The Kremlin accused the US on Thursday of being behind the Ukrainian attack on the Kremlin and other attacks on Russian territory, which has been categorically denied by Washington.

Ukrainian President Volodimir Zelensky has also denied any connection to the attack, saying kyiv is only defending itself and not targeting targets on Russian soil.

Maduro already offered Putin “full support” since the beginning of the Russian military campaign in Ukraine, in February 2022.
