White House: Kremlin telling 'lies' about drone attack

STORY: John Kirby, the White House national security spokesperson, said there still was no conclusive evidence as to the authenticity of a video showing the alleged drone attack.

Russia said on Thursday that the United States was behind what it says was a drone attack on the Kremlin that aimed to kill President Vladimir Putin.

Putin's spokesman Dmitry Peskov, without providing evidence, said Ukraine had acted on U.S. orders with the alleged drone attack on the Kremlin citadel in the early hours of Wednesday.

White House national security spokesman John Kirby said Peskov was "just lying" and said the United States neither encouraged nor enabled Ukraine to strike outside its borders.
