The Romanian president confirmed this Tuesday that attacks targeting Ukraine have been recorded 800 meters from the Romanian border.
Attacks targeting Ukraine occurred “very close” to the border with Romania, the president of this NATO member country said on Tuesday, the day after the fall of Russian explosive drones on the Danube.
“We have had attacks (…) which have been recorded 800 meters from our border. So very, very close,” declared Klaus Iohannis, during a press conference alongside Luxembourg Prime Minister Xavier Bettel.
Targeted cereal infrastructure
Since the suspension in July of the agreement which allowed Ukraine to export its cereals via the Black Sea, Russia has increased bombings in the region of south-west Ukraine bordering Romania, where there are ports and other infrastructure essential to this trade.
On Monday, Ukraine claimed to have evidence that Russian explosive drones had fallen overnight from Sunday to Monday in Romania.
Bucharest had “categorically” denied these allegations, through its Ministry of Defense which said it was “monitoring the situation in real time”.
“There was no debris, no drone or other piece of equipment that landed in Romania,” Klaus Iohannis insisted on Tuesday. “We have total control of our airspace. We have checked absolutely everything and I can reassure the population.”
“But yes, we are worried because of the very close proximity” of these repeated attacks, he added.
