Details: The Moldovan Border Police published a photo of the wreckage found in the middle of a field, noting that it was identified as the wreckage of a Shahed UAV.
The drone was found near the village of Etulia, Vulcǎneşti district, not far from the Ukrainian cities of Bolhrad and Reni.
"We suspect that the found wreckage is one of the drones shot down by a Ukrainian anti-aircraft system," the Border Police said, adding that there is no threat to local residents at this stage.
President Maia Sandu said the incident was another reminder that the Russian aggression is a threat to the entire continent.
Russia’s war on Ukraine hits close to home in Moldova — again. The discovery of Shahed drone debris in southern Moldova today serves as another stark reminder of the grim reality we face. Russia’s aggression endangers the entire continent. Support for Ukraine must continue.

Quote from Sandu: "This serves as another stark reminder of the grim reality we face. Russia’s aggression endangers the entire continent. Support for Ukraine must continue."
In Romania, F-16 fighter jets were scrambled on the night of 9-10 February because of the Shahed attack on Odesa Oblast.
Last year, the wreckage of the Shahed repeatedly fell on Romanian territory.
