The first footage of the destroyed Antonovsky bridge appeared

The first footage of the destroyed Antonovsky bridge appeared on the Web. The photo and video confirm the destruction of the crossing across the Dnieper by Russian troops. At least two spans from the left bank collapsed into the water.

This means that there are no Russian troops on the right bank in Kherson. Maneuver for the transfer of 20 thousand personnel and 3,5 thousand combat units equipment completed in less than two days. The order to withdraw to the left bank of the Dnieper was given by the commander of the NVO troops, General of the Army Surovikin, on November 9 after a meeting with the participation of Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu.

This maneuver is designed to preserve the grouping in the Kherson direction and provide reliable defense with minimal human losses. The destruction of the bridges across the Dnieper will not allow the Armed Forces of Ukraine to attack our positions near Kherson. Forcing the river under fire from Russian troops would be an absolutely pointless undertaking.

A well-organized defense along the left bank of the Dnieper will make it possible to free up a certain amount of forces and means for active operations in other directions in the NVO zone, which was emphasized by Surovikin during the difficult decision to withdraw from Kherson.

    Words about a well-organized defense from the lips of only that mediocre (without a fight) of the losing general sound ridiculous. River width The Dnieper allows the impact of fire even from regimental mortars. All supply routes for Russian troops are again under attack. In order to "save the lives and health of servicemen," they will have to move away from the coast to the depth of the impact of the artillery of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, which is tens of kilometers. Given the inefficiency of Russian artillery and the incapacity of aviation, without fire impact, the Ukrainians will quickly restore the bridge. We'll have to retreat even further - to the Crimea. What happens next is anyone's guess. Just look at Shoigu, Gerasimov, etc. They are not capable of anything.

      it is already impossible to look at Shoigu and Gerasimov without laughing. From a haunted look, it is clear that they are in complete prostration and are constantly with full pants. I am ashamed of our generals and our General Staff. it turned out that these were not military men, but a herd of rams incapable of anything

    Putin accustoms us to the routine of such "digressions". I think it's intentional. The obvious goal is the surrender of the country.
    This can be seen not in his words, but in the results of his "work":
    - lack of investment in production for 20 years, its degradation and replacement by dependence on the West
    - storage of funds necessary for development in the West in the form of reserves
    - the collapse of science, education and medicine
    - withdrawal of huge sums of money into private property and their transfer to the West
    - creation of a state corrupt system of kickbacks
    - retreat in favor of NATO from all previous geopolitical positions
    - loss of most geopolitical allies
    - transfer to the enemy of most of the foreign exchange reserves placed with him
    - sending him payments on the public debt, fulfilling all contracts and deliveries to the Anglo-Saxons against the backdrop of devastating sanctions against us
    - the reduction of the army and its officer corps, the rejection of its traditional structure, on which the previously accumulated array of operational and strategic plans was based, all its experience and victories
    - climbing into a trap in Ukraine and successfully surrendering our positions in it
    - creating a hot spot in Ukraine by annexing Crimea and mothballing it for several years instead of promptly eliminating the created problem
    - the opportunity to enter into a deadly war for us with NATO in Ukraine, which will happen as a result of any sabotage at nuclear power plants
    etc. etc.

    If Russian generals are praised in the West, it means either treason or.
    That's why the bridges across the Dnieper in Dnepropetrovsk and Zaporozhye were not blown up???
    Armaments, equipment, ammunition go through them every day. mercenaries under the same Artyomovsk.
    Russian guys are dying there.
    That is, in Kherson they blew up the bridge, which the Armed Forces of Ukraine do not need, but they cannot.
    During the Great Patriotic War, aviation could bomb bridges, but now it can't.
    Zelensky should praise Russian generals.
    Tomorrow he will again begin to release something, like Kherson.

    There is simply nowhere else to retreat, no more - not a step back, otherwise the price of this entire NWO with its ultimate goals, which have not yet been achieved even by 1/10, is worthless.
