Romanian President: Russian drones falling is a problem

Sep 22, 2023

Romanian President Klaus Iohannis said that the fall of Russian drones on the territory of the country during the attacks on the Danube ports of Ukraine is a problem.


He said this at the World Leadership Forum event at Columbia University in New York, Yevropeiska Pravda reports.

According to him, although Russian drone attacks are not directed against Romania, the situation is unacceptable.

"The drones are not attacking Romania, but the fact that their parts are falling on the country's territory is a real problem that needs to be addressed. So far, no one has been injured, but this does not mean that these incidents do not count," said Iohannis.

He reminded that Russia is attacking ports on the Ukrainian coast to prevent the transit of grain, and called these attacks war crimes.

The Romanian president also said that people living on the Romanian side of the Danube near the areas affected by the attacks are afraid, but understand the importance of supporting Ukraine.

"They see the bombing on the other side and think that if we stand by and watch, we could be next," Iohannis summarized.
