The person who flew the drone into Kremlin did not make a mistake. The footage is stunning.
Flight path across a full-strike of Russian icons, including St Basil’s onion-domed Cathedral, the Red Square, Lenin’s Mausoleum, the Kremlin walls, and then crashing into a roof beyond.
Ukraine war latest: Russia says Kyiv terrorist machines must be destroyed
It was probably not an assassination, as the Russian Government claimed. Unless Vladimir Putin owns a penthouse on the roof of Kremlin. You can’t fault it for making the attack.
Moscow uses it to accuse Ukraine of more crimes and criticise Western countries for sending Kyiv arms.
The Putin regime will also find it useful as they try to dampen down the Victory Day celebrations next week.
The 9th of May is usually one of the most significant dates on the Russian calendar. It’s when Russians celebrate their victory over Nazi Germany.
The event has been cancelled almost entirely in several Russian cities this year. This is allegedly due to’security’ reasons. Authorities fear Ukraine attacks against large crowds.
They are also scared of something else. The Russians who paraded in the ‘immortal Regiment’ procession would have carried pictures of their relatives who fought against the Germans.
If people had also brought photos of their loved ones who died in Ukraine, it could have been a problem for the regime trying to hide the true extent of the casualties of Putin’s war.
Putin’s ally asks for weapons capable of destroying Kyiv
Fear of an attack has led to a reduction in the celebrations of Victory Day in Russia
Of course, the drone show has sparked a wild guessing game as well as a multitude of conspiracy theories. Was the attack staged by Russia? The attack was filmed in almost all directions and this helps authorities to control the events of next week.
It seems so extravagant. It could have done the same thing by flying into an even smaller landmark. Would the authorities want such pictures to be broadcast around the globe?
On the other hand, perhaps not.
The coming weeks could threaten the Putin regime in a way never seen before
The war for Russia is going badly and could get worse soon. The much-hyped winter and spring offensives never materialised, and Ukraine has now been armed with Western weapons to do their worst.
The next few weeks or months may threaten the Putin regime in a way that has never been seen before.
Hermann Goring, a senior Nazi officer who spoke at the Nuremberg Trials said: “If you find a method to scare people you can get them to do whatever you want.”
The attack on the Russian Government Citadel just days before a major patriotic holiday will have alarmed many Russians and confirmed the claims of the Putin regime, that the Russophobic West will do anything to destroy their country.
The Kremlin won’t complain about the attack if it keeps Russians in check, especially as Putin’s war continues to be a disaster with no end in sight.
