Kremlin Drone Attack: Whodunnit?
Listen to an audio reading of this article:
As always, every incident of significance, concerning the special military operation (not war) in the Ukraine is fair game for the spin doctors on all sides. Allegedly, two unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV, otherwise known as drones) flew over the Kremlin the night of May 3rd at approximately 2 a.m. Russian air defence shot down both drones with some electronic/radar technology.

Moscow accused the Ukraine of committing an “act of terrorism” with the goal of assassinating Russian President Vladimir Putin. The president was apparently not in the building at the time. No damages or injuries were reported, and thus far, the Kremlin has not released any photographs or evidence of the debris that would indicate it was a Ukrainian drone.
The Kremlin presidential press service released a statement:
Last night, the Kiev regime attempted a drone strike against the residence of the President of the Russian Federation at the Kremlin.
Two unmanned aerial vehicles targeted the Kremlin. Timely action by the military and special services involving radar systems enabled them to disable the devices. They crashed in the Kremlin grounds, scattering fragments without causing any casualties or damage.
We view these actions as a planned terrorist attack and an assassination attempt targeting the President, carried out ahead of Victory Day and the May 9 Parade, where foreign guests are expected to be present, among others.
The President has not suffered in this terrorist attack. His working schedule remains unchanged and follows its ordinary course.
Russia reserves the right to take countermeasures wherever and whenever it deems appropriate.
Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky denied his country was behind the attack. “We are not attacking Putin or Moscow,” he said at a news conference in the Finnish capital, Helsinki, where he was meeting the prime ministers of four Nordic nations. However, the Ukrainian newspaper, Kyiv Post, seemingly accepted responsibility for the attack, satirising that the Ukraine Postal Service was issuing a new postage stamp:
James Nixey, the director of the Russia and Eurasia program at the Chatham House think tank in London, tweeted his skepticism on his Twitter feed:
“Let’s be clear on what this is not. It’s not an assassination attempt on Vladimir Putin. That’s just what the Kremlin is saying,” he commented on his Twitter feed.
“The two most likely possibilities are a ‘warning shot across the bows’ by Kyiv or a false flag operation by Moscow designed to justify more intense attacks in Ukraine or more conscription,” he said.
The American media chimed in with a chorus of “experts” all claiming it was a false flag operation.
Twitter anti-Russian parody account, Darth Putin commented ironically:
US Secretary of State Antony Blinken stated at a global press conference, "I would take anything coming out of the Kremlin with a very large shaker of salt."
Ukraine has denied the Kremlin’s claims that it sent drones to attack the president. Ukrainian presidential advisor Mykhailo Podolyak said in a tweet that Ukraine has fought an “exclusively defensive war” and has not targeted any territory inside Russia.
Opinions are like annoying relatives — everybody has one. Considering the precariousness of truth in the media, we might be tempted to speculate that events like this one, never happened. It is not outside the realm of possibility that Russia fabricated the video using CGI.
Having said that, it is unlikely that the Russian president sleeps on the roof of the Kremlin. For security purposes, it is probable that Putin sleeps in a bunker or at an undisclosed, rotating location outside the Kremlin government buildings.
Another possibility is that unknown third parties committed the drone attack to further stir the pot and create escalating conflict between Russia, the Ukraine and the West. Who would want the war to escalate and continue?
This takes us down the rabbit hole into murky territories. Many within the Freedom community are quick to jump on the pro-Russia bandwagon, because “the enemy of my enemy is my friend.” But as this intrepid journalist/political dissident has pointed out, the Russians are accomplices in the crime-demic on all levels:
There is something strange about the entire Russian special military operation. The not-war is now 14-months old, and it is not showing any signs of ending. Both sides are engaging in propaganda campaigns. This is hardly surprising. All nations engage in propaganda campaigns in wartime. War is the suppression of all laws, rules, morals and ethical norms. During war, it is suddenly okay to murder, rape, steal and lie.
Is there a broader agenda? Are the Russian oligarchs in league with the WEF globalists and the USA/NATO elites? Are Zelensky and Putin on the same team? This seems unlikely, and it is also outside of the scope of this article, so it will have to wait.
Until we meet again, dosvedanya, comrade.
