Storm ruins barriers against marine drones near Crimea bridge
The bridge across the Kerch Strait was left without boom barriers
The boom barriers that Russia placed to protect the Crimean bridge were destroyed by a powerful storm that raged on November 26-27, Defense Express reports.
This is evidenced by satellite images published by the well-known OSINT analyst MT Anderson, who noted that three barges on which the barriers were mounted were completely flooded, another partially, two were washed away by the waves and one was afloat but not fixed.
As a reminder, these barriers were placed at the end of August this year after the 'kamikaze' drones carried out another successful attack on July 17. They were supposed to create a solid barrier. But it failed the weather test.
At the same time, Ukraine needs to understand that Russian enemy will make every effort to restore them, but in any case, this will take time, which opens up a certain window of opportunity.
- It was earlier reported that Sevastopol Bay was left without similar protection due to the storm.
