Haunting CCTV footage shows Yulia Skripal boarding Moscow jet bound for Britain just days before her poisoning

HAUNTING footage has emerged of what appears to be Yulia Skripal boarding a UK-bound jet from Moscow just days before she was poisoned.

The CCTV images have been released by Russia’s Investigative Committee, which claims to have traced Skripal's taxi cab ride and her movements around the airport.

Ex-spy Sergei Skripal, 66, and his daughter Yulia were poisoned in Britain with a military-grade nerve agent last month.

Yulia Skripal lives in Moscow and was visiting her dad, which led British investigators to believe that she might have unwittingly carried the substance with her.

But Russian investigators say they have traced back her steps from her Moscow home to Sheremetyevo airport  – and found no traces of poison.

Investigators also claim they’ve identified everyone on the 33-year-old's flight – and say none of the passengers showed any symptoms of poisoning.

The footage released by the committee on its official YouTube account shows a woman who looks like Yulia Skripal get out of the taxi outside the terminal.

She then appears to go through security and boards the plane.

Britain blames Russia for the attack, which it says was carried out by smearing the Soviet-developed nerve agent on a door handle at Skripal's house in Salisbury.

The Department for Environment has confirmed the agent Novichok was delivered in "liquid form".

Yulia and Sergei were rushed to Salisbury District Hospital in critical condition after being found slumped on a bench in a park.

Last week, Yulia revealed she is still suffering with symptoms from the attack – and vehemently rejected any any help from Russia.

In her first statement since her release from hospital, she said her dad was still "seriously ill".

Moscow denies involvement.

The investigators also expressed their frustration at Britain's unwillingness to share information about the probe.
