Romania condemns Russian drone attack on Ukrainian Danube port

Romania’s defense minister condemned the latest Russian drone attacks on a Ukrainian port on the Danube River, which struck just across the border from Romania, a member of NATO.

“We condemn in the strongest terms the RU unjustified and criminal attacks targeting civilian infrastructure in [Ukraine], including the last night drone strikes on the port of #Reni on the #Danube,” Angel Tilvar posted on X, formerly known as Twitter, on Sunday.

The ministry said in a statement that the attacks were “unjustified and breaking all international humanitarian rules.”

But the ministry added that “drone attacks conducted by the Russian Federation did not pose any direct military threats against our national territory or Romania’s territorial waters.”

Ukrainian officials earlier claimed that some of the Shahed drones used by Russia had detonated on Romanian soil.

“According to the State Border Guard Service of Ukraine, Russian ‘Shaheds’ have fallen and detonated on the territory of Romania last night, during a massive Russian attack near the port of Izmail,” Ukrainian foreign ministry spokesperson Oleg Nikolenko said Monday.
The Romanian defense ministry said it continued to implement “enhanced vigilance measures in the ground, maritime and airspace, as well as the measures designated to consolidate the defense and deterrence posture on the eastern flank.”
