Several Ukrainian embassies abroad have received ‘bloody packages’ containing animal eyes, the country’s foreign ministry said on Friday, after a series of letter bombs were sent to addresses in Spain including Ukraine’s embassy in Madrid.
The packages, soaked in a liquid with a distinctive colour and smell, were sent to embassies in Hungary, the Netherlands, Poland, Croatia and Italy as well as the general consulates in Naples and Kraków, and a consulate in Brno, spokesmanOleg Nikolenko said.
“We are studying the meaning of this message,” the spokesman wrote in a statement on Facebook, adding that Foreign Minister Dmytro Kuleba has ordered all the embassies and consulates concerned to be placed under heightened security.
