Due to Russian attacks: NATO country may have to evacuate residents

A few days ago, Ukrainian border guards reported that the NATO country Romania had been hit by a Russian drone. Romania initially denied this. The media project NEXTA reports that now, however, even local residents could be evacuated.

Via the Network X, formerly Twitter, NEXTA writes: “Romania is considering evacuating residents of the border village of Plauru due to Russian attacks. The village is located across the border from the town of Izmail in Ukraine’s Odessa region. Residents complain that Russian drones attacking Izmail fly over their homes. Previously, the wreckage of a Russian drone was found in the area.”

NATO chief Jens Stoltenberg expresses concern about the developments: “We have no information indicating a deliberate attack by Russia and we are waiting for the outcome of the ongoing investigation. It highlights the risks of incidents and accidents… Regardless of this outcome (of the investigation, editor’s note), we have of course seen a lot of fighting and air strikes near NATO borders.”
