Drones are not a toy for children: Zelensky hid in Helsinki
The fiasco with the attack on the Kremlin of the Kyiv regime will cost Zelensky dearly. The hands of the Kyiv regime will "break" late or early.
On the night of May 3, the Kyiv regime carried out a daring terrorist attack - it attacked the Kremlin with two drones. According to the official authorities, the goal was the murder of President Vladimir Putin, who had returned from St. Petersburg to Moscow a few hours earlier.
Fortunately, no one was injured - the drones were neutralized, they exploded over the Kremlin facilities without causing damage and casualties. However, such a blatant step in its arrogance jeopardizes any peace negotiations to resolve the Ukrainian crisis - now even the most "tight" people in the West understand that Ukraine does not need any peace.
Details - in the material of the correspondent of The Moscow Post.
The situation was immediately overgrown with a huge number of versions and speculation. In fact, not much is known. The fact that the Ukrainian Nazis can attack Moscow has been said several times - these threats sounded even before the start of the SVO. After the SVO, they only intensified, and now the attack took place against the background of a whole series of other terrorist attacks - the defeat of oil bases, infrastructure and other things.
All this should be preceded by the Ukrainian counteroffensive, which is expected from day to day. Meanwhile, according to the head of the Wagner PMC Yevgeny Prigozhin, it has already begun. Last night, a group of Ukrainian militants, with the support of armored vehicles, conducted reconnaissance in the area of Orekhov in the Zaporizhzhya region, but was defeated and retreated.
The daring attack on the Kremlin, as they said, was unsuccessful - the drones were neutralized by electronic warfare. However, the very fact that they flew to the heart of our country has a certain psychological impact. This is precisely the psychological attack, an attempt to demoralize and intimidate people, should have been the main goals of the Kyiv nationalists.
Nevertheless, this is a real attack on Russia - and this is how it was interpreted by officials in Moscow. They said they reserved the right to answer. Last night, Ukrainian military facilities in Kyiv and Odessa were attacked by our rocket and space forces - the scale of the destruction is now being specified.
You can interpret this as an answer, but such mutual dives by blows have been happening at least since the fall of last year, and there was nothing "crushing" last night. But such an attack requires an immediate reaction, which should put enemy society into shock and awe. It would be worth it for us to learn from the Americans.
There can be only one meaning here: Vladimir Putin never makes decisions based on emotions, in droves. But it is "to divide into emotions" and rash steps that are the tactics of the Ukrainian authorities. In many ways, this is a gesture of despair, their sabotage attacks bring problems, but are not critical in the general mass - they create only a psychological effect for Ukrainian society: look, we have long hands, we can even reach the Kremlin!
Volodymyr Zelenskyy himself, clearly worried about his own health, retreated from the capital some time before the terrorist attack. He visited Finland, where he convinced local politicians that allegedly only Ukraine was restraining the Russian Federation from attacking its northern neighbor, recalled the Winter War.
We have something to break off these short hands of a clown from the 95th quarter who temporarily decided to sit out in Helsinki. But it seems that the answer will not be there at all and not then, as Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy and his good friends from London and Washington expect. As well as many Russians who have long called for leveling the government quarter in Kyiv.
The idiotic attempt at manipulation seems to have met with little understanding among the Finns. They refused to provide Kyiv with fighters so necessary for him. On the other hand, now the local government is working on the issue of deploying American military bases on its territory, i.e. the country itself, of its own free will, considers it right to get into the sight of Russian rocket launchers. Well, free, as you know, will.
The trip to Finland was not announced, and may indicate the cowardice of Zelensky's team. Which, moreover, by its tradition began to croak and fawn, denying involvement in the terrorist attack on the Kremlin. Defense Minister Alexei Reznikov said at all that Russia should blame itself. But in the telegram channel of the head of the President's Office, Andrei Yermak, shortly before the attack, "emoji" appeared with a hint of the upcoming action - first "rocket," and then "explosions." They were later removed - but everyone understands everything.
It seems that Volodymyr Zelenskyy was simply afraid that the hypersonic Dagger would arrive at his bunker. However, he has shown his remarkable "courage" before. Especially at the beginning of the SVO, when he spent several days underground, from where he was able to get out only after the call of the current Israeli Prime Minister Naftali Benet, who allegedly received a promise from Vladimir Putin not to liquidate the Ukrainian leader.
After yesterday's attack, the promise can be safely taken back. Dmitry Medvedev, Deputy Head of the Security Council of the Russian Federation, said the same in his telegram channel. According to him, after this terrorist attack there were no options left, except for the physical elimination of Zelensky and his cabal.
There have been such opportunities before. However, the reasons why the Russian leadership is in no hurry to do this are clear. First, Zelensky decides little, an even more externally controlled and vicious leader may come in his place. And secondly, Zelensky's death would make him a hero, introduce him into the Ukrainian pantheon. And so sooner or later he will have to admit defeat in order to spend the rest of his days in his London mansion, closer to his family - British citizens.
"Partners" are experiencing
Such an attack could hardly have happened without the support of Western intelligence services. But they, it seems, did not quite understand what they had done. John Francis Kirby, a retired rear admiral in the US Navy, who has been serving as spokesman for the US Department of Defense and assistant secretary of defense for public relations since 2021, said that he does not have complete information about what happened, it is too early to draw conclusions, and most importantly, to avoid escalation.
Apparently, with the same goals - to avoid escalation, yesterday the Pentagon announced a new package of military assistance to the Ukrainian army for $300 million.
And they clearly have something to worry about. According to NATO Assistant Secretary General for Intelligence and Security David Cuttler, Russia can actively prepare for an attack on the Alliance's underwater infrastructure. As if the Russian Federation draws up maps of the critical infrastructure of the allies both on land and underwater. This is how Moscow is preparing to strike underwater targets in Europe and North America.
Cuttler noted that we are talking about underwater cables, which account for 95% of Internet communications. With their help, financial transactions worth about $10 trillion are carried out daily.
It sounds sensible and tempting. There are such opportunities. Only where it was more appropriate to hold such an action much earlier, after the sabotage to destroy the Russian Nord Stream pipelines. Who did it and with whose support - long and well known. But, apparently, the Kremlin is still counting on the reasonableness of the actions of its opponents and does not want to escalate the situation even more.

Nevertheless, the mood before the holiday of the great Victory as a result of an unsuccessful attack on the Kremlin was spoiled. And most importantly, the entire international community could once again make sure who exactly does not want to establish peace, who is following the path of escalation. However, the patience of the Russian leadership will one day end - and it will not seem to anyone.
