Ukraine tried to attack the Kremlin with drones

Ukraine tried to attack the Kremlin with drones on the night of Tuesday to Wednesday. The action is considered an assassination attempt on President Vladimir Putin, the Kremlin said, calling the attack a planned terrorist attack, Russia Today reports.

“As a result of the timely actions of the military and special services with the use of radar warfare, the vehicles were decommissioned,” the Kremlin press service said, adding that two UAVs were aimed towards the Kremlin.

“We consider these actions as a planned terrorist attack and an attempt on the president, committed on the eve of Victory Day, the May 9 Parade, in which the presence of foreign guests is also planned,” he added.

Neither Putin nor anyone else was hurt in the attack. The president’s work schedule has not changed.

There was also no material damage from the drone fragments that fell into the Kremlin.

“The Russian side reserves the right to give an answer where and when it deems it appropriate,” the Kremlin’s press service said.

For his part, Moscow Mayor Sergei Sobyanin said that since May 3, the use of unmanned aerial vehicles in the city is prohibited, except by decision of state authorities.

According to him, the decision is aimed at not interfering with the work of law enforcement agencies. “I remind you that the unauthorized launch of an unmanned aerial vehicle is a crime and entails administrative and criminal liability,” Sobyanin said.
