The United Kingdom government on Wednesday has decided to provide South Wiltshire with a support package worth 5 million pounds ($6.63 million) following the incidents in the towns of Salisbury and Amesbury, the government said in a statement.

Axar.az reports citing Sputnik.

Roughly $1 million was allocated to cover the Wiltshire Council’s response and recovery costs and to support local businesses each, accordingly. Another 870,000 pounds will provide boost to the local tourism industry.

Following the announcement, the total amount of the government support to the area stands at 7.5 million pounds.

On March 4, Russian ex-spy Sergei Skripal and his daughter Yulia were found unconscious in March on a bench at a shopping center in Salisbury. The United Kingdom and its allies have accused Moscow of having orchestrated the attack with what UK experts claim was the A234 nerve agent, albeit without presenting any proof. Russian authorities have strongly refuted the allegations as groundless. Both Skripals have been discharged from the hospital.

On Sunday, the victim of poisoning, 44-year-old Dawn Sturges, died at the Salisbury District Hospital. On Monday, UK Defense Secretary Gavin Williamson accused Russia of carrying out the poisoning attack. On Tuesday, the second victim, 45-year-old Charlie Rowley, regained consciousness. On Wednesday, it has been reported that he was no longer in a critical condition.
