Russian drone again falls on territory of Romania – Defense Ministry
On Wednesday, October 11, the Russian forces continued their attacks on the Ukrainian port infrastructure, in the proximity of the border between Ukraine and Romania, as a result of which an unmanned aerial vehicle fell at approximately 3 kilometers West of Plauru Locality in Tulcea.
The Defense Ministry of Romania said on its website that "at around 5:00 a.m., the teams in the field reported the discovery of a drone crater, with a possible explosion at impact, in a vegetated area near the right bank of Chilia Branch, at approximately 3 km West of Plauru Locality."
"Measures were taken to secure the area and the competent structures were notified in order to collect evidence and conduct investigations, according to the procedures in force," it said.
The Ministry of National Defence of Romania strongly condemns the attacks conducted by the Russian Federation against certain sites and civil infrastructure elements in the Ukrainian ports at the Danube.
"These attacks are unjustified and are seriously infringing the international humanitarian law rules," it said.
Foreign Minister of Romania Luminita Odobescu, for her part, called on Russia to stop constant attacks on Ukraine.
"Heinous Russian attacks on Ukraine civilian infrastructure had again serious consequences on Romania's territory. New evidence of impact was found on Romania's soil. We call on Russia to stop these war crimes," she said on the X social network on Thursday.
