Romania's defense ministry reported on Thursday the discovery of a drone crater near the country's border with Ukraine following Russian attacks on Ukrainian port infrastructure on Wednesday evening.

The ministry said there was a “possible explosion on impact”, and measures had been taken to secure the area and forces would continue to monitor Romania's airspace.

“The Ministry of National Defense strongly condemns the attacks carried out by the Russian Federation against some objectives and elements of civil infrastructure in the Ukrainian ports on the Danube,” it said.

“These attacks are unjustified and in serious contradiction with the rules of international humanitarian law.”

Soon after pulling out of the Black Sea grain deal on July 17, Moscow began targeting Ukrainian ports and warehouses along the Danube in between Ukraine and Romania, in an apparent attempt to choke off the main alternative route for Ukraine's agricultural exports.

The government has since reported isolated incidents of drone parts landing in Romania, although the government has said Romanian territory has not been targeted.
