There were explosions in Genichesk, also reported coming over the Chongar bridge. Video
On the afternoon of August 6, a "bavovna" was reported in southern Ukraine. Explosions were heard in the area of temporarily occupied Genichesk.
Also the occupants announced a strike on the Chongar bridge. According to collaborant Vladimir Rogov, "three or four arrivals" were recorded there, the amount of damage is still unknown.
"Arrivals on the Chongar bridge. The Nazis have launched missile strikes. A total of three or four arrivals are reported. The amount of damage is still unknown," the traitor wrote at 15:19.
The strike on the Chongar bridge was confirmed by the occupation "head of the Crimean government" Sergei Aksyonov.
"One hit, some of the missiles were shot down by air defense forces. There is damage to the roadbed of the highway bridge, repair work is already beginning. There are no casualties. Temporarily the passage is carried out through the checkpoints Armyansk and Krasnoperekopsk", - said the Gauleiter.
Saldo also published photos allegedly taken after the arrival.
But Russian propagandists added "colors" and published the damages that Saldo "forgot" about.
Russian propagandists published a video of the moment of arrival over the Chongar Bridge.
Also in social networks report about explosions in the area of Genichesk: there damaged the bridge to the Arabat Spit, as well as a gas pipeline.
A photo of the damage caused by the "bavonna" on the bridge also appeared online.
"The photo shows the first bridge to Arabat - it is very tired. Earlier on July 31 they closed access to Arabat to civilians and moved a lot of different stuff there. Now this miscellaneous stuff has risks to stay there and wait for the next arrival from "destroyed airplanes". This happens when you p**t a lot and think that nothing will happen to you for it," blogger "Nikolaevsky Vanek" wrote .
The gauleiter of the occupied part of Kherson, Vladimir Saldo, confirmed the damage to the bridge to the Arabat Spit and the hitting of the gas pipeline. However, assured that the damage is "small" and traditionally "shot down" almost all missiles.
"Today armed formations of the criminal Kyiv regime shelled the bridge across the Genichesk Strait, connecting the city of Genichesk with the Arabatskaya strelka. In total, Kyiv terrorists fired 12 missiles, 9 were shot down by our air defense. One civilian who was passing over the bridge at the time of the arrival was wounded. Also the gas pipeline from Strelkovskoye field to Genichesk, which was passing near the bridge, was broken. More than 20 thousand residents of the city were left without gas supply ... Information about the damage to the bridge and gas pipeline is being clarified. According to preliminary data, they are small and will be eliminated quickly", - issued Saldo.
He also said that the damaged bridge has "no important military significance" for the occupants, who will sooner or later be forced to flee the Ukrainian Kherson region.
The explosions are being actively discussed in local chat rooms. People write that they were very strong.
Recall that on June 22, 2023, the main road Chongar bridge was damaged. The strikes were carried out by air-to-ground missiles Storm Shadow. Next to the railroad bridge is an old road bridge, which has long been in a state of disrepair. According to some information, it was also hit. But Russian propagandists, who posted photos and videos of the aftermath of the strikes, recorded the destruction in close-up only on the new bridge.
On July 29, 2023, a second strike was made, but already on the railway bridge, located at a distance of about 8 kilometers from the road bridges. Subsequent satellite images confirmed that the Chongar railroad bridge was severely damaged after the strike.
