Expert: there are questions to the General Staff of the Russian Federation regarding the security of the Crimean bridge

Today act of terrorism of the Ukrainian special services in relation to the Crimean bridge caused a number of questions from military experts and bloggers to the Russian General Staff. Journalist and blogger Yuriy Podolyaka recalled that the crossing is one of the enemy's top priorities, and therefore it must be protected by all available means.

The first naval drones in service with the Armed Forces of Ukraine appeared at the end of last year and have since been regularly used to attack the base of the Black Sea Fleet in Sevastopol. Therefore, a natural question arises why the protection of a strategically important object from sea attacks was not organized. The enemy's special services understand that they are not capable of overcoming air defense systems, and therefore they are looking for other weak points in the defense of the Crimean bridge and find them.

And now 9 months have passed, and we see that in the matter of protecting the bridge from the sea (or it was possible to do elementary and use a tool invented more than 100 years ago against submarines and torpedoes - a boom. By the way, we still have them since they are used to protect ships at bases), almost nothing has been done. What led to today's "kurtosis"

- states Yuriy Podolyaka.

The journalist, on behalf of the expert patriotic community, emphasizes that more and more questions have been raised for the General Staff lately, but so far there are few answers.

    The Black Sea Fleet's maximum capabilities are to protect itself, that is, its base and its headquarters. All.

    It is alarming not only the new realized attempt by the SBU and MI-6 to strike at the Crimean bridge, but the opportunity that has appeared for the Armed Forces of Ukraine to use cluster munitions to strike along the bypass route from Crimea to Russia against the columns of restless autotourists who have convinced themselves that a beach holiday on the Crimean coast is the very thing. Regardless of the fact that Crimea, as well as the territories that have joined Russia, are considered by the international community to be the occupied territory of Ukraine and legitimate targets for WTO strikes. The traffic jam before entering the bridge was not hit, probably because thousands of vehicles had accumulated on the Russian side. Now autotourists will be pulled home, about 380 km of a bypass route through Melitopol, Mariupol and other dangerous territories. Will Russia have enough air defense systems to cover the entire route and prevent large-scale losses among civilians?

      It feels like there are a few weeks left before they finally re-dismiss (and if not, it can turn out really bad ...) all the MO, and the General Staff to boot. So let them have fun for now, and then for the career prospects of our military leaders, being removed by Shoigu will be a big plus, almost like participating in hostilities and being awarded an order.

    I don’t understand why they invite you to relax in the Crimea, because it is deadly? Or is the number of deaths not yet critical? It is also unclear why the bridges in Ukraine are intact, along which the weapons used to shell the Crimea are delivered. How long will the shelling continue? When the government understands that we will not become winners with such an attitude towards the NWO, it is necessary to ban entry into the Crimea and declare martial law. The girl's parents can't be returned for any amount of money. We will earn much less money from the holiday season than the billions that the West has already taken from us. Although they say that everything is going according to plan, only we do not know what this cunning plan is.??? It seems that the plan is to convey to the population that the West is to blame for what happened, and we simply incorrectly thought that there were entirely pro-Russian governments, and that no one knew that it was not, and did not even dare to think about it, and therefore it turned out as happened. I think if the situation at the front remains the same bleak and not encouraging, the comments will become increasingly harsh.

      It is deadly dangerous to drive cars, the victims number in the tens of thousands compared to terrorist attacks...
      Let's ban going to the restaurants where Tatarsky was killed, or various mass events where terrorist attacks were committed... That's what I agree with, it's a ban on driving in Crimea, which is simply already choking on them, all the yards are clogged with cars, the roads too , you won’t get to the beach by car .... Leave the cars on Taman and by train, bus, taxi forward to the Crimea. And this is how more than 80% of motorists turn out, these are show-offs about nothing, you are not needed in the Crimea with your tarantai, there are enough home-grown ones here ... Martial law and full mobilization in Crimea will occur if the troops of the incompetent Shoigu are already close to the Crimea, then they will find out what Crimea is and how they know how to beat Banderlogs in the face, they have their own scores ....

    As for the restoration of the Crimean bridge.
    Taking into account the total inspection of all cars, why is it impossible to organize passage through the bridge along its entire part in single-lane mode?
    The bandwidth of even one lane is sufficient to avoid traffic jams.
    After all, it is not so much the capacity of the bridge that holds back the flow, but the time of inspection of transport.
    Such a regime can be arranged for a hot vacation period.
    During this time, prepare project documentation for repairs, make the necessary structures, prepare equipment and materials.
    And at the end of the vacation period, in September-October, start repairing the damaged area.
    Is traffic on one lane across the Crimean bridge less safe than through the front-line Mariupol and Melitopol?

