US State Department approved probable HIMARS sales to Romania, and related support and equipment.  The estimated cost is $1.25 billion, as the press service of the Defense Security Cooperation Agency informs.

“The proposed sale of this equipment and support will not alter the basic military balance in the region,” the message says.

The DSCA emphasizes, that this notice of potential sale doesn’t mean the sale has been concluded.

This June, Russia threatened to react if NATO deploys forces in Europe. "NATO is building a new military security situation that we cannot ignore, that we should address using our own military instruments," Ambassador Alexander Grushko said in Brussels.
