Robert F. Kennedy Jr. took to Twitter to express his disgust and frustration at Ukraine’s recent drone attack on the Kremlin, calling it a “dangerous” and “deranged” attempt to escalate the war, which could potentially lead to a nuclear catastrophe. He also reminded his followers of his uncle President John F. Kennedy’s wise counsel during the Cuban Missile Crisis and urged that we learn from history and avoid any actions that could lead to similar crises.

Russia claims that the US was the mastermind behind the attack, leaving Ukraine as the country that was merely executing Washington’s plans. However, despite the alleged attack, Russian President Vladimir Putin was carrying out his duties in his office as usual on Thursday.
After successfully defusing the Cuban Missile Crisis, President John Kennedy warned against ever again forcing Russia to choose between national humiliation and nuclear war. We should heed his advice. #Kennedy24

This is a clear indication that Ukraine is responsible for the increase in the escalation between the two nations, and it is not going unnoticed. Dmitry Medvedev, a former Russian president under Putin and now Kremlin Security Council Deputy Chairman, openly called for the physical elimination of Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky and his clique following the attack. This is a blatant violation of the sovereignty of a nation and a dangerous threat that should not be taken lightly.
Russia has expressed its discontent with Ukraine over drone attacks on oil facilities and train derailments in recent weeks, blaming them for the incidents. This addition to the growing aggression indicates that Russia is prepared to take retaliatory measures against Ukraine to protect its own interests.
US Secretary of State Antony Blinken expressed skepticism about Russia’s allegations, but given their past actions, the intentions of Russia seem clear. Ukraine has stated they are fighting on their own territory in a defensive war and not attacking targets on the territory of the Russian Federation. This statement emphasizes that Ukraine only wants protection within its borders and is not out to cause conflict.
As the situation between Russia and Ukraine escalates, it is imperative that we do not ignore or justify the actions taken by Ukraine, which is a hostile and dangerous nation. The international community must hold Ukraine accountable for the drone attack on the Kremlin and send a strong message that such violent and aggressive actions will not be tolerated.
