Secretary of State Blinken Dismisses Russia’s Accusation Against Ukraine
Secretary of State Antony Blinken has dismissed Russia’s accusation that Ukraine attempted to assassinate Russian President Vladimir Putin by trying to strike the Kremlin. In a conversation with The Washington Post’s David Ignatius, Blinken said that he has “seen the reports,” but “can’t in any way validate them” as “we simply don’t know.” Blinken went on to say, “I would take anything coming out of the Kremlin with a very large shaker of salt.”
Ukraine Under Daily Assault
When it comes to Ukraine, Blinken emphasized that the country is under daily assault by Russian aggression. Its citizens, including men, women, and children, are being bombed out of their homes, apartments, and streets. Families are being torn apart, and children are being killed. Blinken stated that it is up to Ukraine to decide how it will defend itself and how it will try to get back the territory that has been seized from it illegally by Russia over the past 14 months and going back to 2014.
Video of Drone Intercepted Over Kremlin
A video posted on the Telegram channel of a local Moscow news outlet showed what appeared to be a drone intercepted over the Kremlin, causing an explosion above the building. However, the video’s authenticity has yet to be confirmed. Russia claimed that this was a “terrorist” act by Ukraine, but Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy rebutted Moscow’s accusation, stating that “We don’t attack Putin or Moscow.”
It is important to take any news coming out of the Kremlin with a grain of salt, especially when it comes to accusations against Ukraine. The situation in Ukraine is dire, and it is up to the country to defend itself against Russian aggression. Let’s hope for a peaceful resolution to this ongoing conflict.
