Russia accuses Ukraine of Putin assassination attempt

The Kremlin has accused Ukraine of making an attempt to assassinate Russian president Vladimir Putin in a drone assault.

State newswire Ria Novosti on Wednesday reported that Russia’s army and secret providers acted in a “well timed” style to shoot down two Ukrainian drones that attacked the Kremlin in a single day.

The Kremlin mentioned in a press release that the alleged strike was “a deliberate terrorist assault and tried assassination of the president of Russia”.

Putin was unhurt and no casualties or injury have been sustained throughout the alleged assault, based on the Kremlin.

It was not instantly clear whether or not the alleged assault occurred. Professional-Kremlin social media channels posted movies of what seemed to be anti-aircraft hearth above the Kremlin late at night time.
