Spain’s high profile government, military and diplomats were targeted through 6 letter bombs in November and December last year. According to media reports, citing unnamed US officials, it was reported on Sunday that Russia’s military intelligence agency had ordered the Petersburg-based White Militant Group to carry out the letter bomb campaign. Since then, suspicion has deepened on Russia’s Military Intelligence Agency regarding the Spain letter bomb incident.

“The letter bomb was intended to signal that Russia and its proxies could carry out terrorist attacks across Europe,” wrote one newspaper, citing unnamed US officials.
