The illegal Crimean Bridge, which connects the occupied Ukrainian peninsula with the Russian Federation, will sooner or later come under attack by the Ukrainian Defense Forces. However, we need to be well prepared for this attack: the volley must be massive, because not one or two sections of the crossing must be destroyed at once, but more.

This was stated by military expert, reserve colonel of the Armed Forces of Ukraine Petro Chernyk in the Oboz.Talk program. If several dozen missiles are used now, several sections of the Crimean Bridge will go under water, but in this case, the enemy will still be able to repair it and resume the work of the crossing.

"First of all, the volley must be massive, several dozen ballistic missiles, namely MGM-140 ATACMS ballistic missiles with a range of 300 kilometers. We remember that there are 240 kilometers from Kerch to Gulyaypol. That is, everything is within operational distances, and everything fits. There must be a cruise missile, and there must be a large massive drone strike. That is, it all has to be in a mixed cycle," the expert said.

He explained that if the bridge is attacked with only one type of weapon, the enemy will understand how it will happen and will try to counteract it. The Russians have electronic warfare, and anti-aircraft missile systems, and are now pulling up their newest S-500 ("Triumfator-M" or "Prometheus"), which allegedly has a range of 600 kilometers.

"So, the bridge has to fall, really fall, several hundred meters have to be knocked down. And now the most important point: we must have enough missiles in reserve to prevent them from repairing it so that any barges that come to work for repairs are also sunk. Only then will there be a result, because to spend expensive missiles Storm Shadow – about a million dollars, ATACMS – about a million and a half dollars, for one salvo and make a few holes in the canvas, and they will repair it?" said Chernyk.

He expressed hope that the aid packages that Ukraine will receive from Britain, the United States, and France will include a stockpile of missiles that will allow us to realize this plan and hit the cherished target, which is the Crimean Bridge.

''Not just one or two sections'': military expert says what Ukraine's strike on the Crimean bridge should be like

As reported by OBOZ.UA, The Sun writes that Ukraine plans to destroy the Kerch Bridge in the temporarily occupied Crimea by mid-July. The simultaneous shelling of the structure with Storm Shadow missiles, naval drones, and F-16s could finally destroy the only land bridge from Russia to Crimea.

The Main Intelligence Directorate of the Ministry of Defense of Ukraine and the Security Service of Ukraine noted that the Russian occupiers are facing a "hot holiday season" in the temporarily occupied Crimea. The Ukrainian Defense Forces are doing everything possible to return the peninsula.
