MADRID (Sputnik) – A 74-year-old man was arrested in Spain on Wednesday on suspicion of sending envelopes containing explosive substances, including to the US and Ukrainian embassies in Madrid, media reported.

The detainee is a pensioner from the northern Spanish town of Miranda de Ebro in the province of Burgos, Spanish TV channel La Sexta reported. Until his retirement, the man worked as a civil servant in the town hall of Vitoria-Gasteiz. In recent years, he has not been officially associated with any political group.

The suspect has no ties to extremist groups in Russia, Spanish newspaper ABC said on Wednesday. He is expected to be tried on January 27.

The court will consider the case as a possible terrorism offence, the report said, adding that the man will be tried as the author of all the mailings.

On Sunday, the New York Times reported that Russian security agents allegedly coordinated supporters of white supremacist groups to send parcel bombs into Spain. The Russian Embassy, ​​in turn, said that the Spanish media were very actively promoting this article, although it did not contain any evidence.

The Russian Embassy in Spain said on Wednesday that the Spaniard’s detention demonstrated the Russophobic nature of some Western media.

“Comment from the Russian Embassy in Spain on yet another revelation of propaganda and Russophobia from some Western media. We share the reaction of readers of the Spanish press when they learned that the accusations against Russia of sending of letters with explosives, so actively circulated in Spain, have been refuted: some laugh at anti-Russian propaganda, others share the belief that they have completely lost faith in the media,” the embassy said in a statement.

In November and December 2022, a total of six letters containing explosive devices were discovered in Spain. They were addressed in particular to the Spanish Prime Minister Pedro Sanchez, to the Minister of Defense Margarita Robles and to the American and Ukrainian ambassadors in Madrid. A Ukrainian Embassy employee was injured following the incident involving the letter.
