According to Kuleba, “terrorists are trying to intimidate Ukrainian diplomats, weaken and intimidate Ukraine through such actions.”
On Friday, Ukraine asked foreign governments to tighten security around its diplomatic missions on its soil.
And on Wednesday, the Ukrainian Foreign Ministry instructed to “tighten security measures” for all its embassies after the letter bomb at its mission headquarters in the Spanish capital, Madrid.
This came after a female employee at the Ukrainian embassy in Madrid was slightly injured after a letter bomb exploded, according to the Spanish police.
