On May 4, White House National Security Council spokesman John Kirby stated that the United States played no role in the drone attack on the Kremlin, the official residence of the Russian President, and that the United States neither encourages nor allows
Kirby said U.S. government officials were not sure who was behind the attack but were working to gather more information.
Earlier in the day, Russia’s ambassador to the United States, Antonov, said the U.S. response to Ukraine’s drone attack on the Kremlin, the residence of the Russian president, was “shocking” and that the U.S. was shielding Ukraine. A US White House official said on May 3 that it is not yet possible to judge whether the incident was an act by Russia to frame Ukraine.
According to a report by the TASS news agency on the 4th, the Russian ambassador to the United States, Antonov, believed that the comments made by US officials on the current situation were “shocking,” “shameless,” and “absurd.” “If drones attack the White House, the Capitol, or the Pentagon, how will the Americans react? The answer is obvious to anyone, and there will be a severe response to the attack.” Assess the threat posed by leaders and respond accordingly to terrorist attacks, if necessary. Antonov hopes that the U.S. government will have the ability and decency to condemn this terrorist act. He believes that the United States is shielding Ukraine.
The Investigative Committee of the Russian Federation stated on social media that it has launched a criminal investigation into the Ukrainian attempt to use a drone to attack the Kremlin.
