Ukraine has said that Russian drones “detonated” in Romania which is a member of NATO, but this has been denied.

The Ukrainian Foreign Ministry said that Russian drones hit Romania following a huge attack on Izmail.

Ukraine said that their Air Force had shot down 23 out of 32 Iranian “Shahed” drones which were launched from Crimea and Russia.

Ukrainian official Oleg Nikolenko said, “According to Ukraine’s state border guard service, last night, during a massive Russian attack near the port of Izmail, Russian ‘Shakheds’ fell and detonated on the territory of Romania.

“This is yet another confirmation that Russia‘s missile terror poses a huge threat not only to Ukraine‘s security, but also to the security of neighbouring countries, including NATO member states.”

However, Romania has strenuously denied this happened and the Defence Ministry “categorically” denies that Russian drones landed on their territory on Monday morning.

The Ministry said the Russian attack did not “generate direct military threats to Romania’s national territory or territorial waters.

The Romanian Ministry added that they have taken measures to strengthen their defences on the eastern flank.

“The massive drone attack lasted more than 3.5 hours. 22 drones of the ‘Shahed-136’ type were destroyed by air defence forces.

“It is known in advance about 2 injured civilians. They were given medical assistance.”

Romania’s Foreign Minister Luminita Odobescu called a “barbaric attack against civilian targets.”
