Video shows how close Putin's bombs are dropping next to Nato's doorstep
Vladimir Putin’s 18-month-old war in Ukraine inches closer and closer to Nato and EU territory.
Until 48 hours ago, only the Danube River separated Russia’s drones – mercilessly attacking port facilities in Izmail and Reni – and Romania.
Footage shows Russia hitting port infrastructure and grain storage facilities, just a few hundred metres from the shores of the neighbouring country.
Romanians filmed the chilling attack right on their doorstep in the middle of the night.
As a large explosion in the near distance lights the sky, one of them can be heard saying: ‘So that’s it, here comes the drone.’
It comes hours after Romanian defence minister Angel Tilvar confirmed that parts of a Russian drone fell on Romania’s soil after a strike on a Ukrainian port on the Danube River.
He said he had briefed Nato allies about the incident but did not deem necessary to convene the Supreme Council of National Defence.
Senior officials had previously denied this, despite picture evidence provided from the Ukrainian ministry of defence.
Drone parts were found in the village of Plauru , on the Chilia arm of the Danube River, opposite Izmail.
Romania had previously said that drone incursions by Russian military UAVs were ‘completely inadmissible and a serious violation of the sovereignty and territorial integrity’.
Ukrainian president Volodymyr Zelensky said that the incident showed the threat posted to Western countries like Romania.
He asked: ‘What would have happened if Putin had succeeded to put its foothold in Ukraine?’
The explosions come the day after at least 17 people were killed and dozens more wounded when Russian shells hit a busy market in Kostiantynivka.
