MADRID, July 19. /TASS/. The Russian Embassy in Spain is monitoring the situation regarding the hospitalization of a three-year old Russian girl who allegedly swallowed an ecstasy pill in Spain’s Ibiza by accident, the Russian diplomatic mission in Madrid informed TASS on Friday.

"We are aware of the situation and are monitoring it; the consulate general keeps us informed. Russia’s Honorary Consul on the Balearic Islands is now involved," the embassy noted.

The Russian Consulate General in Barcelona informed TASS that they had received information "from various sources" that the Russian girl that has been "vacationing with her parents was accidentally poisoned by an ecstasy pill."
