Russia accuses US of involvement in a drone attack at the Kremlin, while Ukraine and Russia escalate their wartime rhetoric.
The Kremlin alleges that the US was behind the alleged assassination attempt, while Ukraine denies these allegations.
Russia launched a series of strikes in Ukraine overnight in retaliation for this incident.
The US National Security Spokesman, John Kirby, denies any US involvement, stating that Russian claims are wrong and have no factual merit.
The alleged assassination attempt occurred earlier this week, with video footage showing two drones flying over the Kremlin before one exploded.
The timing of this incident is significant, as Russia’s Victory Day celebrations are approaching.
Some Russian nationalists are using this as a springboard to try to physically eliminate Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy.
However, many national security analysts do not believe this is an assassination attempt and dismiss the idea as ludicrous.
