Russia says foiled Ukrainian drone attack on the Kremlin

The Kremlin said on Wednesday it shot down two drones launched by Ukraine and accused Kyiv of attempting to kill Russian President Vladimir Putin.

The alleged thwarted operation comes on the heels of a series of incidents — including trains sabotage — ahead of the popular WWII victory celebrations.

“Today at night, the Kyiv regime attempted to strike the Kremlin residence of the President of the Russian Federation with unmanned aerial vehicles,” the Kremlin said.

“Two unmanned aerial vehicles were aimed at the Kremlin,” it said.

“We regard these actions as a planned terrorist act and an attempt on the life of the President of the Russian Federation.”

Moscow said Putin was not wounded and its forces downed the drone without any casualties.

It said that debris from the drone “fell on the territory of the Kremlin.”

Authorities have tried to reassure Russians that the conflict is distant and does not pose a threat to Russian territory.
