A number of Ukrainian embassies have been sent “bloody packages” containing animal eyes, Kiev has claimed, after the “letter-bombs” in Madrid.
The packages, soaked in a liquid with a “distinctive color”, were sent to Kiev’s embassies in Hungary, the Netherlands, Poland, Croatia, Spain and Italy.
They were also received by the consulates general in Naples and Krakow.
Several suspected “letter bombs” were discovered in Spain this week, including from the office of Spanish Prime Minister Pedro Sanchez to the Ukrainian embassy and an arms company that supplies Ukraine.
It is unclear whether the incidents are linked, but two letters sent to Spain appear to have come from the same sender – as an identical email address was found on the packaging.
Otherwise, the American embassy in Kiev also received a ‘letter-bomb’ that was deactivated by the Spanish security forces.
