According to the minister, Russia uses terrorist means to cause terror.
The Minister of Defense of Ukraine, Oleksiy Reznikov, said that the Russian Federation was behind the explosion on the territory of the Ukrainian embassy in Madrid and the dangerous letters sent to Spain.
As he noted during a briefing with Spanish Defense Minister Margarita Robles on Thursday, December 1, 2022, Russia uses terrorist means to inflict terror.
“The world is beginning to recognize that this is a terrorist state. And terror knows no borders. Today, the minister spoke about the explosive letters that are already being received in Spain – they are using terrorist means to cause terror. They are trying to stop the water supply in Ukraine, electricity, so that we are in the cold and in the dark. This means that this is a challenge for the whole world,” explained Reznikov.
