As it turns out, another victim of the attack was an American soldier. Also reports the wounding of another Romanian soldier. However, information about the wound of the Ministry of Defense of Romania has not yet been confirmed.

The Romanian Defense Ministry notes that the Romanian soldier was among the patrols of the Shash-Darak region, which adjoins the so-called Green Zone and is one of the most protected areas of the Afghan capital.

On the same day, the Taliban carried out a bombing of a car at the gates of one of the Afghan military units. Among the dead and wounded, there are Afghan soldiers. The information is confirmed by representatives of a military hospital.

Romanian troops are part of the NATO military contingent in Afghanistan. Moreover, Romania is one of those NATO countries whose leadership has decided not to reduce the number of its military in this country.

In Afghanistan there are soldiers of the 300-th battalion of the Romanian Armed Forces "Sfântul Andrei". They on a rotational basis replaced the servicemen of the 9-th mechanized brigade "Maracesti".

It should be noted that negotiations between the Taliban leaders and US representatives continue in the capital of Qatar.

        As part of the Romanian army, the Vlad Tepes rifle battalion fought against the USSR together with the Germans

        In addition, the Romanian Armed Forces have the 528th reconnaissance battalion Vlad Tepes. The truth is not sure what he really is, since he learned about this battalion from Twitter.

          During the Second World War, the Romanian army was generally the most powerful army on Earth! After all, Hitler they reached Stalingrad, and with Stalin - to Berlin !!! laughing

        When they opened a free passage between Romania and Moldova, then all Moldovans did not ask for their consent, they almost all ranked them as Romanian type defenders, that is, they all were issued Romanian passports with the promise of glass beads, etc., and now they travel more than 80% from Romania Moldovans who did not have time to blame for Ukraine or Russia, so most likely Moldovans and not Romanians, they did the expansion of Moldova, bought everything and exploit stuffing their pockets!

          Well no. Elementary combat skills in a real combat environment. Say what you like, but an officer and a sergeant who were under fire prepare a very different way. I'm not saying that officers who have proved themselves worthy in battle are preferable to promotion.

            I agree with you that even being in an unfriendly territory makes you take the service more seriously. My commanders, at one time, served in the DRA without exception, and almost all of them were indisputable authorities.

        Romania has already lost 2014 of its soldiers by 23 alone, I wonder what Romanian boys pay their lives for, how do they explain this to their citizens? And how patriotic it is, it cannot be compared with "bloody communist totalitarianism", then not one Romanian guy died in Afghanistan.

            Real experience? To do this, you just need to understand what they are doing there. Otherwise, it’s hard to draw conclusions about what kind of experience they get there. In the last war of the American coalition with Iraq, the Ukrainian battalion of chemical protection was on the side of the coalition, like there were all the participants in the hostilities, but what real experience did they get?

              And sweeping a piece of American jurisdiction on Afghan territory with amer dust-free brooms and sprinkling it with American bottled water before the US army drill doesn’t it refer to gaining invaluable combat experience in the conquered territories? laughing

    Romania pays tribute to the United States, as previously paid tribute to the Golden Horde of the conquered peoples.

    Romania gave the USA its market for American goods and merchandise, its territory under the US base, takes part in the maintenance of the US military-industrial complex - buying weapons and sends its soldiers to where the United States requests / orders.

    To us, this also applies to some extent, especially in terms of our market, we buy everything from toothpaste to airplanes from the USA. But, as always, we are quickened and hopeful, we will win, we will both stand our interests and our sales market in order to develop our production, so that we will have new jobs, and not in the USA or in the EU.

      That's about the fact that Romania and partly Russia is a market for American goods, I do not agree with you, because goods made in the USA are too expensive.
      In Russia, especially the lion's share of goods produced, at least in China, by no means in America.

      But only after that he was taken to the lip for a completely inconceivable Anglo-Gypsy accent, because of which the thank-you words were perceived by the Yankees command as a message of the US Armed Forces (and President Trump separately) by 3, and 5 letters, and an attempt to kiss the award-winning boot led to smash the muzzle of a freshly awarded Romanian-Moldovan military man with this boot. laughing

    The Romanians are still warriors ... Thanks to their "heroism" we took the Fritzes in a ring at Stalingrad .. And in Afghanistan they have no place at all, they respected and respected real soldiers, such as Shuravi -Soviet soldiers! And they knew how to fight and build ..
