Russian Embassy: Detention of Spaniard who sent explosives shows the media’s hostility to Russia
MADRID, January 26 – RIA Novosti. The arrest of a Spaniard who allegedly sent explosive-laden letters, including to the Ukrainian embassy in Madrid, highlighted the anti-Russian nature of some Western media, while the Russian embassy in Spain drew attention.
Last week, the New York Times published an article in which US and European officials suspect Russian military intelligence is sending explosive devices to Spain in 2022. However, there was no concrete evidence of this.
A lone 74-year-old man who worked as a civil servant just before retiring from the state of Burgos on Wednesday was detained. The suspect is expected to appear in court this Friday. The court will consider this case an alleged terrorist crime and consider the man as the author of all these mails.
In total, six letters containing explosive devices were identified in November and December 2022, sent in particular to Prime Minister Pedro Sanchez, to the US and Ukrainian embassies in Madrid, as well as to the Ministry of Defense. As a result, no one died, an employee of the Ukrainian embassy was injured.
