The North Atlantic Alliance believes that the fall of Shahed in Romania was not the result of a deliberate attack, according to NATO's Acting Press Secretary, Dylan White, on X.

He has noted that NATO strongly condemns Russian attacks on civilian infrastructure in Ukraine and along the Danube.

"NATO has no information indicating any intentional attack by Russia against Allies. We continue to monitor the situation and remain in close contact with the Romanian authorities," White has added.


Today, December 14, it became known that the Shahed kamikaze drone launched by Russians crashed on Romanian territory.

According to information from the Romanian Ministry of Defense, the drone fell in an uninhabited area near the village of Grinda.

Following the incident, Romania decided to summon the head of the Russian diplomatic mission to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

The drone crash occurred during the occupiers' latest attack on Ukraine. In total, they launched 42 drones at our country.

The air defense forces managed to shoot down 41 enemy kamikaze drones.
