Fragments of Russian drones found on Romanian territory, raising security concerns for NATO members.
On September 30, Romania’s National Defense Ministry issued a statement revealing that its Army surveillance system had detected a “possible unauthorized entry into national airspace” during the night near the town of Galati.
This development comes in the wake of escalating tensions and security concerns in the region due to a series of Russian drone attacks on ports in Ukraine’s southern Danube region, just across the border from Romania.
Fragments of these drones have landed on Romanian territory three times in September, highlighting the pressing need for heightened security measures. This article delves into the implications of this incident, its connection to recent events in the region, and the broader implications for NATO and Romania’s national security.
