Spanish police have intercepted three more envelopes containing animal eyes addressed to Ukraine’s embassy in Madrid and its consulates in Barcelona and Málaga, police sources close to the investigation said.

Last week, Ukraine said a series of “bloody packages” were sent to its missions across Europe, soon after a letter bomb detonated at Ukraine’s embassy in Spain and police defused others sent to, among others, prime minister Pedro Sánchez.

The postal service’s security staff detected the new envelopes during screening on Monday morning and alerted police, the sources said. Officers found no explosive or flammable substances inside, the sources added.

The Ukrainian embassy in Madrid received a package with animal eyes on Friday that the interior ministry said carried a foreign stamp, Reuters reported.

Evidence from that package shared with the postal service helped its staff detect the latest one, police sources added.

On Saturday, a source familiar with the investigation told Reuters the six letter bombs appeared to have been posted from the northern city of Valladolid.

The Ukrainian foreign ministry spokesperson Oleg Nikolenko confirmed the latest interceptions on Monday and said there were now 21 known cases in which such threats had been sent to diplomatic missions in 12 countries.

The White House has said that the latest Russian strikes against Ukraine are a reminder of the Russian president Vladimir Putin’s brutality.

John Kirby, the White House national security spokesperson, also told reporters that an oil price cap would not have any long-term impact on global oil prices, Reuters reported.

Russia says three servicemen killed in explosions at Russian airbases

Russia said that three of its military personnel were killed in what it said were Ukrainian drone attacks on two Russian airbases.

Two aircraft were lightly damaged, the defence ministry said in a statement. Four other people had been wounded, it said.

The defence ministry highlighted that it had launched a strike on Ukraine’s military and energy infrastructure on Monday, “despite the attempts of the Kyiv regime to disrupt the combat work of Russian long-range aviation with a terrorist act”.

Canadian-made parts have been found in the “kamikaze” Iranian drones used by Russia to attack Ukraine, according to a report.

An investigative project from the NGO Statewatch found components from 30 European and American companies, concluding antenna parts from Tallysman Wireless, a Canadian manufacturer.

Iranian-made Shahed 136 drones have been used by Russia in attacks against Ukraine, targeting civilian infrastructure. According to Statewatch’s project Trap Aggressor, the Russian military renamed the drone Geran-2 to mask its origins.

Tallysman’s president told the Globe and Mail he was “painfully aware” that his company’s product has been used to target civilians in Ukraine.

“It is sometimes assumed that we are somehow complicit in this usage. We absolutely are not,” Gyles Panther told the newspaper. “Tallysman is 100% committed to supporting Ukraine in the face of Russian aggression.”

Because of sanctions against Iran, Panther suspects he inadvertently sold parts to “fake company fronts” and said his company was working with Canadian customs officials, but admitted it could be difficult to prevent largely innocuous parts such as wireless antennas, which aren’t covered by exports controls, from ending up in the wrong hands.

Moldovan police on Monday found fragments of a missile that came down in a region of northern Moldova near the border with Ukraine, state information portal Prima Sursa quoted the police as saying.

Moldovan authorities did not immediately comment publicly on the incident, which was reported after Russia carried out a new wave of missile strikes on Ukraine.

The Ukrainian foreign ministry spokesperson Oleg Nikolenko, responding to media reports about the incident, repeated calls for Kyiv to receive more missile defence systems from its allies.

“This once again proves that Russian missile terror poses a huge threat not only to the security of Ukraine, but also to the security of neighbouring countries,” he said in a statement.

Russia did not immediately comment on the reports.

Ukraine shoots down most missiles launched by Russia, air force says

Ukraine shot down more than 60 of over 70 missiles launched by Russia in a massed missile strike on Monday, Ukraine’s air force command said.

The strikes targeted Ukraine’s critical infrastructure, the air force said in a statement on the Telegram messaging app.

Air defences shot down most of the Russian missiles fired at Ukraine on Monday and energy workers have already begun work on restoring power supplies, Ukrainian president Volodymyr Zelenskiy said.

Russia carried out the latest in a wave of airstrikes on Ukraine, destroying homes in the south and knocking out power in the north and killing at least two people, Ukrainian officials said.

The governor of the Kyiv region has said 40% of it is without electricity and some infrastructure was hit, but that there were no “critical consequences”, reports Reuters.

Vladimir Putin has driven across the Kerch bridge, linking Russia and the Crimean peninsula, after it was damaged by a truck bomb in October.

The Russian president drove across the bridge today and spoke to workers and a senior government official, reports Reuters.

The bomb attack, on 8 October, disrupted travel on one of the two lanes of the bridge. Russia blamed Ukraine and responded with a wave of strikes on Ukraine’s energy facilities and other key infrastructure.

The all clear has been sounded in Kyiv. It is possible there will be further waves of strikes, but for now the capital appears to have emerged unscathed. The air defences could be heard in action. So far there have been no reports of any missile impacts in the city. Odesa seems to have been hit hardest meanwhile and there are reports of a missile landing over the border in Moldova, near Briceni.
