Romania Ukrainian conflict
The European Union closed the entire airspace of its 27 countries to Russian aircraft on Sunday, following a steady stream of airspace closure announcements by member countries over the weekend.
The zone was expanded from 100 to 200 nautical miles from the Ukrainian border with Russia. EASA argues that the expanded zone now considers the “risk posed by the threat of missile launches to and from Ukraine.”
“We have guests traveling in late March and early April to Poland, but that is more than a month away. It’s impossible to say now how it will evolve. We are basically in wait-and-see mode,” Kozlowski said by email.
Tourists with short-term plans to visit Poland are advised to book accommodation in advance, “as some of the hotel infrastructure may be earmarked for those in need.”
“IATA is helping to facilitate the relevant and timely exchange of information with airlines from government and non-government sources to support airlines in planning their operations around the airspace closures in Ukraine and parts of Russia.”
Romania supports Ukraine
“We believe in the success of modernization, in the intellectual and creative power of our citizens. We believe that our entrepreneurs, our scientists and our engineers, with the support of the state and the cooperation of foreign partners, will make our economy become one of the main drivers of global development” (Dmitry Medvedev, speech to the ambassadors of the Russian Federation abroad, July 2010).
Russia also recognizes that the EU should be the other major partner in this modernization effort. The so-called Partnership for Modernisation, launched at the Stockholm Summit in November 2009, responds to this approach.
Russia is paying increasing attention to other emerging powers such as Brazil and India, with which it is trying to coordinate positions in the field of global economic governance. Although the results so far have been modest, it cannot be ruled out that this group of countries will be able to effectively coordinate their positions, especially with regard to the most relevant aspects of international economic relations.

How the war affects romania
Bucharest, Jan 29 (EFE) – Romania is a key piece of NATO’s security architecture in southeastern Europe, where it has a 650-kilometer border with Ukraine, so a Russian offensive against that country could have serious consequences for the Balkan country as well.
A war in southern Ukraine would likely trigger a flood of refugees into Romania, and Gosu does not see the country, one of the poorest in the European Union, prepared to take on “tens of thousands” of displaced people.
Following Russia’s annexation of Crimea in 2014, NATO has provided cybersecurity support to Ukraine, and because of its geographic position and human resources in this field, Romania has taken a leading role.
In addition to rejecting Russia’s demand that NATO withdraw from Romania and Bulgaria, the United States and other Western countries have pledged to reinforce NATO’s presence on their eastern borders in the event of a new outbreak of war in Ukraine.
