Drone Attack on the Kremlin: Did Ukraine Attempt to Assassinate Putin? Or…

A drone attack on the Kremlin overnight was painted by Russian News media as an attempt to assassinate Vladimir Putin. The question is, did Ukraine do it or someone from inside Russia? Or was it a false flag operation, since Putin was not at home when it occurred.

Two drones reportedly came close to hitting the Kremlin, according to Russia, but were taken down by “the use of radar warfare systems.” The problem with that narrative is that the Kremlin is surrounded by numerous “radar warfare systems” and as such it would be difficult for any outside drone to get that close.

Russia is blaming Ukraine. Ukraine denies it had anything to do with the attack. Russia said that Putin was not at the Kremlin residence last night and he is fine, according to the official statement. They did, however, “reserve the right” to retaliate any way they see fit. It is that possible retaliation toward Ukraine’s President Zelensky that has some concerned.

Recent attempts by Ukraine inside Russia have seen drone attacks on everything from trains to fuel depots. They are widely thought to be from Ukraine operatives. But any attempt to “assassinate Putin” at the Kremlin could be a false flag operation meant to set up Ukraine for a major offensive, or an attempt by an inside dissent group to get rid of Putin. In any event, the retaliation could pose a serious consequence.

We haven’t yet seen any evidence that there’s some sort of internal Russian effort to bring about a coup – what the Russians would historically call a putsch. Nor are we seeing any signs yet that anyone inside Russia has tried to assassinate Putin.

But I have to tell you that my instinct is this: As Russia loses this war in Ukraine; as more and more Russian soldiers die on the battlefield in Ukraine; as Putin is seen as ruining the Russian economy more and more, thus bringing international condemnation upon Russia – isolation, sanctions and humiliation – there’s going to be enormous and growing pressure inside Russia to remove Vladimir Putin from power in whatever way possible, whether a putsch or an assassination.

That doesn’t mean that such efforts would be successful, nor does it mean that whoever would follow Putin would be any better. Joel Rosenberg, All Israel News
