Romanian Foreign Minister Luminița Odobescu has said that Russian attacks on infrastructure in southern Ukraine pose risks for her country, but she denies that there have been any threatening incidents so far.
Details: This is how Odobescu commented on the situation that occurred on the night of 4 September, when Ukrainian officials claimed that a wreckage of Shahed drones launched by the Russian Federation fell on Romanian territory.
Quote: "Of course, there is a risk because what happened there is happening very close to our borders. Of course, there is a risk of accidents or incidents, but so far, it hasn't happened."
She emphasised that with its attacks, Russia does not allow Ukraine to export its grain.
