Russia claimed Ukraine launched an attempt to kill Russian President Vladimir Putin with a drone strike on the Kremlin overnight on Wednesday, an extraordinary allegation that was met with forceful denials in Kyiv. The Kremlin said the attack was foiled and the alleged drones destroyed. Video that appeared on social media showed a bright flash and a puff of smoke over a part of the Kremlin, the official residence of the Russian president and the most potent symbol of power in Moscow. The Kremlin said it regarded the alleged attack as terrorism and a deliberate attempt on Putin’s life. Ukraine denied involvement in the alleged strike.

US officials were still assessing the incident, and had no information about who might have been responsible. Moscow said the alleged attack took place in the early hours of Wednesday, and the Russian president was not in the building at the time.
