A package seeping blood arrived at the Embassy of Ukraine in Greece on the morning of Dec. 12, Oleh Nikolenko, spokesman of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine reported on Facebook on Dec. 12.

“The sender’s address is the same as on the other envelopes that previously arrived at Ukrainian embassies and consulates: The Tesla car dealership in the German town of Sindelfingen,” he said.

The Greek police have started an investigation. They also expect cooperation with the German law enforcement officers, Nikolenko added.

An explosion took place at the Embassy of Ukraine in Madrid on Nov. 30, leaving one person injured. Ukrainian Ambassador to Spain Serhiy Pohoreltsev reported that a parcel addressed to him had exploded when being examined by another member of staff.
