Zelenskyy hits back at Putin claims – and denies targeting Russian leader’s home with drone attacks


Russia has claimed it stopped two drone attacks on Vladimir Putin’s presidential home overnight.

The Kremlin blamed Ukraine for what it called a “terrorist act”.

It said Russian military and security forces disabled the drones before they could strike.

No victims or damage were reported and Mr Putin was not injured, it added.

“On Wednesday night, the Kyiv regime made an attempt to strike using a UAV the Kremlin residence of Russian President Vladimir Putin,” it said in a statement.

“Two unmanned aerial vehicles were aimed at the Kremlin.

“As a result of timely actions taken by the military and special services with the use of radar warfare systems, the vehicles were disabled.”

Footage on Russian social media appears to show a plume of smoke rising over the Kremlin following the alleged attack.
