Russian drones do not attack us, but their crash is a problem

Sep 22, 2023

Romanian President Klaus Iohannis has called the crash of Russian drones on his country's territory during attacks on Ukraine's Danube ports a real problem.

He said this at the World Leaders Forum event at Columbia University in New York, Agerpres 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.
