Russia: Russia blames Ukraine for attempting to kill Vladimir Putin with Kremlin drone strike
Kyiv has been accused by Moscow of attempting a drone strike on the Kremlin with the intention of killing Vladimir Putin, the Russian president.
On Wednesday, the Kremlin stated that two drones had been used in the alleged attack, but Russian defenses had disabled them.
The Kremlin said in a statement that was posted on its website that it thought the attack was a planned terrorist act and an attempt to kill the Russian Federation’s president.
“Two automated ethereal vehicles were focused on the Kremlin. “The vehicles were put out of action as a result of timely actions taken by the military and special services with the use of radar warfare systems,” the Kremlin press service stated.
According to the Kremlin, “the Russian side reserves the right to take retaliatory measures where and when it sees fit,” “there were no victims and material damage.”
The Kremlin stated, “The president was not injured as a result of the terrorist attack.”
Putin’s representative, Dmitry Peskov, said Putin was not in that frame of mind at the hour of the supposed strike. Peskov went on to say that Putin would spend the day at the state residence in Novo-Ogoryovo, outside of Moscow.
One unconfirmed video flowing via virtual entertainment showed what had all the earmarks of being smoke emerging from the Kremlin short-term. After the alleged incident at the Kremlin, a split second appeared to show the moment one of the drones struck the rooftop buildings within the walled Kremlin complex.
Ukraine has up until this point not remarked on the case.
Over the course of the fighting, Russia has been the target of numerous embarrassing drone attacks on its military bases and fuel depots, including in occupied Crimea. In a different episode on Wednesday, a significant fire at a fuel warehouse in southern Russia’s Krasnodar district broke out because of what nearby specialists said was a robot assault on the office.
Wednesday’s supposed robot on the Kremlin came days before the 9 May Triumph Day march that denotes the Soviet triumph over Nazi Germany. The Triumph Day march on Red Square, which is situated close to the Kremlin, is a profoundly representative yearly exhibition of military could in Russia.
Due to concerns about Ukrainian strikes, several regions of the country cancelled their parades prior to the alleged drone attack on Wednesday. Despite the incident on Wednesday, the parade would continue in Moscow, according to the Kremlin.
