Ukraine denies Russian claim Kyiv sent drones to hit Kremlin


Associated Press

KYIV, Ukraine (AP) — Russia claimed it foiled an overnight attack by Ukrainian drones on the Kremlin, calling it an unsuccessful assassination attempt against President Vladimir Putin and promising retaliation for what it termed a “terrorist” act. The Ukrainian president denied it, saying: “We don’t attack Putin or Moscow.” Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said Putin wasn’t in the Kremlin at the time. There was no independent verification of the reported attack, and Russia supplied no evidence to support it. Nor did officials say why it took more than 12 hours to report. If true, the alleged attack is a significant escalation in the 14-month-old conflict.