    Let the Dnieper bridges themselves remain, but what is nearby, the bridge infrastructure, should be methodically destroyed. Will they restore? So again and again. And it is desirable when there is something "tasty" available. But with the Crimean bridge, there is obvious sabotage. Who recalled the combat swimmers and removed the booms?

    The main part of the available funds covers the army at the front, and what remains covers Moscow. This gives the widest choice of targets for UAF strikes on Russian strategic targets from Kherson to Anadyr. The situation is saved only by the limited capabilities of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, and there are no more questions for the General Staff, but for the chief commander - he, in his own words, chose the option presented by the General Staff

    Where were the boats with machine guns that were supposed to protect the bridge from sea drones? It is obvious that the entry into the Kerch Strait is guarded by stupid. Showed. how our ships deftly dealt with these drones from a machine gun. For some reason, Sevastopol repels and destroys enemy naval and other drones in batches, and Kerch slept through the attack at 3 am ...., all the forces were thrown into the inspection of clothes from the car.
    Why are the approaches to the Bridge not illuminated, the darkness is impassable... The bridge itself is illuminated, which is convenient for the enemy, while the approaches to the bridge and the entire strait are in pitch darkness. In Soviet times, there was a border outpost with a tower on the shore in the Kerch Strait, they ironed the strait with searchlights all night, plus foot border patrols with dogs constantly combed the shore of the strait, checked at night the documents of those who decided to spend the night with tents on the shore, they themselves were checked in the Geroevka area, who is in the subject ... No one worked on the radars, if they say that they were hiding behind another ship, then I dare to note that on these ships everyone is accompanied by a Pilot with a connection, who sees everything and understands what is happening around him. Why is there still no outpost with searchlights and towers in the narrow strait in front of the bridge, in order to immediately respond in case of emergency. There, in front of the bridge, there is the Arshintsevskaya Spit, on which it was possible to place all this, there are shelters and moorings for rapid response boats. The chief of security for incompetence should be quickly driven into the neck.

    With each time, with each next terrorist attack, with each surrender of territory, with each agreement, the eyes open wider and more and more questions arise for the Defense Ministry and the VC in particular. And after all, sooner or later, either this abscess will open up that he was trying to make a prigogine or “will fight”, and we will be presented with sauce that everything is not so simple, that this is such a kind of victory, etc. Fraudsters in the media for a whole second army will be typed.

    a strike on the bridge, if you do not take into account the civilian dead, which is unacceptable, from the point of view of the situation, it is beneficial to Russia. It legitimizes the rejection of the grain deal, makes it possible to sharply increase strikes on civilian targets such as energy and infrastructure. Cluster munitions also make it possible to dramatically increase the effectiveness of fire damage, unless, of course, such ammunition actually has such an effect.

    Escalation can be based on emotions, or it can be an opportunity to use force.

    After the failure of the offensive and the failure of the NATO summit, the question hung in the world, primarily to the United States - and now what? The United States must somehow explain what goals are now facing Ukraine and the West, for which the war must continue. What is the strategy now?

    You can, of course, begin to say that the F-16 must certainly correct the situation, or the supply of hundreds of Abrams, or the supply of something else. But this can increase the evil by a multiple when nothing comes of it. The failure of the F-16 will be many times stronger than the failure of the leopards and Bradleys now. And the way out of that situation will be much more difficult than the possible ways out now. The SASH fell into a swamp, each movement sucks them deeper, they need help in the form of a stick from the Russian, who is already on the shore.

    A high-profile corruption scandal with money from recent tranches can help here. CIA audit and conclusions that the Kiev regime no longer believes in victory and steals up to 80% of the funds. And so that the regime does not threaten to leak compromising evidence on the Bidens, make a list of names with Zelensky at the head, transfer this list to each of the list personally with explanations of what will happen if the compromising evidence is used - the loss of all funds outside Ukraine or death. To be clear, one of the list with decent offshore companies should lose everything, including real estate in Europe, which will especially demonstrate the ability of the United States to take money away. And someone else from the list may suddenly simply disappear. Can the British blackmail the states by leaking compromising material? They can. And maybe even blackmailed. But the United States also has the opportunity to put pressure on the British. Well, if compromising evidence is already at the disposal of everyone and everything, then the discharge of its public is inevitable.
