On 11 February, Moldova’s Border Police reported finding debris from a Russian Shahed drone near the village of Etulia in the Vulcanesti district, which borders Ukraine.
“Information about the drone fragments was communicated to the authorities, and access to the crash site restricted,” the message reads.
Moldovan officials added there is no threat to the population, clarifying the fragments likely belong to a Russian drone downed on the night of 9-10 February by Ukraine’s air defense systems near Izmail in Odesa Oblast.
President Maia Sandu stated this latest incident serves as a reminder that Russia’s aggression threatens security across Europe.
Last year, wreckage from Russian Shahed drones fell on Romanian territory on multiple occasions as well.
