Ex-Russian Spy Sergei Skripal Discharged From UK Hospital 0

Sergei Skripal, the former Russian spy and British double agent who was poisoned in England, has been discharged from a Salisbury hospital more than two months after he was exposed to a lethal nerve agent developed by Russia.

“It is fantastic news that Sergei Skripal is well enough to leave Salisbury District Hospital,” said Cara Charles-Barks, chief executive of Salisbury NHS Foundation Trust.

Hospital officials say Skripal, 66, will continue his recovery elsewhere. He was found slumped over on a bench on March 4 along with his 33-year-old daughter, Yulia Skripal.

Yulia, 33, recovered more quickly than her father and was discharged last month.
