    MOSCOW (Sputnik) - The European Union Delegation to Russia confirmed receiving a "suspicious envelope" earlier in the day, Luca Eszter Kadar, the mission's head of the Press and Information Section, told Sputnik on Tuesday, adding the investigation into this situation is ongoing.

    "It is confirmed that we did receive an envelope which has been, let’s say, a suspicious envelope. There is an investigation, they’re looking into it," Kadar said.

    Prior to that, a source at Moscow’s emergency services told Sputnik that the delegation received an envelope with white powder.
