In an attempt to kill Putin?
9:15 p.m. Russia accuses Ukraine of attacking the Kremlin with two drones overnight in a failed bid to kill President Vladimir Putin. The Kremlin says the drones were disabled by electronic defenses and that there were no casualties.
“We regard these actions as a planned terrorist act and an attempt on the president’s life, carried out on the eve of Victory Day, the May 9 Parade, at which the presence of foreign guests is also planned,” the Kremlin says.
The Kremlin says Russia reserves the right to retaliate.
Could have been drones? Could have been disabled by electronic defences? Might have been some sort of trial run? Anyone?
