"Russian bombing warning": an air raid alert heard during a football match in Romania. Video
During the Romanian football championship match between Otelul Galati and Dinamo Bucharest, an air raid alarm sounded during a flash interview with the home team's head coach Dorinel Munteanu. The video of the incident, which took place in the 11th round, was posted on Twitter by journalist Emmanuel Rosu.
"A surreal moment. A warning of a Russian bombing on all phones during Dorinel Munteanu's post-match speech. It said, 'Debris may fall from the sky. Find a safe place,' Rosu captioned the video.
As reported by OBOZREVATEL, on September 30, Romania's army radar system detected a possible unauthorized intrusion into the national airspace. The signal in the air was detected on the way to the city of Galati.
As a result, residents of the nearest settlements received an alarm signal from the Ro-Alert system with a call to take cover.
As a reminder, after the incidents with the fall of Russian drones that attacked the port infrastructure of Izmail and Reni in the Odesa region, Romania decided to move its air defense system closer to settlements on the Danube River on the border with Ukraine. The number of military observation posts and patrols in the area is also increasing.
Earlier, the Romanian Foreign Ministry acknowledged that the war in Ukraine has affected their country after several cases of Russian drone debris landing on Romanian territory.
At the same time, Stoltenberg explained the lack of NATO's response to the downing of the drones in Romania by saying that the Alliance "sees no signs that it was a deliberate attack."
