Kremlin drone attack: Russia accused Ukraine of targeting Putin

Russian authorities accused Ukraine of trying to carry out drone strikes on the Kremlin to assassinate President Vladimir Putin.

Ukraine denied any involvement and accused Moscow of using the incident as a pretext for escalating attacks in Ukraine.

Russian air defenses shot down two drones attempting to strike Putin's residence inside the Kremlin walls.

The Kremlin regarded the actions as a planned terrorist act and an attempt on the life of the president.

Ukrainian officials rejected the accusation, and the US expressed skepticism about the reports of an attack.

The Russian government warned of eventual retaliation for the alleged plot.
