Details: Iohannis reported that Romania has established "total control over our national space, but yes, we are worried because these attacks occur at a very small distance from the Romanian border."
He added that Angel Tîlvăr, Minister of Defence of Romania, informed him about the recent Russian attacks.
Iohannis stressed that Romania continues to carefully monitor the situation and assured the public that the country is under reliable protection. "I can say what I have already said: Romania has very strong security guarantees, the strongest in our history," he added.
