Just saw the video of the so-called attack on the Kremlin. Not only is it fake; it’s a very poor fake. I can’t imagine anyone risking life and limb to fire something slightly greater than a Roman candle.
Moreover, it seemed to be just about dead center in the video. Now isn’t that convenient.
The only time you can believe Putin or his cronies is during their silence. Even then, I’d be suspicious.
My suspension is that the falsehood is likely an indication of Putin’s frustration.
