    There have already been warnings about a ‘false flag’ operation to muster up an excuse for stepping up the invasion.

    Geopolitical and security analyst, Michael Horowitz, who shared the footage on Twitter, added: ‘To be clear, this really doesn’t look anything like an assassination attempt.

    Another video of the supposed event was shared on Twitter

    ‘This looks like Ukraine (assuming it was Ukraine) is trying to bring the war home to Russia, by hitting symbolic targets.’

    The Kremlin stated Russian military and security forces stopped the drones prior to they might strike, and no one was injured. It included that particles from the drones fell in the premises of the Moscow landmark without damage.

    Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky rejected any function in the attack, stating: ‘We don’ t attack Putin orMoscow We battle on our area. We’re safeguarding our towns and cities.’

    Ukraine governmental consultant Mykhailo Podolyak rejected any participation, stating: ‘Ukraine has nothing to do with drone attacks on the Kremlin.’

    He included that the claims would offer a pretext for Russia ‘to justify massive strikes on Ukrainian cities, on the civilian population, on infrastructure facilities’ in coming days.

    He added: ‘I would take anything coming out of the Kremlin with a very large shaker of salt. So let’s see. We’ll see what the facts are and it’s really hard to comment or speculate on this without really knowing what the facts are.’

    Russian pro-war analysts have also expressed shock that drones could penetrate defences to the Kremlin, the most sacred fortress in the country.

    A lawmaker who represents Crimea in Moscow, Mikhail Sheremet, has already told Russian state media that the Kremlin should strike on Volodymyr Zelensky’s home in Kyiv in retaliation.

    RIA reported: ‘As a result of the terrorist act, the president was not injured. The schedule of his work has not changed and will continue as usual.

    ‘There were no casualties during the fall and scattering of UAV fragments on the territory of the Kremlin.’

    Russia has massively increased air defences in Moscow and around the dictator’s palaces and residences.

    It is not specified whether he was in his official flat in the Kremlin at the time of the attack.

    Mykhailo Podolyak, adviser to the Ukrainian president, denied his government is behind the attack in a lengthy statement.

    He claimed that drones can be bought in any military store in Russia and that Putin is losing control.

    This comes as Ukrainian forces prepare for a counteroffensive to liberate occupied territories in the east. 

    Shortly before the news about the alleged attack broke, Moscow mayor Sergei Sobyanin issued a ban on using drones in the Russian capital, with an exception for drones launched by authorities.

    He offered no reason for the ban, saying only that it would prevent the ‘illegal use of drones that can hinder the work of law enforcement’.
