Humeniuk explained why the occupiers "hype" the situation with the Crimean bridge
The occupants complained about another alleged night attack on the Crimean Bridge. At the same time, the speaker of the Joint Press Center of the Defense Forces of the South of Ukraine Nataliya Humeniuk said that the invaders deliberately "hype" the situation with the Crimean Bridge.
She said this on air of the Yedyni Novyny TV marathon. The invaders continue to maintain tension around the Kerch Bridge in Crimea because the Kremlin needs to justify the fact that this object is not fully utilized.
Therefore, on September 2, the occupiers announced another drone attack on the bridge. At the same time, the speaker noted that the accusations of the Russians are unfounded as their actions contradict their statements. After all, Russia earlier claimed to have created powerful defensive structures around the Crimean Bridge in the form of ferries connected by nets, which were used to prevent drones from penetrating the bridge.
"The fact that they try to hype up the situation around this structure every time is exactly their tactic. They need to justify why people can't use the infrastructure," the spokeswoman said.
According to Humeniuk, the occupants were supposed to transfer reserves and resupply ammunition through this bridge, but the receipts were much less than the invaders wanted. Therefore, they take various measures to justify it, such as announcing training, limiting traffic on the bridge and flooding ferries near it.
As reported by OBOZREVATEL, Russia complained about the night attack on the Crimean bridge on September 2. According to the version of the Ministry of Defense of the aggressor state, the occupants destroyed three marine drones in the waters of the Black Sea at night.
Lieutenant General Ihor Romanenko explained what the destruction of the Crimean Bridge would mean for Putin. He noted that the destruction of the bridge should not be confused with the conquest of the Crimean peninsula. The Kerch Bridge is important as a means of pressure.
