Russia Claims Ukrainian Drone Attempt On Putin's Life Successfully Thwarted

Russia has reported that it successfully stopped a drone strike that targeted President Vladimir Putin.

Moscow released dramatic video footage showing what it claims was a "terrorist attack" on the Kremlin.

"Two unmanned aerial vehicles were aimed at the Kremlin," said the Russian government.

The report came through the official Russian communication channel Tass this week.

Russian officials said they fended off an attack against the heart of the country by Ukrainian drones.

"Ukraine has not yet claimed the attack and Russia has not offered any hard evidence of what happened. Nevertheless, it is claimed President Volodymyr Zelesnky’s chief of staff posted 'fire emojis' to his personal Telegram channel after the news broke but swiftly deleted them," according to Breitbart.

"Russia was clear in its accusation that Ukraine was responsible for the overnight attack, and Ukraine was initially silent," according to Breitbart. "While no official statement through state channels has yet been issued, government spokesmen have spoken through Western media outlets to not only deny involvement, but to suggest the attack may have been the work of guerillas working inside Russia."

"The emergence of unidentified unmanned aerial vehicles at energy facilities or on Kremlin’s territory can only indicate the guerrilla activities of local resistance forces. As you know, drones can be bought at any military store," said Mykhaylo Podolyak, a Ukraine government advisor.

"The loss of power control over the country by Putin’s clan is obvious. But on the other hand, Russia has repeatedly talked about its total control over the air. In a word, something is happening in [The Russian Federation], but definitely without Ukraine’s drones over the Kremlin," he added.

Sergiy Nykyforov, Ukraine's press secretary, said, "We do not have information on so called night attacks on Kremlin… As President Zelensky has stated numerous times before, Ukraine uses all means at its disposal to free its own territory, not to attack others."
