According to London, former Russian military intelligence (GRU) Colonel Sergei Skripal, 66, who had been convicted in Russia of spying for Great Britain and later swapped for Russian intelligence officers, and his daughter Yulia, 33, suffered the effects of an alleged nerve agent in the British city of Salisbury on March 4.

May's tweet with the picture of Bath, a nearby city known for its Roman-built baths, was later changed to show a picture of her Downing Street office.

The prime minister met neighbours of victim Sergei Skripal and visited businesses and the historic cathedral with local MP John Glen.

Prime Minister Theresa May hailed Monday as "an important milestone" for the city as it emerges from the "shadow" cast by the chemical attack.

Counter-terrorism police said they still do not know what happened to the container which held the deadly nerve agent - a counterfeit bottle of Nina Ricci perfume - between March 4 and when Mr Rowley said he found it on June 27.

British authorities say they have completed the cleanup of the southwestern English city of Salisbury, where a former Russian spy was poisoned with a nerve agent.

Wiltshire Police Detective Sergeant Nick Bailey was also treated after coming into contact with the substance when he tried to help the pair. A spokesperson blamed "human error" for the mistake, which was later corrected.

The father-daughter duo and the police officer survived after weeks in critical conditions. Officials said they were taken to a secret location after they got out of the hospital.

Intelligence services continue to believe it was ordered at "the highest level in the Russian state", the source said.

However, the spokeswoman denounced, the United Kingdom mounted a campaign of accusations against Russian Federation, which was accused of being responsible for the alleged chemical attack with a substance called Novichok (Novato), although later learned about its use by Western nations.

The Russian Embassy in the the United Kingdom released a 52-page report Monday posing dozens of "unanswered questions" about what happened in Salisbury, and citing what it calls "inconsistencies in the British narrative". Claiming that the substance used in the attack had been a Novichok-class nerve agent developed in the Soviet Union, London rushed to accuse Russian Federation of being involved in the incident.

It also reiterated Moscow's denial that Russian Federation was the source of the nerve agent, and accused British authorities of "secretiveness and lack of clarity" about the attack.

Sergei Skripal and his daughter Yulia were discovered collapsed on a park bench near a shopping mall on March 4, 2018.
