White House comments on drone attack on Kremlin
On Wednesday, 3 April, Karine Jean-Pierre, the spokeswoman of the White House, said that the United States could not yet confirm the credibility of reports of a drone attack on the Kremlin.
Speaking to reporters at a press conference, Jean-Pierre said that Washington was aware of Moscow's statements that Ukraine allegedly attacked the Kremlin with drones.
"We are aware of those reports, but we cannot confirm their authenticity now. So I don't want to get into speculation about what happened," she said.
The spokeswoman stressed that since the beginning of the war, the United States did not encourage Ukraine to resort to attacks outside its borders.
At the same time, she stressed that Russia "has a history" of conducting operations under a false flag.
US Secretary of State Antony Blinken said in the context of the attack on the Kremlin that he would perceive everything that comes out of the Kremlin "with a very large shaker of salt."

As of now, 21 people have been killed! 48 wounded! All civilians! In one incomplete day! In one oblast! My condolences to the families and friends of the victims.
We will never forgive those responsible. We will defeat the evil country and hold all those involved accountable!" - said President Zelenskiy.
