New drone attack on Romania’s border, explosions in the port of Izmail

Ukraine says Russian drones fell and exploded on Romanian territory last night. The Ministry of Defense from Bucharest denied the information. Ukraine says Russian drones fell and exploded right on Romanian territory last night.

Russia attacked the Izmail port on the Romanian border for the second night in a row. Explosions caused by Iranian drones were heard in the city located on the banks of the Danube, a few hundred meters from our country.

However, the spokesperson of the Ukrainian Foreign Ministry stated that Russian drones fell and detonated right on Romanian territory during last night’s attack in the Danube area, reports Reuters.

The Romanian Ministry of National Defense has yet denied the drones had fallen on the Romanian territory.

“The Ministry of National Defense categorically denies the information in the public space regarding a so-called situation that occurred during the night of September 3 to 4, in which Russian drones allegedly fell on the national territory of Romania. The structures with responsibilities of the Ministry of National Defense monitored in real time the situation generated by the Russian attacks carried out with drones, both last night and Saturday to Sunday, on the infrastructure in the vicinity of the Ukrainian ports on the Danube. At no time did the means of attack used by the Russian Federation generate direct military threats to the national territory or the territorial waters of Romania”, according to a press release of the MApN.

Kyiv has photo evidence that Russian drones hit Romanian territory during an air attack on the port of Izmail, Ukrainian Foreign Minister Dmitro Kuleba said on Monday. Earlier, the spokesperson of the Ukrainian Foreign Ministry stated that Russian drones fell and exploded on Romanian territory on Monday during an attack on Ukrainian port infrastructure on the Danube River.

Kuleba’s statements come in the context in which the Bucharest authorities denied the information. “Of course, there is a risk because what happened there is very close to our borders,” said Romanian Foreign Minister Luminița Odobescu. “We have seen Russia cynically continue to attack civilian infrastructure, preventing Ukraine from exporting its grain. Of course, there is the risk of accidents or incidents, but so far this has not been the case,” said the Romanian FM.

The new Russian drone attack, which lasted three and a half hours, took place on the night of Sunday to Monday on the port of Izmail in the Ukrainian Odessa region. The strikes caused significant damage to infrastructure, and drone debris set fire to several buildings, the region’s governor said.

About 17 drones were shot down, but some reached their targets, Governor Oleh Kiper said on Telegram. He added that according to preliminary information, there were no casualties or injuries. In several settlements in the extended area of ​​the port of Izmail, warehouses and production units, as well as machines and agricultural equipment, were damaged, Kiper said.

    Romania should stay away from Ukraine and not be directly involved.

    Ukraine is a nice friend wanting to suck you into a war with Russia and this is not the first or last time. Same with the nuclear power plant Russia is shelling it when it was them. Same with Poland a rocket from Russia fell when it was a Ukrainian anti aircraft rocket. Russia is running out of rockets that fool Wallace kept saying since the War started. No they have not. The USA has not won a single conflict since 1945. And it does not look good this time either! See any Chinese Spy balloons or Flying Saucers. Unreal Folly
