Kremlin takes all required precautions ahead of Victory Day: Peskov
The Kremlin spokesperson Dmitry Peskov confirms that the Kremlin has taken all necessary security precautions ahead of Moscow's Victory Day parade.
Dmitry Peskov, a Kremlin spokesman, said on Monday that all required security precautions are being made for the May 9 Victory Day Parade in Moscow.
"All the necessary security measures are being taken ... especially when we are talking about the presence of foreign guests, the presence of our head of state," Peskov told Russia's Channel One.
The Kremlin, earlier, had also confirmed that the plans of Russian President Vladimir Putin who is scheduled to deliver a speech on May 9 during a military parade celebrating Victory Day, remain unchanged.
It is worth noting that the leaders of Armenia, Kyrgyzstan, Kazakhstan, Tajikistan, and Uzbekistan are expected to visit the parade.
US masterminded drone attack on Kremlin: Russia
Russia, on Thursday, accused the US of masterminding a drone attack on the Kremlin, pointing out that sabotage attacks by Ukraine behind Russian lines had reached "unprecedented momentum".
On Wednesday, the Kremlin said that Kiev attempted to strike the Kremlin residence of the Russian President with unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) on Tuesday night -- a charge which Kiev has denied.
"Decisions on such attacks are not made in Kiev, but in Washington," Kremlin Spokesperson Dmitry Peskov told a briefing, adding that "Kiev only does what it is told to do."
"Washington should understand clearly that we know this," he stressed.
Peskov slammed the attempts by Kiev and Washington to disown the attempted drone attack on the Kremlin as ridiculous.
The Kremlin Spokesperson further confirmed that he will not comment on whether Moscow shares the opinion of Deputy Chairman of the Russian Security Council Dmitry Medvedev on the need to "eliminate" Kiev leadership.
Medvedev wrote on Telegram that Russia has no other options but to "eliminate Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy" after the recent drone attack on the Kremlin residence of Russian President Vladimir Putin.
"I will leave this question without comment," Peskov said, commenting on a relevant question.
The Russian official said no special address by Russian President Vladimir Putin is expected in light of the drone attack on the Kremlin.
"There are no plans for any special address [by Putin]," he told reporters.
Peskov refused to provide any details regarding Russia's response to the attack on the presidential residence, pointing out that only thoughtful steps that correspond to the interests of the country can be taken.
