Romania suspects Russian drones violated its airspace

Romania's Defense Ministry said Russian drones may have violated its airspace on Saturday night.

Russians have struck again in Ukraine with kamikaze drones. The Ukrainian military reported that the Russian military launched 40 drones and shot down 30 of them. Among other things, the drones attacked Odesa region, which borders Romania and is home to Ukrainian grain ports.

"After detecting groups of drones moving towards Ukrainian territory near the Romanian border," the authorities warned residents of the Tulcea and Galati municipalities of the danger, the Romanian defense ministry said in a statement quoted by AFP.

"The surveillance radar system showed a possible violation of the airspace: the signal was detected in the direction of the Galati municipality," the Romanian Defense Ministry said.

The ministry adds that it has no information that any objects have fallen on Romanian territory, but the search for wreckage will continue on Saturday.

Earlier in September, Romanian authorities reported that wreckage, possibly from Russian drones, had been found in the country's border areas.

This happened after another Russian attack on Ukraine's port infrastructure.

The Romanian Ministry of Defense has built bomb shelters in the border areas, and local residents have already been advised to use them in case of Russian drone attacks. They also received a similar warning at midnight on Saturday night.

Background. The day before, it became known that Romania was moving its air defense forces along the Danube near the border with Ukraine.
