The White House has denied any involvement in the alleged drone attack on the Kremlin after Russian spokesman Dmitry Peskov accused the United States of guiding Ukraine to carry out the assault. John Kirby, a spokesperson for the White House National Security Council, stated that the accusations made by Peskov were false, and that they had nothing to do with the attack.
Russia claims that Ukraine conducted a “terrorist attack” on Tuesday night, intending to assassinate President Vladimir Putin, but Kyiv has refuted the accusation. According to Putin’s long-term press secretary Peskov, the decision on such attacks is made in Washington and not in Kyiv, and that Kyiv only follows orders.
There have been several recent explosions and trail derailments on Russian and occupied Ukrainian territory, adding to the tension between the two nations. Kirby emphasized that Washington does not condone attacks by Ukraine beyond its borders and has clearly communicated this to Kyiv.
He stated that the United States has publicly and privately made it clear that they do not encourage or enable Ukraine to strike beyond its borders.
