Salisbury District Hospital said Mr Skripal is responding well to treatment and “improving rapidly”.
Mr Skripal, 66, and his daughter Yulia, 33, have been in hospital for more than a month after being found unconscious on a bench in Salisbury.They had been poisoned with a toxic nerve agent called Novichok.
Ms Skripal is conscious and talking in hospital.
The UK government claims Russia is behind the attack but Moscow has denied all involvement, calling the accusations “horrific and unsubstantiated”
The embassy later issued a statement wishing the Skripals “get well soon” and expressed hope that their recovery will “contribute to the investigation”.
