agent which British experts say was the toxin used.Britain says there is no plausible explanation other than that Russia was behind the attack and Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson has accused Russia of running a disinformation campaign.However, even some allies have said Britain needs to provide more evidence about Russian culpability after the Porton Down head's remarks.
