US Secretary of State Antony Blinken says he is highly skeptical of any allegations made by Russia, after Moscow claimed Kyiv had launched a drone attack on the Kremlin.

“I’ve seen the reports. I cannot validate them, we simply don’t know,” Blinken says at an event in Washington.

“I would take anything coming out of the Kremlin with a very large shaker of salt.”
