This is the first indirect confirmation of Ukraine’s attacks on the territory of the Russian Federation.
The Main Directorate of Intelligence of the Ministry of Defense of Ukraine confirmed that the Kremlin is in the zone of damage by the means of the Armed Forces of Ukraine. That is why in Moscow started deploying air defense systems.
Such information was shared by the Deputy Chairman of the State Administration of Ukraine, Vadym Skibitsky, on the air of the national telethon. He indirectly confirmed for the first time that Ukraine carried out strikes on the territory of Russia. At one point, the presenter said that the Rashists “don’t put anti-aircraft defense around Engels, they put it in the Kremlin area.”
Skibitsky replied: “But it was after Engels. This suggests that if we reach Engels, we will also reach the Kremlin.” We will remind you that earlier Ukraine did not confirm its participation in the explosions at the airbase in the Russian Federation. Official Kyiv adheres to the position: the events on the territory of Russia are the problems of the aggressor state.
