“We have this data. The data that was received by our special service,” Peskov said.
MOSCOW/WASHINGTON, May 4 (Xinhua) — Russia has evidence showing that the United States and Ukraine were behind the recent drone attack on the Kremlin, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said Thursday.
“We have this data. The data that was received by our special service,” Peskov said about an attempted drone attack Wednesday on the Kremlin.
Peskov noted that the United States must understand that Russia is aware of its participation in the terrorist attack, saying that it’s important for Washington to “understand how dangerous such direct participation in the conflict really is.”
Russia’s presidential press service said Wednesday that Ukraine attempted to assassinate Russian President Vladimir Putin by using two drones to attack his Kremlin residence.
The Kremlin said the military and special services used radar warfare to put the unmanned aerial vehicles out of action.
Meanwhile, U.S. National Security Council spokesman John Kirby said Thursday that Russia’s claims are false. He told local media that “there was no involvement by the United States” in the attack.

U.S. must stop using cyber weapons to carry out espionage around the world: ministry
(ECNS) — According to the report “‘Empire of Hacking’: The U.S. Central Intelligence Agency” that was released on Thursday, over the years, the U.S. CIA has gathered intelligence information from foreign governments, enterprises and citizens, organized, carried out, directed and supervised trans-boundary covert actions, and secretly conducted “Peaceful Evolution” and “Colour Revolution” around the world, Chinese Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Mao Ning said at the daily news briefing.
The report was jointly issued by the National Computer Virus Emergency Response Centre of China and 360 Total Security.
The CIA has provided encrypted network communication services, reconnect service of the network, and on-site command communication tools for demonstrations to conflicting parties, developed relevant software and the “Anti-censorship system”, and carried out espionage activities, the spokeswoman cited the report as saying.
She stressed that the international community need to stay on high alert against these moves. The large number of real cases in China and other countries disclosed by the report once again testifies to CIA’s cyber attack activities around the world over the years, she said.
“The U.S. must take seriously and respond to the concerns from the international community, and stop using cyber weapons to carry out espionage and cyber attacks around the world,” she added.
