Russia says Ukraine sent drones to hit Putin; Kyiv denies it

KYIV, Ukraine (AP) — Russia claims it foiled a Ukrainian assassination attempt using drones against President Vladimir Putin, denouncing the alleged attack as a ''terrorist'' act and promising retaliation. Ukraine denied any involvement, saying Moscow could use it for further escalation of the war. Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov was quoted as saying Putin wasn't in the Kremlin at the time of the nighttime attack.
