London - Yulia Skripal, who was poisoned in England last month along with her Russian ex-spy father, has refused consular assistance from the Russian embassy, a British foreign ministry spokesman said.
"We have previously passed on the Russian embassy's offer of consular support to Yulia," the spokesman said on Wednesday.
"She is free to decide on whether she wishes to pursue that. To date, we understand she has not done so," he said.
Britain blames Russia for the nerve agent attack on the two on March 4, which has sparked an international diplomatic crisis.
Russia has vehemently denied the accusation and has requested access to the Skripals, who are both Russian citizens.
