Romania’s defence minister has said that remains of a drone used in a Russian attack on a Ukrainian port have been found on Romanian territory.
Romania’s president says the attack, which the defence ministry is investigating, would be a serious violation of Romania’s sovereignty.
An attack on Romania, which is a member of Nato, would be “completely inadmissible”, Klaus Iohannis said.
On Monday, Ukraine’s foreign ministry had reported that Shahed drones “fell and detonated” in Romania on Sunday night after the latest Russian attack on the Ukrainian port of Izmail.
The Alliance countries expressed strong solidarity with Romania and added that they would closely monitor the situation.
NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg said the alliance had no information that the incident with the drone wreckage found in Romania was a “deliberate attack by Russia.”
NATO statement note that Romania informed NATO Allies about Russian drone incident in today’s North Atlantic Council. Allies expressed strong solidarity with Romania and adds “We continue to monitor the situation closely, and we remain in close contact with our Ally Romania”
