LONDON, April 10. /TASS/. The Russian Embassy in London has demanded that the UK provide evidence at an early date that everything that is being done to Yulia Skripal is done on her own free will.

"We congratulate Yulia on her recovery. Yet we need urgent proof that what is being done to her is done on her own free will," the embassy said in a statement.

Dr. Christine Blanshard, the Medical Director at Salisbury District Hospital, confirmed earlier in the day that Yulia Skripal had been discharged from the hospital. She also noted that her father, former Russian military intelligence Colonel Sergei Skripal, had "made good progress."

On March 4, former Russian military intelligence Colonel Sergei Skripal, 66, who had been convicted in Russia of spying for Great Britain and was later swapped for Russian intelligence officers, and his daughter Yulia, 33, were found unconscious on a bench near the Maltings shopping center in Salisbury, the UK. Police said they had allegedly been exposed to a nerve agent.

London immediately accused Russia of being involved, but failed to produce any evidence. British Prime Minister Theresa May rushed to blame Russia for "unlawful use of force" against her country. She identified the alleged substance used in the attack as the so-called Novichok nerve agent, allegedly developed in the former Soviet Union. Russia has flatly rejected these allegations pointing out that neither the Soviet Union nor Russia had any programs to develop that substance.
