Romanian President Klaus Iohannis has demanded an "urgent and professional investigation" into the fallen wreckage of what is believed to be a Russian drone on Romanian territory.
Details: Iohannis noted that the investigation should find out the origin of these fragments as well as the time and circumstances under which they ended up on Romanian territory.
Quote: "If it is confirmed that these fragments are 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 also stressed that Romania remains well protected by security guarantees within NATO.
- Earlier, Romanian authorities confirmed that fragments similar to the wreckage of a drone were found off the coast of the Danube on the Romanian side. Ukraine reported that the Russian Shaheds fell on the territory of Romania on 4 September.
- Prior to this, the Romanian Ministry of Defence "categorically denied" the possibility that the drones used by the Russian Federation to attack the south of Ukraine could have fallen on their territory.
