“I knew that it would be top news today that Shahed flew from Moldova,” said Ihnat.

The drone flew — in this way it shortened its way, and got to the Ukrainian territory from the South, where it was destroyed, Ihnat said.

Russia keeps carrying out its provocative actions, he added.

“Not only strike drones, but also reconnaissance drones often even approached the Romanian territory.”

Unidentified drones were heading from the border with Moldova in the direction of Khmelnytskyi, the Air Force reported in the evening of Feb. 26.

Russia attacked Ukraine with various types of missiles and rockets overnight on Feb. 27. Air defense forces shot down 11 drones and two X-59 missiles.
