Ukrainian geophysics institute deputy director Aleksandr Kendzera claims that a powerful earthquake of 7 - 7.2 Richter scale degrees will take place in Vrancea, Romania. His Romanian counterpart, Gheorghe Marmureanu rejects the declarations and says that there is no earthquake expected in the last years.

There were even today three earthquakes but small ones, Marmureanu declared. He said that the Ukrainians' arguments are not sustained with provable arguments.
