In breaking news, the Kremlin has claimed that it successfully repulsed an attempted drone attack on the heart of the Russian government overnight. According to Russian state media agency TASS, two unmanned UAVs were aimed at the presidential residence in the Kremlin, but the military and special services used "radar warfare systems" to disable the devices.
The Kremlin has described the incident as a "planned terrorist act and an attempt on the life of the President of the Russian Federation," despite no injuries or material damage being caused. Russian President Vladimir Putin was reportedly not injured in the purported attack, but the Kremlin provided no evidence to back up its claim of an attempted attack.
Despite the lack of evidence, Moscow regards the attack as a serious threat and has warned that it reserves the right to take retaliatory measures. Moscow Mayor Sergey Sobyanin has also announced a ban on the launch of drones in the capital, except for those "used by state authorities."
Ukrainian officials have denied any involvement in the alleged attack and instead suggested that it might suggest Russia is planning a large-scale "terrorist" attack against Ukraine in the coming days. This accusation has been met with skepticism by Russian authorities, who continue to investigate the incident.
