Countries with a travel risk that Romanians should avoid in 2022. The MAE warns people not to visit these places

Due to the political and armed conflicts that take place on the territories of some countries, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs sends Romanian citizens to avoid traveling to those countries.

Ukraine and Russia are not the only countries for which the Ministry of Foreign Affairs has issued travel warnings.

On September 17, one of the largest protests in recent years took place in Iran. The women came out to protest after 22-year-old Masha Amini died after being detained and mistreated by the police.

The young woman was detained by the police because she was not wearing a hijab, and according to the young woman’s family, the authorities tortured her, causing her serious injuries, which ultimately led to her death.

In protest, women in Iran took to the streets, took off their hijabs and set them on fire.
