Amid mounting Russian anger over the assassination attempt on President Vladimir Putin, US Secretary of State Anthony Blinken today (Wednesday) questioned the Kremlin’s statements that the Russian president had been subjected to an assassination attempt.
Blinken said in an interview with the Washington Post: The United States cannot verify reports that Russian President Vladimir Putin was targeted by a strike with a march on the Kremlin, adding, “We look with suspicion at everything emanating from the Kremlin, and we cannot verify the attack on it. We are simply We do not know”.
He pointed out that the Ukrainian war represents a strategic mistake for Russia, expressing his country’s confidence that Ukraine will be able to regain control of more of its lands.
Meanwhile, the Speaker of the Russian Parliament, Vyacheslav Volodin, called today for the elimination of the Ukrainian regime after the attack by drones on the Kremlin.
Volodin said: It is not possible to negotiate with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky now, stressing the need to use weapons capable of deterring and destroying the regime in Kiev.
Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said today that Ukraine tried to attack the Kremlin building last night using two marches, with the aim of killing President Vladimir Putin, while Ukraine denied its connection to the attack, saying that it does not achieve anything for it and pushes Russia to take more extreme measures.
