ARLINGTON, The United States of America – The Pentagon has categorically denied being involved in the January 6 attack on the Russian military bases of Khmeimim and Tartus where 13 homemade drones attempted to make damage. 

Moscow revealed that the drones used were not amateur. Full details can be read here.

However, with no-one owning up to the attack and Russian President Vladimir Putin announcing Turkey were not responsible, the US were quick to also distant themselves from the attack.

“The United States was not involved in any way with the drone attack on the Russian base at any time” Marine Corps Lt. Gen. Kenneth F. McKenzie Jr said at Pentagon press briefing in Arlington on Thursday.
