Igor Korotchenko, member of the Public Council of the Russian Ministry of Defence, said that time has come to target and destroy bridges over Dnipro (Ukraine), after the Ukrainian Armed Forces destroyed the Russian ammunition depot in the Russian-occupied city of Nova Kakhovka.

Quote from Korotchenko: “It’s time to strike the bridges, to destroy the bridges over the Dnipro.”
Details: Korotchenko said that Russia “should not be embarrassed” to avenge “each Ukrainian strike” on Kherson and Nova Kakhovka (which he claimed were “Russian” cities) by “destroying one of the bridges over the Dnipro.”
He added that bridges – as well as energy and fuel systems – are legitimate military targets.
Korotchenko also said that Russia has to make it physically impossible for Western officials to visit Kyiv and to instil fear in such officials of making any such visits.
Background: A few days earlier, the Armed Forces of Ukraine destroyed a Russian ammunition depot in Nova Kakhovka.
