Quote: "As the State Border Guard Service of Ukraine reported, tonight [4 September – ed.] during a large-scale Russian attack at the port of Izmail, Russian Shahed drones fell and detonated in Romania."
Details: Nikolenko posted a photo of the explosion and stressed that this is yet another confirmation that Russian missile terror poses a huge threat not only to the security of Ukraine but also to the security of neighbouring countries, including NATO member states.
He called on the Allies to speed up the provision of additional modern missile and air defence systems, as well as combat aircraft, to Ukraine, which will enhance the protection of the infrastructure of Ukraine and neighbouring countries.
