Chisinau, Feb. 12 /MOLDPRES/- President Maia Sandu and Prime Minister Dorin Recean came up with reactions after the authorities announced yesterday that Shahed type drone fragments were found in the area of the Moldovan-Ukrainian border.

"Russia's war on Ukraine hits close to home in Moldova — again. The discovery of the remains of the "Shahed" drone in southern Moldova serves as another stark reminder of the grim reality we are facing. Russia's aggression endangers the entire continent. Support for Ukraine must continue", said Maia Sandu.

Recean strongly condemned Russia's recent attacks against Ukraine, which once again affected our country. "Drone fragments were found in the southern part of the Republic of Moldova. The investigation is ongoing. Public safety is ensured by the authorities and there are no risks for local communities", he said.

Deputy Prime Minister Mihai Popșoi, Minister of Foreign Affairs also reacted in this case. "We condemn Russia's attacks against Ukraine, which directly affect the Republic of Moldova as well. The remains of the Shahed drone, found in the south of the country near the border, are a stark reminder of the violence and destruction wrought by the Kremlin," the official said.

The authorities announced that yesterday, in the area of the Moldovan-Ukrainian border, fragments of a "Shahed" type drone were found. The Border Police said "there is a suspicion that the remains of the drone are one of the drones shot down by the Ukrainian anti-aircraft system". On-site research is ensured by forensic experts jointly with the policemen of Vulcanesti Inspectorate.
