Objectivity 4.8 | Credibility 4.8 | Relevance 4,7

An overnight drone strike on the Kremlin has been reported with remarkably close video footage posted on Twitter.  Ukrainian President Zelensky’s office insists that it had anything to do with the strike.  Russian officials are saying the strike was a “terrorist” attempt to assassinate President Putin.  Members of Russia’s State Duma responded with contention and prominent Russian MP Mikhail Sheremet reportedly said, “It’s time to launch a missile attack on Zelensky’s residence.”  The New York Times said, “If confirmed, it would be the most audacious attempted strike on Russian soil since Moscow launched its full-scale invasion of Ukraine in February last year.”  Overnight simultaneously, there were new Russian aerial attacks against Kiev and other locations in Ukraine.  Speculation over the Kremlin drone strike continues.  President Putin was not injured and the drones were “downed,” according to a statement from the Kremlin.
