This is just the latest development in the ongoing war between Russia and Ukraine, and it could indicate a higher level of escalation on a global scale. 

Russia is calling the atempt on Putin's life a terrorist attack, and they said that the drones were downed with no victims or damage to the Kremlin. The date of the attack could be significant, as it came on the eve of Victory Day, the day commemorating the Nazi surrender in World War II. 

Why should we care about an attempt on Putin's life? The Kremlin said following the attack, “the Russian side reserves the right to take retaliatory measures when it sees fit.” That means that the Kremlin will take this as an opportunity to escalate a war with Ukraine, which could easily lead to the outbreak of a third world war.
