False Flag? Two Men Spotted On Top of Kremlin During Drone Attack

Just hours after Russia downed two drones that were reportedly attempting to assassinate President Vladimir Putin, false flag started to trend on Twitter.

Many users on Twitter found it hard to believe the drones were from Ukraine but believed Russia staged a false flag operation to heat up the war in Ukraine.

One user in particular found it strange that two unidentified people were seen on the Kremlin’s dome just moments before the attack.

Take a look at the two men here:

Eastern Europe expert Sergej Sumlenny broke down some strange facts about the recent drone incident:

Here’s what NBC News is reporting about the attack:

Russia claimed Wednesday that Ukraine tried to assassinate President Vladimir Putin in an overnight drone attack on the Kremlin, news that drew denials from Kyiv and furious demands for retaliation from nationalists in Moscow.

The Kremlin’s accusation, made without providing evidence, was the latest in a string of reported incidents far from the war’s front lines. Kyiv said it had nothing to do with the alleged incident and suggested it could be used as a pretext for a new Russian attack inside Ukraine.

The United States had no advance notice if there was a drone attack against the Kremlin by Ukraine, three U.S. officials told NBC News. Two of the officials expressed skepticism that a drone could get that close to the Kremlin given the fact that Russia has so many air defense systems protecting it.

An attack on the heart of Moscow, even if foiled, would represent a dramatic illustration of Russian vulnerability ahead of an expected Ukrainian counteroffensive that will seek to push the Kremlin’s forces out of of occupied land.

Russian military and special services had disabled two attacking drones, sending debris crashing onto the grounds of the seat of government, the Kremlin said in a statement on its website.

It blamed the alleged attack on Ukraine but said that no one was hurt.

“We view these actions as a planned terrorist attack and an assassination attempt targeting the President, carried out ahead of Victory Day,” the statement said, referring to the May 9 celebration of the Soviet Union’s victory over Nazi Germany in World War II.

“Russia reserves the right to take countermeasures wherever and whenever it deems appropriate,” it added.
