On May 3 2023, video footage of the Kremlin showed two drones appearing and then exploding on its roof. One of these caused a fire.

Russia claimed that it downed the drones, that the damage was minimal, and that no one was injured.

It also took the occasion to accuse Ukraine of an assassination attempt on Putin.

Ukraine denies these allegations, claiming that ‘We don’t attack Putin, or Moscow, we fight on our territory.’
