Viktoria Skripal, niece of poisoned former spy Sergei Skripal, read out a copy of a letter to the British Prime Minister Theresa May, on the Russian talk show Pust Govoryat (Let Them Talk) Moscow on Saturday.

"As soon as I saw the refusal [in the visa], I said that I would write directly to Teresa May and the UN," revealed Viktoria.

In her letter, Viktoria appealed to the prime minister’s emotions by reminding her that, “in the epicenter of this scandal, there are real people; this is our family, which needs now to be together.”

She also commented on her recent phone call with Yulia, claiming that her cousin did not use ‘her own words’ and was told she could speak by someone else.

Former spy Sergei Skripal and his daughter Yulia were poisoned by a nerve agent in Salisbury on March 4. The UK has blamed Moscow for the incident, while the Kremlin has denied any involvement in the affair.
