The Romanian foreign ministry firmly criticised the move of the deputy chairman of Russia’s Security Council, Dmitry Medvedev, who posted on social media a map assigning current Ukrainian territories to Romania and other neighbouring countries.

The foreign ministry regards such attitudes as part of the Russian Federation’s propaganda and disinformation campaign, which has intensified since the start of the illegal and illegitimate war against Ukraine. Such ‘proposals’ and ‘analyses’ concerning the random resetting of national borders and promoting violations of international laws are just failed attempts to justify Russia’s breaches of the international order based on rules.

The institution reiterates Romania’s full support for the independence, sovereignty and territorial integrity of Ukraine within its internationally recognised borders, and once again condemns Russia’s unjustified and unprovoked military aggression against that country. Romania is and will remain a partner of Ukraine and reconfirms its full support and deep compassion for the Ukrainian people, the victim of a brutal aggression, the institution’s news release also reads.
