Russia Claims Ukraine Attempted to Assassinate Putin with Drone Strike

Russia claims Ukraine attempted to assassinate President Vladimir Putin in an overnight drone strike that targeted the Kremlin.

Dramatic video footage shows the attack, which was described as an act of “terrorism.”

“Two unmanned aerial vehicles were aimed at the Kremlin,” the Russian government said on Wednesday morning, releasing a statement that they had fended off an attack against their leader.

Ukraine has not yet claimed the attack, while there is no solid evidence it occurred.

However, President Volodymyr Zelesnky’s chief of staff posted “fire emojis” to his personal Telegram channel not long after the news broke but later deleted them.

While the alleged attack’s details are unclear, Russia said there were no casualties or “material damage.”

As Breitbart notes, the President was not staying at the Kremlin last night and had not been harmed, and Russia released new photographs of Putin having meetings “outside of Moscow” Wednesday morning.

Russia said:

“Tonight, the Kyiv regime made an attempt to strike with unmanned aerial vehicles on the Kremlin residence of the President of the Russian Federation… 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 devices were put out of action.”

Russia Today claimed the drones were brought down using Electronic Warfare equipment.

As the outlet continues:

The assertion that air defense systems at the Kremlin were successful in fending off the attack after several videos purporting to show the strike and its aftermath began to circulate on social media, and suggest it was a very close call for the Russians, with one drone apparently being intercepted right over the roof of one government building.

Only one of those videos appears to have been semi-officially acknowledged by the Russian government and shows a column of smoke rising above the Kremlin.

Others, including a major blast in the sky and a burning building, are also circulating but have not yet been acknowledged in the same way.

Watch

The Kremlin said:

“We regard these actions as a planned terrorist act and an attempt on the life of the President of the Russian Federation, carried out on the eve of Victory Day, the May 9 parade, at which the presence of foreign guests is also planned.”

The Russian government added:

“We are, of course, aware that the Kyiv regime, which is behind a number of such attacks and terrorist acts, plans to continue this tactic… All our special services have been doing everything that is necessary to ensure security. Intensive and concerted work is underway.”

The Kremlin spokesman added that the invasion of Ukraine was continuing to “eliminate threats to our country.”

Russia also claimed that another Ukrainian drone strike against President Putin earlier this week.

Russia acknowledged that a Ukrainian drone “packed with explosives” had crash-landed on the outskirts of Moscow.

Dan Bongino Drops Bombshell with Stunning Revelation on Secret Service Failures Surrounding Tump Shooting Former Secret Service agent Dan Bongino made a stunning revelation about security failures which led to former president Donald Trump coming within inches of being assassinated. During an appearance on Donald Trump Jr.'s podcast "Triggered," Bongino revealed that the rooftop from which the failed Trump assassin Thomas Matthew Crooks fired shots, was supposed to be covered by law enforcement personnel. Bongino revealed he was told this by an "unimpeachable source" who was knowledgeable about the situation. "That post, according to my source, that roof was supposed to be a police post. It was supposed to be someone there," he said. "They're now making up excuses, saying the pitch of the roof… my source says to me, no one knows why the post didn't show up," Bongino revealed. He added that Secret Service Director Kim Cheatle has been instructed by Department of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas to "keep her mouth shut if she wants to remain in her post. Cheatle has refused to resign from her post following the aftermath of the assassination attempt. The Secret Service identified a high-profile security vulnerability in the building but failed to protect the rooftop. Moreover, security forces did not take notice of Crooks roughly 30 minutes before the shooting. One law enforcement asset even managed to snap a photo of the suspect, though he was not confronted. Cheatle attempted to explain why the rooftop wasn't covered. "That building in particular has a sloped roof at its highest point. And so, you know, there's a safety factor that would be considered there that we wouldn't want to put somebody up on a sloped roof," the Secret Service director said in a statement to ABC News. "And so, you know, the decision was made to secure the building, from inside." "They're not putting that out there. But if you get those site post logs and those police instructions and it was a post on there and they didn't show up and no one checked, someone could have got your dad killed," Bongino said. "Within millimeters." Bongino said he would be revealing more details on his podcast. ""You're telling me the best technology you have was deployed and you missed a shooter 130 yards? Say it was 200 yards," Bongino told Fox News. The Secret Service CS team, Pete, the counter-sniper team? And I'm not sure those two guys are Secret Service. We have to remember that we don't always, when we go to New York sometimes with high-level protectees we'll use NYPD ESU counter-sniper. So I'm not really sure." "Either way, they'd still be briefed in. The question we have to ask is, if that's the best technology we have, and we had a CS team up there with a shooter that, you know, we're trained out to a thousand yards in the Secret Service with the counter-sniper team. How did they miss someone at most, you know, one-fifth of the way there? It doesn't make any sense."
