Due to Ukraine Conflict: Germany Delivers Eurofighter Jets to Romania

Germany will dispatch four Eurofighter jets to Romania by the end of November to support the NATO air policing mission, Reuters reported on November 9th, citing an unnamed security source.

Berlin will also send up to 80 soldiers to a military base near the Romanian city of Constanta, with the first set to depart as early as November 9th, according to The Kyiv Independent. This move comes weeks after the incident involving suspected Russian drone debris found on Romanian soil, linked to Moscow’s attacks on Ukrainian Danube ports, just a few hundred meters from Romania’s border. In response, Bucharest has tightened security measures along its border with Ukraine, including the establishment of bomb shelters, air raid warnings, and anti-drone systems.

NATO has condemned Russia’s actions in the region as “destabilizing,” but has emphasized that there is no indication of an intentional attack against a member of the alliance.
