Under UK protection, poisoned ex-spy's daughter refuses Russian consular help

Sergei Skripal and daughter Yulia were poisoned

Zakharova charged that British officials were keeping Skripal's daughter in isolation.

Its ambassador Alexander Yakovenko called Britain's response "quite odd, to put it mildly" as he criticised the UK's refusal to grant consular access to Ms Skripal.

Meanwhile, the worldwide chemical weapons watchdog is to publish its report into the attack tomorrow, the UK's Foreign Office has said.

Karen Pierce told reporters at United Nations headquarters on Thursday that the U.K. has also asked the director-general of the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons to call an executive council meeting next Wednesday. In a tweet on Tuesday, the Russian embassy in the United Kingdom asked for "urgent proof that what is being done to her is done on her own free will".

The poisoning of ex-GRU Colonel Sergei Skripal and his daughter Yulia in Salisbury, UK on March 4 was quickly blamed on Russian Federation by UK Prime Minister Theresa May, leading to a sharp deterioration in diplomatic ties.

The UK government has said that its analysis by military experts at Porton Down showed they were affected by novichok - a military grade nerve agent developed by Russian Federation. Without any evidence, the government of Prime Minister Theresa May mounted a hysterical campaign asserting that Russian Federation was responsible for an "attempted murder" on British soil.

Independent chemical weapons inspectors have produced evidence bolstering the UK's claim that Russian Federation was behind the poisoning of a former spy and his daughter.

Johnson told German broadcaster Deutsche Welle on March 20 that "the people from Porton Down" were "absolutely categorical" that the source of the nerve agent used against the Skripals was Russian Federation.

"Mr. Skripal and his daughter were poisoned with a military-grade nerve agent of a type developed by Russian Federation", specifically from the Novichok group, British Prime Minister Theresa May said following an immediate assessment by British experts. "We have every reason to see such actions as the abduction of two Russian nationals", Yakovenko said.

Others include intelligence that Russia has made nerve agents and studied how to use them for assassinations, and the view of Russian President Vladimir Putin's government that traitors are legitimate targets.

U.K. Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson welcomed the OPCW's report, saying tests in four independent laboratories around the world all returned the same results.

The OPCW does not have the power to identify the source of the nerve agent, only to spell out its chemical properties.

In a letter to Nato, Sir Mark Sedwill also said Russian Federation trained "special units" to use nerve agents, including applying them to door handles.

The Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons did not name the nerve agent as Novichok, but said it agreed with the UK's findings on its identity.

"Until that time, I want to stress that no-one speaks for me, or for my father, but ourselves", she said.

If the pair were secretly resettled, the opportunity to hear their version of events would be lost, the embassy said. The poisoning is being investigated by British authorities as attempted murder.

The 33-year-old, who was discharged from hospital on Monday, said her father is "still seriously ill".

Skripal said she was not yet strong enough to give a media interview and she said a cousin who had spoken to Russian media did not speak for her or for her father.

The Skripals were in a critical condition for weeks after the March 4 attack before their health improved.
