Ukrainian President, Volodimir Zelenskydenied today that his security forces attempted to assassinate the Russian president, Vladimir Putinin a drone attack against the Kremlin allegedly perpetrated by kyiv last morning, as this official Moscow spokesperson has assured.

“We do not attack Putin or Moscow, we only fight on our territory, we defend our towns and cities”, Zelensky said in Helsinki at a joint press conference with the leaders of Finland, Denmark, Sweden, Norway and Iceland.

“We have not attacked Putin, we leave it for a court”Zelensky said, referring to the Ukrainian efforts for the international community to find mechanisms to prosecute the Russian leader for the military aggression against Ukraine.

The Ukrainian president stated that Ukraine does not have “enough weapons” to attack Moscow and attempt to assassinate Putin at his workplace, thus denying the accusations made public today by the Russian presidency.

Asked about the reasons Russia might have for falsely accusing Ukraine Regarding this supposed assassination attempt, which according to the Kremlin would have occurred at dawn yesterday, Zelensky replied that “Russia has no victories to celebrate and you can no longer motivate your audience and send soldiers to die as if nothing had happened.

For this reason, and according to the Ukrainian president, Russia launches these types of accusations to make up for the lack of results up front.

The Russian presidency announced today that Ukraine attempted to make an attempt on Putin’s life last night with two drones that were shot down by Russian anti-aircraft defenses as they headed for their target in the Kremlin.

Zelensky traveled to Helsinki today to participate in a Ukrainian-Nordic summit with the Finnish president and the prime ministers of Denmark, Sweden, Norway and Finland.
