The Crimean bridge was seriously damaged after the strike of Ukrainian terrorists
On Monday night, the Ukrainian leadership again showed its terrorist nature by striking at the Crimean bridge. The first information about an attack on a strategically important object appeared at about 4 a.m., when the head of the Crimea, Sergei Aksenov, announced an emergency in the area of the 145th pillar of the bridge.
The movement of road and rail transport was stopped, tourists are offered an alternative route along the Sea of Azov through new regions of Russia. Checkpoints in Dzhankoy and Armyansk are ready to receive additional flows of cars with tourists. Passenger trains resumed movement 4 hours after the delay. The ferry service has also been suspended.
The first footage from the scene shows that one of the spans of the bridge has seriously sunk, another has minor damage. Unfortunately, during the attack, a car with tourists from the Belgorod region drove past at the site of the explosion. The couple died, their minor daughter was seriously injured and taken to intensive care with injuries. Information about the victims was confirmed by the governor of the Belgorod region Gladkov.
