"The absolutely unnecessary structure": Defence Intelligence of Ukraine intrigued by footage of the Crimean Bridge
The Defence Intelligence of Ukraine is intrigued by the footage of the Crimean bridge that connects the occupied peninsula with the aggressor country. Ukrainian reconnaissance men from the Artan Special Forces sent a "greeting" to the occupiers, leaving a "business card" on the shore opposite the illegal structure, and promised the bridge to continue its "adventures."
A corresponding publication appeared on November 22 on the official pages of the Defence Intelligence of Ukraine. The agency's press service reminded that the "sacred" construction of Russian President Vladimir Putin is "completely unnecessary."
"Crimean autumn wind and a completely superfluous construction. To be continued..." the post reads.
Judging by the video published by the GUR, the footage was taken from the shore of the occupied Crimea, and the illegally built Kerch Bridge is visible on the horizon.
It can also be seen that a "business card" with the name of the Artan special unit was left on the coast - in this way, Ukrainian intelligence officers apparently sent a "hello" to the occupiers.
As reported by OBOZ.UA:
- On November 1, thick smoke rose over the Crimean bridge, traffic on it was blocked, the occupiers announced an air alert on the peninsula, and then reported on the "work of air defense."
- British military intelligence stated that the Crimean bridge has become a "security burden" for Russia, as it requires multi-component protection. Putin's "sacred" structure remains under threat due to the ingenuity of the Ukrainian military and the SBU, the agency noted.
- On October 8, 2022, the first explosion occurred on the Kerch Bridge, which collapsed two half-sections of the roadway and damaged the railroad track. On July 17, 2023, a second powerful explosion occurred on the bridge, creating several large dips.
- Earlier, the head of the Defense Intelligence of Ukraine, Kyrylo Budanov, promised to bring the Kerch Bridge case to an end. "It's only a matter of time," he said.
