THE HAGUE, Netherlands (AP) — Ukraine and Russia are pressing their wartime rhetoric. Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy expressed confidence Thursday that Vladimir Putin will be convicted of war crimes, while the Kremlin alleged the U.S. was behind what it called an assassination attempt against the Russian president. The country’s leaders have personally attacked each other multiple times during the war Russia started by invading Ukraine in February 2022. The latest flareup came Wednesday, with Russia’s claim that Ukraine had attacked the Kremlin in Moscow with drones meant to assassinate Putin. Zelenskyy denied that Ukrainian forces were responsible for the purported drone attack. A U.S. National Security Council spokesman has described the Russian claim of US involvement as “ludicrous.”
