Ukrainian attack on Kremlin is a criminal provocation
On Wednesday, two drones exploded over the Kremlin in Moscow, the official residence of the president of the Russian Federation. Russia’s Foreign Ministry called the explosions an attempt by the Ukrainian government to assassinate Russian President Vladimir Putin. “We regard these actions as a planned terrorist act and an attempt on the life of the President,” Moscow said.
The Ukrainian attack on the Kremlin and attempted assassination of Putin is a criminally reckless provocation, serving no other purpose than to provoke retaliation by Russia that would then be used to justify a massive escalation of NATO’s involvement in the war.
Critically, the attack on the Kremlin took place just after Zelensky had left Ukraine for NATO territory, arriving in Finland just hours ahead of the bombings, in what was no doubt an effort to shield him from retaliation in kind by Moscow.

Some Chinese experts considered the attack as likely to be linked with Ukraine extremists who advocate prolonging the Russia-Ukraine conflict and coercing high ranking Ukrainian officials to continue the fight, while the odds are that there was support or even encouragement from international hegemonic forces for the operation.

By Dimitris Konstantakopoulos
“Thank you USA” writes on his twitter account the former Foreign Minister of Poland, member of the Steering Committee of the Bilderberg Club and current MEP Roman Sikorski . (https://news.antiwar.com/2022/09/27/explosions-cause-major-damage-to-both-nord-stream-pipelines/). Sikorsky is referring to the sabotage, according to all indications, of the two undersea Nord Stream pipelines able to carry natural gas from Russia to Germany. Sikorsky rejoices that Russia is paying the price for Ukraine and sees the twenty billion-dollar pipeline lying useless in the depths of the Baltic Sea.
The United States deny of course having any connection to the pipeline sabotage. But normally suspicions are falling on them, given the numerous declarations by US officials against the pipelines. Last January for example, President Biden himself had the following dialogue with journalists
