Intercepted Russian and Ukrainian communications have led the US to draw the conclusion Kyiv was likely behind the drone attack on the Kremlin earlier in May.
US thinks Ukraine was behind Kremlin drone attack
United States intelligence agencies believe that a drone attack on the Kremlin this month was likely orchestrated by Ukrainian spies or military intelligence, the New York Times says.
The newspaper said the attack appeared to be part of a series of covert operations that have made officials in the United States - Ukraine’s biggest supplier of military equipment - uncomfortable.
The US assessment was based on intercepted Russian and Ukrainian communications, the paper said.
The United States intercepted Ukrainian conversations in which officials said they believed their country was responsible for the attack, and also tapped into Russian communications which indicated it was not some sort of false-flag operation by Russia, it added.
