Romania strongly condemns President Putin’s announcement regarding Russia’s next steps

Romania strongly condemns the announcement of Russian President Vladimir Putin regarding Russia’s next steps towards further escalation of its illegitimate war in Ukraine, President Klaus Iohannis twitted on Wednesday.

“Romania strongly condemns President Putin’s announcement about Russia’s next steps towards further escalation of its illegal war against Ukraine. Romania reiterates its call for Russia to stop immediately its aggression against Ukraine and to fully withdraw all its armed forces,” Iohannis wrote on Twitter.

Russian President Vladimir Putin on Wednesday morning announced a “partial mobilisation” of its country’s military, calling up reservists in a significant escalation of his war in Ukraine after battlefield setbacks. He warned that Russia is ready to use “all its means” of defense, including nuclear, to “protect” itself.
