Yulia Skripal Gives First Interview After Alleged Poisoning

Yulia speaks to Reuters in her first media appearance since being released from a hospital in March.

Yulia Skripal, who has claimed to have been poisoned by Russia, together with her father Sergei Skripal, gave an interview to Reuters, according to a video released by the agency on Wednesday.

According to the news agency, Yulia expressed gratitude to the Russian Embassy in the UK, which had offered her assistance, but explained that she "doesn't wish to avail herself of their services."

Looks like in their sloppiness the media have been publishing the photographs of two different persons all along.

I think it is the same girl!

She has just lost some weight but the structure of her face, eyebrows, nose, mouth etc. are fundamentally the same.

Quoting from the comments section:

I've seen a lot of people complaining about the pre-written statement, but Yulia is just a regular person and has no experience with public speaking - of course the speech is going to be learned by heart and rehearsed, there's nothing wrong with that. However, when you actually hear it in Russian, it sounds very unnatural, and it's not the formal style of the message which is at fault - it's the vocabulary and the syntax she uses. Her speech can be easily translated on the fly from Russian to English, without even hearing the end of the sentence, which is ridiculous! Russian and English languages do not align that way, they have entirely different structures, word order and so on. There's no doubt that the speech was written in English first and that makes me question things.

My wife understands and speaks some Russian and she said the same thing. Also, the Russians like the Poles, refer to first cousins as 'sister' which makes her phone call to Viktoria more likely to be authentic as she used the sister expression.
