29th Mar 24 1:05 pm

A NATO member has reported that citizens heard “strange noises” and shared footage of what appears to be a drone falling into their territory.

Romania who have been a NATO member for some 20 years found fragments at a farm on their border with Ukraine.

The Romanian Defence Ministry officials said the fragments were found close to the Danube River, on the Great Braila Island, which comes after Russia launched a massive missile and drone attack on Ukraine.

The Romanian Ministry said in a statement, “On the evening of 28 March, fragments that appear to have come from an aerial device [drone] on a farmland in the Great Braila Island were identified.

The Ministry of National Defence, together with specialised structures within the national defence system, public order and national security, is conducting an investigation of the incident on Friday 29 March according to specific operational procedures.

‘Polish and allied aircraft activated’ amid ‘intense activity of long-range aviation’ on Ukraine border

Polish and NATO allied aircraft were “activated” amid a wave of “intensive activity” of long-range Russian aviation “Tu-95, Tu-22 and MIG-31 aircraft” in Ukraine, Poland announced on Friday.

Tensions spiked in Moldova as they announced there were three explosions heard close to their border with Ukraine in the Novodnestrovsk region.

In a statement Moldovan border force said, “Regarding the information that Russian missiles would have flown over the airspace of the Republic of Moldova last night, we would like to mention that all airspace surveillance and monitoring systems did not detect any unauthorised entry, an aspect also confirmed by the Ukrainian authorities.”

This week it was revealed that NATO are considering a “counter-attack” after Russian missiles have crossed their border which could lead to direct confrontation with Moscow.

There are fears that Europe could be dragged into the Ukrainian war as a Russian missile entered NATO airspace.

On Sunday a Russian ballistic missile entered into Polish airspace near to the Polish town of Oserdów in the Lublin Voivodeship placing the region on high alert.

Poland’s deputy foreign minister Andrzej Szejna told RMF24: [Russia] knew that if the missile moved further into Poland, it would be shot down.

“There would be a counter-attack. Various concepts are being analysed within NATO, including for such missiles to be shot down when they are very close to the NATO border.”

“But this would have to happen with the consent of the Ukrainian side and taking into account the international consequences,” he added.
