Ukrainian agents apparently attempted to assassinate Russian President Vladimir Putin with a drone that had been equipped with explosives. However, the mission appears to have failed after the drone crashed several miles from its target, per the Daily Mail.
Russian President Vladimir Putin may have been the target of an audacious assassination attempt via Kamikaze drone.
“Putin, we are getting closer,” it begins, before describing the events that allegedly took place over the weekend.
A UJ-22 mid-range drone carrying huge quantities of explosives crashed near an industrial park outside of Moscow on Sunday, an incident which Russian media covered.
According to both BILD and Romanenko, Putin was supposed to visit the location, although there are also suggestions that the Russian president was scheduled to appear there on Monday.
Whatever the case may be, it seems Putin never actually showed up, as Kremlin spokesperson Dmitry Peskov is quoted as saying his boss isn’t planning on attending any public events.
