According to him, the building-service supervisor was wounded in the explosion and admitted to hospital. The other employees of the embassy were lucky to avoid the injuries.
"The Ukrainian Embassy in Spain received an envelope. During the inspection the envelope exploded in the hands of the building-service supervisor. The building-service supervisor received moderate injuries and was admitted to hospital for proper medical care. His life is currently out of danger," he wrote.
Nikolenko added that Spanish law-enforcement officers and EOD technicians are already working at the scene of the incident.
"The Minister also urged his Spanish colleague to take urgent measures to investigate the attack on the Ukrainian deputy. He stressed that whoever is behind this explosion, they will not be able to intimidate Ukrainian diplomats or stop their daily work on strengthening Ukraine and countering Russian aggression," the Spokesman of the Ukraine’s Foreign Ministry said.
The first footage from the scene of the incident is shared by the social media users. The video reveals a Spanish journalist standing outside the diplomatic office and reporting on the details of the explosion.
