Moscow has accused Kyiv of attacking the Kremlin and Moscow has threatened to retaliate against Ukraine for their so called “terrorist attack” in attempting to assassinated Vladimir Putin.
The speaker of Russia’s parliament Vyacheslav Volodin said Russia must now not negotiate with Ukraine after the Kremlin “attack.”
Volodin is demanding that Russia should now use “weapons capable of stopping and destroying the Kyiv terrorist regime.”
He said that “regime” in Ukraine is threatening the security of “Russia, Europe and the whole world” after the “attack on Russia.”

Professor of Strategic Studies, at the university of St Andrews said, “Dont know what to make of this–but if it was the Ukrainians, it was almost certainly not an attack aimed at Putin (unless he sleeps completely exposed in the roof).
“Imagine if it was the Ukrainians–it was a psychological ploy to destablize the Russians.”
Michael A. Horowitz Geopolitical and security analyst said on Twitter, “I get all the “false-flag” theories on the #Kremlin attack (and given #Moscow‘s history I don’t rule anything out), but honestly this is too humiliating.
“I mean a drone reached the Kremlin. How can that be the narrative you want to sell as Russia?”
In a statement the Kremlin said, “On Wednesday night, the Kyiv regime made an attempt to strike using a UAV the Kremlin residence of Russian President Vladimir Putin.
“Two unmanned aerial vehicles were aimed at the Kremlin.
“As a result of timely actions taken by the military and special services with the use of radar warfare systems, the vehicles were disabled.”
Experts have expressed their scepticism over the alleged “assassination attempt” and are suggesting this could be false flag attack.
Presidential adviser Mykhailo Podolyak has warned that Russia may well be preparing for a large-scale attack against Ukraine.
“Of course, Ukraine has nothing to do with drone attacks on the Kremlin. We do not attack the Kremlin because, first of all, it does not resolve any military problems,” he said.
“And most importantly, it would allow Russia to justify massive strikes on Ukrainian cities, on the civilian population, on infrastructure facilities. Why do we need this?”
He added, “In my opinion, it is absolutely obvious that both ‘reports about an attack on the Kremlin’ and simultaneously the supposed detention of Ukrainian saboteurs in Crimea… clearly indicate the preparation of a large-scale terrorist provocation by Russia in the coming days.”
