Sergei Skripal, a former colonel of Russia's GRU military intelligence service who also worked for UK intelligence and his daughter Yulia have been in hospital in critical condition since March 4.

London has stated that it was "highly likely" that Moscow was behind the attack.

Over 140 Russian diplomats from more than 25 countries, including many EU members and the US, were expelled over Moscow's alleged involvement in the incident.

Moscow has strongly rejected the accusations and offered assistance in London's investigation into the Skripal case.
