That's good news, she wasn't given much hope at one time.

The BBC (see extract below) are saying that Yulia was here on a visit to see her father. Her Aunt has been refused entry for a visit.

I find it very interesting that the Novichock trail was found to have started at Skripal's home. He has been here for ten years without incident then someone tries to kill him while his Russian daughter is here.
Who is blamed for the attempt? Russia.
Yulia Skripal flew into Heathrow Airport from Russia on Saturday, 3rd March, the following day they are both in hospital.
The attempt to kill Mr Skripal failed, the government won't allow Ms Skripal's cousin, Viktoria Skripal to visit. Perhaps they suspect she is coming to finish the job.

A diplomatic crisis between Russia and the West has followed the attack in Salisbury, with more than 20 countries expelling Russian envoys in solidarity with the UK.
On Saturday, the Foreign Office described a Russian request for a meeting with Mr Johnson on the Salisbury poisoning as a "diversionary tactic".
The Foreign Office said it would respond to the invitation "in due course".
It followed Russian Embassy criticism of the UK government's refusal - on immigration rules - to grant a visa to Ms Skripal's cousin, Viktoria Skripal, to visit Britain.
The embassy says the refusal to allow Viktoria Skripal to visit her cousin and uncle was "disappointing" and "politically motivated".
Mr Skripal was jailed by Russia for spying for Britain, but released as part of a spy swap between the US and Russia in 2010.
Yulia was visiting him in the UK when the attack happened on 4 March. She is now conscious and talking in hospital.
Salisbury District Hospital has said Mr Skripal, is responding well to treatment and "improving rapidly".
A vehicle that is believed to have been used by Mr Skripal's friend to pick up Yulia from the airport on 3 March was removed from Durrington, Wiltshire, by the Army on 19 March.
