(Newser) – More good news for the daughter of a poisoned former Russian spy: Yulia Skripal is out of the hospital. "This is not the end of her treatment but marks a significant milestone," says a statement from the UK's Salisbury District Hospital, per the BBC. The 33-year-old had been treated there since last month after she and her father, Sergei Skripal, were found poisoned by the nerve agent Novichok. The hospital said the elder Skripal also was improving, but not as quickly as his daughter, who will continue her recuperation at an undisclosed location. The US and Britain continue to blame Russia for the attacks, while Moscow continues to deny any involvement, notes Reuters. (Read more Yulia Skripal stories.)
