Yulia Skripal, who was poisoned in Britain last month along with her father, a former Russian spy, said on Wednesday she did not wish to take up the offer of services from the Russian Embassy in London.

She cautioned the media that no one else speaks for her or her father, who is still in a hospital.

Russian state television had previously played a recording of what they said was a phone call Ms Skripal had to her cousin in Russia from hospital, saying she and her father were both recovering and she expected to be discharged soon.

"Most importantly I am safe and feeling better as time goes by", she said, though she still isn't strong enough to be interviewed, she added.

"We have zero information from officials in London about what is going on with her".

Ms. Srkipal thanked staff members at the hospital where she was treated, said she was still suffering from the attack and noted that her father, while no longer in critical condition, remained in a perilous state.

According to the data, Yulia Skripal's e-mail accounts were the target of the specialists of Russian intelligence service.

"We have suspicions that she's been abducted, held against her will". Prime Minister Theresa May accused Moscow of involvement in poisoning.

Emerging from a coma after poisoning with nerve gas in the British Salisbury, Yulia Skripal made a new statement, which was published by Scotland Yard.

Yulia Skripal was discharged from hospital on Monday, more than a month after the March 4 nerve agent attack in the English town of Salisbury which has sparked a global diplomatic crisis.

"We invited the OPCW to test these samples to ensure strict adherence to worldwide chemical weapons protocols".

The Novichok class of nerve agents was developed in the Soviet Union toward the end of the Cold War, and Britain says it has evidence Russian Federation has continued to manufacture Novichok agents in the last decade.

Craig Murray, former British ambassador to Ukraine, also pointed to the peculiarities in the formulations used in the statement put out in Yulia's name.

"I have left my father in their care, and he is still seriously ill".

Sedwill also said that Russian Federation has tested means of delivering chemical agents "including by application to door handles", pointing out that the highest concentration of the chemical found after the attack was on Skripal's front door handle.

It said: "Since the poisoning of Sergey and Yulia Skripal the United Kingdom has not complied with its worldwide obligations under the Vienna Convention on Consular Relations and the bilateral Consular Convention by not allowing consular access to the Russian citizens and not providing any verifiable information on their wishes in that respect".
