Romanian President Klaus Iohannis has said that an "urgent and professional investigation" should be carried out in connection with the discovery of the fragments of a Russian drone on Romanian territory.
Details: Iohannis said that the investigation should find out the origin of the wreckage as well as the time and circumstances under which it ended up on Romanian territory.
"If it is confirmed that this debris is part of a Russian drone, this situation will be completely unacceptable and will be a serious violation of Romania's sovereignty and territorial integrity," he said.
Iohannis also stressed that Romania remains well protected by NATO security guarantees.
- On 4 September, Ukraine reported that Russian Shahed drones had crashed in Romania.
- Initially, the Romanian side categorically denied the possibility that the drones used by Russia to attack the south of Ukraine could have fallen on their territory. Later, Romania confirmed that fragments similar to the wreckage of a drone were found near the banks of the Danube on the Romanian side.
- On the night of 5-6 September, residents of the border village of Chilia Veche in Romania also witnessed explosions during the Russian attack on Ukraine.
