The Ukrainian soldiers reportedly opened fire and engaged in a shootout against the Russian border patrol before advancing into the Russian village of Krasny Khutor.

As RadarOnline.com previously reported, Friday’s alleged incident marked the third time in a matter of weeks that Ukraine was accused of storming Russia amid the ongoing conflict between the two nations.

Russia accused Ukraine of trying to assassinate Putin after a “kamikaze” drone crashed just outside Moscow in late April.

Then, earlier this month, Ukraine was again accused of attempting to assassinate Putin after another drone strike targeted the Kremlin at approximately 2 AM on May 3.

Although Ukraine denied being behind the suspected drone strike, Kremlin officials claimed the attack was a “planned terrorist attack” and an “assassination attempt on the president of Russia.”
