Earlier this month, explosives-laden drones flew over the Kremlin in a daring show of force against the highly fortified iconic Russian compound. The images alarmed the world, including the Russians, and like anything involving Russia, accusations began to fly.
Was it the same Russians who flew the drones over their beloved Kremlin in an attempt to divert direction? Were the Ukrainians striving valiantly and daringly to eliminate their Enemy #1?
Or was it disaffected Russians trying to overthrow their autocratic leader who had embroiled them in a war they didn’t want to start? Don’t worry; the mystery seems to have been solved thanks to the usual group of anonymous US intelligence officials eager to spill the beans to the closest and most eager reporters.
Remember when literally the whole of MilTwit said the drone attack on the Kremlin was a false flag? https://t.co/QZ4wKHSX2j

It was Ukraine, duh
On May 3, two drones flew over the Kremlin in what appeared to be an assassination attempt on Russian President Vladimir Putin. This week, unnamed US intelligence officials told reporters they had intercepted a Ukrainian communication in which Ukrainian officials discussed their belief that their forces were responsible for the drone strikes, but without the direct supervision of President Volodymyr. Zelenskyy or his senior officials. (Convenient, huh?)
Maybe I’ve read too many Tom Clancy novels, but it seems to me that’s exactly what you’d want America to believe, and if you know (which I’m sure they do) that America is listening, you’d paint that picture to spread. everywhere… which it seems the US intelligence community is trying to do. The same anonymous US officials said they believed the drones were from one of Ukraine’s special military or intelligence units.
It’s hard to get solid intelligence out of the Ukraine, as they rightly fear that anything they tell us could find its way to Russia. Still, the US believes that President Zelenskyy and his top aides have a system in place to ensure their plausible deniability. Essentially, you’ve given your covert units ample parameters and allowed them to execute as they see fit.

This is a clever way to assuage the Biden administration’s alleged concerns that Ukraine may take this war too far, escalating the conflict into a more global issue. However, it does little to appease the Russians.
Russian spokesman Dmitry Peskov explains:
“We immediately said that the kyiv regime was behind this. In the end, it doesn’t matter much which of the kyiv regime units is behind it.”

US intelligence agencies believe that Ukraine’s security services orchestrated the recent drone attack on the Kremlin. Confirmation is pending. Details about the executing unit are unknown.

It is Bsee them all the time
The same anonymous officials who spoke to The New York Times and anyone else listening said the US government believes Ukraine was responsible for other attacks since the war began.
These attacks include:
- The murder of the daughter of a Russian nationalist
- The murder of a pro-Russian blogger
- Attacks on Russian cities near the border with Ukraine
The border attacks are relatively recent, and two pro-Ukrainian groups claim credit; ‘The Russian Volunteer Corps’ and ‘Free Russia Legion’. Interestingly, in the footage of the attack, the pro-Ukrainian groups were using Mine Resistant Ambush Protected (MRAP) vehicles delivered to Ukraine by, you guessed it… the US government.
Adding insult to injury, the footage indicates that Russian forces captured two of our MRAP vehicles and spray-painted them with Russian symbols. Not a great look for the US, but I guess the US government doesn’t care.

State Department spokesman Matthew Miller said of the photos that the United States “did not encourage or allow attacks inside Russia, and we have made that clear.”
“But we have also said that it is up to Ukraine to decide how to conduct this war.”
So all is well; The US government is okay with our weapons being used within Russia’s borders and captured by the enemy; after all, we’ve agreed to that for decades in other conflicts. So why would this one be any different?
Recall the immediate wave of propaganda (from both US and Ukrainian sources) that insisted, without any evidence, that the Kremlin drone strike was a false flag: Putin bombed himself. As usual, no one who spreads that BS will be penalized for “disinformation” https://t.co/6ctx0KZ4HR

These recent revelations from the US intelligence machine have not stopped naysayers from arguing that there is no chance Ukraine is behind all of this, that naturally the Russians attacked their own stronghold of power.
Former Defense Intelligence Agency officer Rebekah Koffler whistled this tune and said:
“I stand by my assessment that the drone strike, like the industrial sabotage operation against Russia’s Nord Stream pipeline, was a false flag operation orchestrated by the Putin regime.”
Those crafty Russians… they sure love to attack themselves, don’t they?
Ms. Koffler goes on to state:
“Ukraine on its own without outside help is incapable of mounting such an operation.”
I find it interesting how the narrative goes back and forth between touting the ingenuity and resilience of the Ukrainian military and claiming that they can’t accomplish anything of importance without the help of a Western ally.
RAND military analyst Dara Massicot responds:
“Seeing how the Kremlin has responded suggests to me that this was an embarrassment and surprise to them, and not a deliberate false flag.”

Ukraine is well known for its penchant for token war efforts such as:
- the ghost of kyiv
- The attack on the Island of Snakes
- Ukrainian dog receives war medal
The theory that these two drones never intended to succeed with their assassination attempt isn’t much of a leap. The image of two drones flying with impunity over the Kremlin is a rather graphic symbol of Ukraine’s war effort.
Another reminder of how quickly this conflict could spiral out of control, courtesy of a seemingly strategic leak to the Times giving the US cover for the Kremlin’s drone strike. I’m not sure having so little control over a war we’re funding makes things look much better… pic.twitter.com/DO1dbnBwUH

without fear of anything
The Biden administration has apparently been slow to arm Ukraine with bigger and better weapons, signaling fears of escalation. Because, of course, we don’t want Russia to see our involvement as a justification for using its nuclear arsenal or attacking other neighboring countries… right?
Every time Biden has ‘caved in’ to international pressure and supplied Ukraine with the weapons it requested. First it was tanks, and now it’s American fighter jets.
Last Friday, President Biden agreed to allow allies to transfer American F-16s to Ukraine and promised to train Ukrainian pilots on the airframe. But of course, all this was done after Zelenskyy pinky promised not to use the fighter jets over Russian skies, but only in defense of Ukraine.
With the US believing that Ukraine is behind these attacks that have occurred on Russian soil and in Russian airspace, it’s hard to really believe that our government is concerned about the escalation, and to be fair, so far Russia still has They have to intensify the war, so perhaps there is nothing to fear, apart from another eternal war. Defense Under Secretary Colin Kahl said it would take 18 to 24 months to train Ukrainian pilots to fly the F-16.
That puts this war right in 2025. Good news for defense contractors, Zelenskyy, and the politicians and activists who carry the Ukrainian flag, bad news for Ukrainian and Russian citizens caught in the crosshairs.
Now that the Washington Post has “revealed” that #Ukraine in fact he was behind the #Kremlin drone strike, these “commenters” who said it was a “false flag” must be unsubscribing as we speak. pic.twitter.com/ezGNTIviv5
