After finding Russian drones in NATO country: Romania extends airspace restrictions

Following the discovery of drone debris in recent days, Romania is expanding airspace restrictions along its eastern border with Ukraine. This reports the German news website

The Ministry of Defense and the Ministry of Transport in Bucharest have announced that restrictions on airspace along the eastern border with Ukraine will be extended in an area of 20 to 30 kilometers extending inland. This area extends between the cities of Galati and Sulina, which are about 134 kilometers apart. The decision was communicated to civil and military aviation authorities last night. From now on, only state aircraft and rescue helicopters will be allowed to use this airspace. The civil operations of Tulcea Airport, which is located in this area, remain unaffected.

Last Thursday, drone parts were again discovered in Romania’s Danube Delta. The Ministry of Foreign Affairs in Bucharest accused Russia of violating the NATO country’s airspace and as a result summoned the Russian ambassador. Both the foreign and defense ministries unanimously stated that the recently found debris belonged to a drone similar to those used by the Russian army, as the German news platform communicated.
