Romanian Prime Minister Marcel Ciolacu assured on Saturday that Russia has not initiated any deliberate attacks on Romania and will not do so in the future. This statement comes in response to residents of Tulcea, bordering Ukraine, receiving warnings of potential airborne objects.
Tulcea residents received three RO-ALERT notifications regarding the possibility of flying objects, urging them to take necessary precautions and seek shelter if needed. This marked the first instance of such warnings this year, as reported by the Delta Emergency Situations Inspectorate.
Ciolacu emphasized the lack of justification for any deliberate aggression by the Russian Federation against Romania. He underscored the importance of disseminating warnings to keep citizens informed and expressed that it is a form of respect that the state must show to its population.
The Romanian Defence Ministry confirmed that the Army’s radar surveillance system detected no unauthorized intrusions into the national airspace, and there were no reports of accidental drone debris drops. F-16 planes from the Turkish Air Force’s 86th Air Base in Fetești were deployed for reconnaissance missions around 1 am to monitor the national airspace.
Despite concerns raised by former US President Donald Trump about NATO, Ciolacu emphasized that Romania has never been more militarily secure than before. He, as a citizen, expressed the importance of being informed and knowing the truth but reassured that Romania is not in danger of going to war.
