The Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) released the executive summary of its much-anticipated findings into the poisoning of Russian double agent Sergei Skripal, his daughter Yulia and an attending police officer in Salisbury, England on March 4.

Yulia Skripal says she does not wish to take up the offer of services from the Russian embassy in London.

The report comes a day after Yulia Skripal, 33, said that she had a "a totally different life than the ordinary one I left just over a month ago".

Yulia Skripal has been discharged from a hospital after more than a month, the hospital where she was receiving treatment said Tuesday.

"Most importantly, I am safe and feeling better as time goes by", she added. Nor did she want contact at this point with her cousin and closest living relative in Russia, Viktoria, who was denied a visa by the British authorities to visit her.

Yulia Skripal was visiting her father when the attack took place.

The Russian Embassy in London also issued a series of what it termed "questions without answer" about the Skripal case - including whether the United Kingdom had ever produced the Novichok nerve agent believed to have been used in the Salisbury poisoning.

Russian Foreign Ministry spokesperson Maria Zakharova said Moscow would not believe any conclusions about the poisoning unless Russian scientists were given access to the OPCW's investigation and British information.

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.

Yulia Skripal, the daughter of poisoned Russian ex-spy Sergei, has rejected offers of assistance from the Russian embassy and reiterated that "no one speaks" for her or her father. British Prime Minister Theresa May has said it is highly likely that Moscow was behind the attack.

His daughter, who lives in Moscow, was visiting him when the two were poisoned in an attack that has triggered an global diplomatic crisis between Russian Federation and the West.

The embassy expressed surprise that the statement had been published at Scotland Yard's website instead of being read out by Yulia on camera.

She said that the words in two statements are not those which would be used by a young woman and questioned whether she even has access to the internet or TV.

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

The worldwide chemical watchdog is preparing to release its report on the nerve agent used to poison a former spy and his daughter in southwestern England as Russian Federation continues to deny suggestions that it was behind the attack. "If British authorities are interested in assuring the public that this is not the case, they must urgently provide tangible evidence that Yulia is all right and not deprived of her freedom".

The Skripals were found collapsed on a park bench in Salisbury, Wiltshire, on March 4th.

She also distanced herself from her cousin Viktoria, who has spread conspiracies over the nerve agent attack.
