Romania's defense ministry on Sunday strongly condemned repeated Russian attacks on Ukraine's Danube infrastructure close to its border as "unjustified" following the latest overnight drone strikes in the southern Odesa region.

The ministry "reiterates in the strongest terms that these attacks against civilian targets and infrastructure in Ukraine are unjustified and in deep contradiction with the rules of international humanitarian law".

"At no time did the means of attack used by the Russian Federation generate any direct military threat to the national territory or territorial waters of Romania," it added in a statement.
