This was stated in an interview with the Sunday Telegraph her cousin Victoria Skripal, which the British side has denied a visitor’s visa to the United Kingdom.
“She [Julia] there’s a dog, she has life, she has work and loved people,” said Victoria.
Despite the fact that in Victoria the visa was refused on the grounds that it “did not meet the immigration rules”, the sister said that in fact, the British authorities feared that she was a “Russian spy”.
According to her, the letter she received from the British Embassy, said that the refusal to grant her a visa was because of a lack of confidence that Julia wants to see her. However, she dismissed the idea, saying that her cousin did not allow to freely Express their opinion. As an example, she cited the last phrase of his telephone conversation with Yulia, in which the latter cried, and she took the phone. “You think she’s crying because she doesn’t want to see me?”, — asked Victoria.
