Did Ukraine Just Try to Kill Putin with Two Drones? Watch
In a brazen act of aggression, Ukraine allegedly attempted to assassinate Russian President Vladimir Putin on Wednesday by launching two drones at the Kremlin. The drones were downed by Russian air defenses, but the incident has raised tensions between the two countries to a new level.
The Kremlin said that the drones were carrying explosives and were aimed at the president’s residence. The Ukrainian government has denied any involvement in the attack, but it is clear that the incident was a serious escalation of the conflict between the two countries.
The attack on the Kremlin comes just days after Russia launched a new offensive in eastern Ukraine. The offensive has been met with fierce resistance from Ukrainian forces, and it has raised fears of a wider war.
Kiev denied responsibility for the attack and claimed that this was a provocation engineered by the Russians to justify even more terrorist attacks on Ukrainian cities.
In the wake of the attack, there has been a growing chorus of calls for the United States and its allies to provide Ukraine with more military assistance. The United States has already provided Ukraine with billions of dollars in weapons and other aid, but many believe that more is needed.
The attack on the Kremlin has also led to calls for a new round of sanctions against Russia. The United States and its allies have already imposed a number of sanctions on Russia, but they have had little effect on the Russian economy.
It is unclear what the future holds for Ukraine and Russia. However, it is clear that the world is at a dangerous crossroads. The choices that are made in the coming days and weeks will have a profound impact on the future of Europe and the world.
Take a look at these posts from Twitter about the chaos this attack has generated:\
