what is actually going on with the apparent drone attack on Putin?
A third option is that opposition elements within Russia launched the attack to send a signal to Putin that his time is running out. Over a year into its “special military operation” against Ukraine, Russia is an international pariah state, bleeding men and equipment at levels not seen since World War II, and getting little in return.
… Ukrainian parliamentary leader David Arakhamia speculated that the attack was conducted by Russian oligarchs who have lost a collective $95 billion from war sanctions, and want things to go back to normal. Those insiders would have the means, motive and opportunity to launch a drone strike.
