Romania has summoned the Russian ambassador in protest over the drone "Shahed" falling on its territory during a night attack by terrorists on Ukraine, writes Romania's ambassador to NATO, Dan Neculăescu.

"Romania summoned the Russian ambassador to protest against these continued actions, which are in flagrant contradiction with the international law and an irresponsible escalation," the ambassador wrote.

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Romania has expressed its protest over the fall of the Shahed terrorist country's drone and called for an end to constant attacks on the Ukrainian population and civilian infrastructure, as well as irresponsible escalation of the security situation.
