President Zelensky on drone attacks on the Kremlin: We didn’t attack Putin or Moscow

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky has denied Ukraine’s attack on the Kremlin residence of the Russian president and Putin himself, adding that the Ukrainian side will leave it to tribunal.

The relevant statement was made by Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky during a joint press conference with the Presidents and participants in the Nordic-Ukrainian Summit in Finland’s Helsinki, an Ukrinform correspondent reports.

“We do not attack Putin or Moscow. We fight on our territory, we are defending our villages and cities. We didn't attack Putin. We leave it to tribunal,” the President of Ukraine said.

According to Zelensky, Ukraine does not have enough weapons to use them ‘anywhere’.

When asked why Russia resorts to such accusations and methods, Zelensky assumed that Putin no longer has anything else to motivate his society to send Russian citizens to their deaths.

“Everything is very simple. There are no victories in Russia. He [Putin - Ed.] can no longer motivate his society and cannot simply send his military to their deaths. He has no victories, the world’s second army has lost on the battlefield... They were repelled by us. Now he needs at least somehow to motivate people to move forward,” Zelensky noted.

In his words, Russia has lost this war as the state, and now Putin has to resort to various manipulations and invent some drone attacks and assassination attempts.

The President of Ukraine emphasized that everything could have been solved in a much easier way: Russia should simply withdraw its troops from Ukraine.
