Russia to respond to Ukraine’s attack on Kremlin if necessary

TEHRAN, May 04 (MNA) – Russia will respond to Ukraine’s act of terrorism in the form of an attempted drone attack on the Kremlin when it deems it necessary, Russian Ambassador to the United States Anatoly Antonov said on Wednesday.

"How would Americans react if a drone hit the White House, the Capitol, or the Pentagon? The answer is obvious for any politician as well as for an average citizen: the punishment will be harsh and inevitable," TASS quoted as Antonv saying.

"Russia will respond to this insolent and presumptuous terrorist attack. We will answer when we consider it necessary. We will answer in accordance with the assessments of the threat that Kyiv posed to the leadership of our country."

He stressed that the statements by US officials "are striking in their cynicism and absurdity." "The U.S. did not find it possible to recognize the obvious thing - it was a terrorist action planned by the Zelensky regime and an assassination attempt targeting the President of the Russian Federation. Moreover, the timing was not chosen by chance - ahead of Victory Day and the May 9 Parade, where foreign guests are planned to take part in," Antonov said. "The theses that this act of terrorism was allegedly a "false flag operation" are blasphemous and deceitful. That is, it was Russia itself that staged a provocation against the heart of our statehood?!"

According to the Russian diplomat, Moscow hoped that the US administration "would have the guts and dignity to condemn this terrorist act." "The world remembers how, in 2001, the Russian President was the first to lend a helping hand to the American people, who were then subjected to the terrorist attack. Everything is forgotten. Today the United States is shielding Kyiv criminals. The statements of high-ranking officials that Kyiv can choose how to defend itself are the textbook example of double standards, a policy of encouraging the Zelensky regime to attack the Russian Federation. The words of the bureaucrats about allegedly deterring the Kyiv Nazi regime from hitting targets outside its borders are a false farce," he said.

"The atrocities of the Zelensky regime and the indulgence of it by the West only testify to the fact that our adversaries have no desire to seek peace, to save thousands of lives of ordinary Ukrainians. Definitely, we will take this circumstance into account while working out our strategy to implement the goals and objectives of the special military operation," he warned.

On the night on May 3, Ukraine attempted to use two drones to attack the Kremlin residence of Russian President Vladimir Putin, the Kremlin press service reported. The Russian military and special services promptly put them out of order. Putin was not hurt and continued to work routinely. The Kremlin said that it sees this as a planned terrorist attack and an attempt on the Russian president. Russia reserves the right to retaliate at the right moment and the way it finds appropriate, it added.
