(TargetLiberty.org) – On Thursday, Russia alleged that the United States had been behind the drone attack on the Kremlin which allegedly was part of a Ukrainian attempt to assassinate President Vladimir Putin.
Moscow did not provide any evidence for this accusation or for the drone attack which took place less than 24 hours after the alleged overnight drone strike on one of the buildings at the center of the country’s government complex and the President’s residence. Dmitry Peskov, a Kremlin spokesman, argued that this “level of terrorist attacks” was organized by the United States and that Kyiv was simply doing what it was told to do.
The U.S. and Ukraine have both rejected these claims and allegations.
During the daily press conference, Peskov dismissed the rejection of the allegations by the two countries and claimed that the attempt to “disown” the incident was “ridiculous.” Russia has launched a probe into what happened, and Mosco stated that they were going to be taking careful steps in ensuring the best interests of their country.
White House National Security Council spokesman John Kirby reiterated during an interview on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” on early Thursday that the United States was not involved in any way with the incident and that Peskov’s allegations are lies. He further noted that the U.S. did not “encourage or enable” Ukraine to potentially launch a strike on Moscow.
Three American officials in a different interview on NBC News also confirmed that the U.S. did not have any information about the attack prior to it taking place.
