Ukrainian diplomatic missions in at least three countries received parcels with blood and animal eyes. This was stated by the official representative of the country’s Foreign Ministry, Oleg Nikolenko.
According to him, the parcels “were saturated with a liquid of a characteristic color and had an appropriate smell.” Now the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine is studying the meaning of this message. Nikolenko added that Kyiv considers this a planned campaign of terror and intimidation.
Earlier on December 2, Czech media reported that a suspicious package had been sent to the Ukrainian consulate in Brno. In this regard, emergency services were pulled to the place, and the staff was evacuated from the building.
Later, law enforcement agencies of the Czech Republic reported that the parcels contained animal tissues, but did not specify which ones. Now the contents of the packages have been sent for examination.
Later, the Ukrainian Foreign Ministry clarified that the country’s diplomatic missions in Hungary, Croatia, consulates in Naples, Krakow and Brno also received bloody parcels.
The day before, on December 1, Ukrainian Foreign Minister Dmitry Kuleba said that two Ukrainian embassies in threatening letters came from different countries. He did not say what kind of diplomatic missions he was talking about and did not reveal the content of the messages, but noted that they were “accurate and specific.”
The story of attacks on embassies Ukraine in different countries began on November 30 – then an explosion occurred in the diplomatic mission in Madrid. On this day, at about 13.00 local time (15.00 Moscow time), a parcel arrived in the name of Ambassador Sergei Pogoreltsev. However, one of the embassy employees considered her suspicious and decided to open a diplomatic mission in the courtyard. The employee heard a click when opening and threw the box away from him, after which an explosion occurred. The man’s hands were injured, he was shell-shocked. He is now hospitalized in Nuestra Senora de America Hospital.
Immediately after the explosion, criminologists, cynologists, and sappers arrived at the scene. The area near the embassy was cordoned off by the police, and a local anti-terrorist regime was put in place. After some time, the Spanish authorities reported that they regard the incident as a terrorist act.
The Spanish media later reported that the Instalaza weapons company (which supplied rocket launchers to Ukraine), the Spanish Ministry of Defense, and the satellite center received parcels with bombs EU military base and US embassy. The Spanish Ministry of the Interior also reported that on November 24, a similar package arrived at the office of Prime Minister Pedro Sanchez. Law enforcement authorities believe that all these shipments are related.
