Letter bomb explodes at Ukraine embassy in Madrid: Commandant taken to hospital.

The commandant of the Embassy of Ukraine in Spain was injured, as a letter bomb exploded in his hands. The rest of employees remained unharmed.

The relevant statement was made by Spokesperson for the Ukrainian Foreign Affairs Ministry Oleg Nikolenko on Facebook, an Ukrinform correspondent reports.

“The Embassy of Ukraine in Spain received an envelope. During the inspection, it exploded in the commandant’s hands. The commandant received minor injuries; now he is in hospital and provided with necessary medical aid. His life is not at risk,” Nikolenko wrote.

In his words, Ukrainian Foreign Affairs Minister Dmytro Kuleba issued an urgent instruction to step up security measures at all Ukrainian embassies abroad.

Kuleba also asked his Spanish counterpart to take urgent measures to investigate the incident. Spanish law enforcement officers and explosives experts are now working at the scene.

According to Nikolenko, Kuleba stressed that, whoever was behind that explosion, they would not succeed in intimidating Ukrainian diplomats or stopping their daily work to strengthen Ukraine and to counter Russian aggression.
