Police sources explained that the authorship of all the shipments seemed to correspond to the same origin. They added that, at the moment, nobody has been identified as a possible suspect or suspects, nor has there been any action requested from the court.

As reported by, citing sources familiar with the case, officers investigating the sending of the letter bombs to different people and entities are believed to be working with the hypothesis that: “we are dealing with a lone wolf with extensive knowledge, well trained and not an organized group”.

One of the suspicious letters in question was sent to La Moncloa in a package addressed to the Prime Minister, Pedro Sanchez. Another three similar letters were received in Madrid, at the Ukrainian Embassy, ​​at the Ministry of Defence and at the Torrejon de Ardoz military air base.

There were at least two others. A fifth letter arrived at the Instalaza company, which manufactures weapons, and the sixth at the United States Embassy in Madrid.
