Romanian Prime Minister believes Russia will not attack his country

Feb 12, 2024

Russia has not carried out any deliberate attacks on Romania and will not do so in the future.

This was stated by Romanian Prime Minister Marcel Ciolacu, Euractiv reports.


The Romanian prime minister's statement came after residents of Tulcea, which borders Ukraine, received three RO-ALERT warnings about the possibility of flying objects. They were advised to take the necessary protective measures and, if necessary, to take shelter.

"The Russian Federation has not initiated any deliberate aggression against Romania, and I assert with confidence that it will not, as it lacks justification," Călacu said.

At the same time, he emphasized the importance of disseminating warnings to keep citizens informed.

"It is a form of respect that the state must show to its population by ensuring they are informed, notwithstanding any inconvenience it may cause," the prime minister said.

The Romanian Defense Ministry confirmed that the army's radar surveillance system did not detect "any unauthorized intrusions" into the country's airspace, and there were no reports of accidental drone debris falling.

As a reminder, Romania launched F-16 fighter jets during Russia's massive attack on Ukraine on the night of February 10.
