Russia actively strengthens defense of Crimean bridge - OC South
Operational Command South's press center head Natalia Humeniuk says that Russia is actively trying to protect the Crimean bridge from air and sea attacks
She said this on the Espreso TV channel.
"The Crimean bridge is a structure that has a special destiny. It is obvious that its existence is shrinking every day. The occupiers are actively trying to hide this bridge with smoke during air threats. Such actions are part of their air defense. In addition, they continue to set up booms. In this way, they are trying to reduce the risks to this structure," said Humeniuk.
According to Humeniuk, the Ukrainian Defense Forces continue combat work to find effective ways to influence the Russians in Crimea.
"The invaders clearly understand that the Crimean bridge is threatened not only from the air but also from the sea. Moreover, the probability of damage is no less than from the air. As the bridge has been repeatedly attacked from the sea. On our part, we continue our combat work and select the most effective ways to influence the situation," she added.
- On the evening of January 4, explosions occurred in the Russian city of Belgorod and the temporarily occupied Crimea. The authorities reported an attack by missiles and drones and allegedly successful air defense.
- Later, it was reported that the Ukrainian military had attacked a Russian ammunition depot in Crimea.
