Cheers as malfunctioning Ukraine drone shot down over Kyiv – video
Our defence and safety editor, Dan Sabbagh, has produced some evaluation on the current Kremlin drone assault, writing that regardless of Zelenskiy’s denials it mirrors Kyiv’s ways.
Who precisely flew two drones over the Kremlin at round 3am on Wednesday is more likely to be one among many questions that can stay unanswered till the Ukraine conflict ends, if not some whereas after that.
However it’s curious what number of wish to speculate a couple of Kremlin false-flag operation given how embarrassing it’s to see video footage of drones flying over the Senate dome, housing Vladimir Putin’s presidential places of work, earlier than they have been blown up.
The response in Russia – the place civilian drone flights have been banned in dozens of areas and GPS is being jammed in Moscow – suggests panic and a tightening of digital safety, slightly than a deliberate escalation, he writes.
Think about the extra believable various. Ukraine, and partisan teams aligned to it, have been build up their capabilities all through the conflict. Drone assaults inside Russia – generally at nice distances – are nothing new.
