US believes Ukraine was behind Kremlin drone attack


The US administration believes one of Ukraine’s military or intelligence agencies was behind the attempted drone strike on the Kremlin in early May, reports The New York Times.

However, she points out that the US intelligence community does not yet know the details of what happened and that the level of confidence in the current assessment is low.

Citing unnamed administration officials, the publication points out that US intelligence does not yet know which Ukrainian service or special structure might be organizing the attack. They also cannot confirm whether Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy and those close to him knew about the attack.

Some of the newspaper’s sources believe Zelenskyy may not have known about the strike in advance.

The intelligence community’s preliminary assessment is based, among other things, on recorded telephone conversations, which showed that Russian officials were surprised by what happened, which does not support the version that the drone attack was a provocation by Russia itself.

This version, as the New York Times recalls, was expressed by Ukrainian officials.

The New York Times article also points out that the administration is concerned that Russia is holding the United States, as a country supporting Ukraine, responsible for what happened.
