Deputy of the Kherson Regional Council Serhiy Khlan said that the successful strikes of the Armed Forces of Ukraine on bridges in the region made it impossible to supply heavy equipment to occupied Kherson .

Khlan told about it on air of 24 channel .

The deputy noted that traffic for trucks is now closed along the Antonovsky bridge, the occupiers are looking for specialists to repair the crossing in Crimea.

Therefore, the deputy clarifies, the Russians began to transport weapons and manpower to Kherson through the area of ​​the Kakhovskaya hydroelectric power station. There are three bridges along that path, one of which – Darevsky – today became the object of a pinpoint strike by the Armed Forces of Ukraine .

“Absolutely” surgically “, as well as according to Antonovsky, it was stitched with shells so that it was impossible to pass heavy equipment,” Khlan added.

According to him, the Russians were transferring weapons across this bridge during the day, so the Armed Forces of Ukraine will probably “finish in such a way as to block these deliveries.

“Now the city of Kherson is cut off from the supply of heavy weapons, heavy armored vehicles, and this gives advantages to our Armed Forces in counter-offensive actions that take place absolutely along the entire front line,” says Khlan.

He also said that residents of the occupied part of the region see how the occupiers are “burning” and panicking because of the successes of the Armed Forces of Ukraine.

“Tactical advantages have begun that bring our victory closer to the liberation of our native land,” the deputy of the regional council summed up.

Recall that on July 23,  the Armed Forces of Ukraine “with surgical precision” hit the Darevsky bridge across the Ingulets  in the Kherson region.

Earlier, on July 19, the Ukrainian military  hit the Antonovsky bridge  in occupied Kherson, which connects the city with the left bank of the Dnieper.

British intelligence calls  the  Antonovsky bridge the main vulnerability of the Russian army in the Kherson region . That is why control over the crossings across the Dnieper can become a key factor in the fighting in the Kherson region.

  1. “Absolutely” surgically “, as well as according to Antonovsky, it was stitched with shells so that it was impossible to pass heavy equipment,”

    Correct! This strike is a textbook-like strike. It couldn’t have been better …. not from the distance it was conducted from. The precision is comparable to a good airstrike.
    I know that whatever weapons were used, they’re not ideal to destroy a tough bridge, and bridges can be very tough. But, seeing the damage in those images makes it obvious that more could be done. I’m convinced that the UA forces could finish the job with one or two more such strikes. A high enough concentration of such holes in the concrete decking will make the bridge impassable and might even make it drop a section into the river.
    Ukrainian forces might wait to decide at a later time to do that. After all, they will need it too when they’ve driven the cockroaches out of the area. If the cockroach supply situation remains low enough to allow UA forces to advance, they will not destroy it. If the cockroaches are getting enough supplies, making life tough for UA troops, the bridge will become history.

  2. The main thing is the bridges be useless for rashists heavy equipment or otherwise. But yes even though shells being used are not optimal, they can still turn a bridge into swiss cheese and enough holes together would take it out. And yes if AFU want to advance further, wise to leave it somewhat intact for Ukrainian engineering teams to piece it back together. No substitute for total victory. Death to the rashist occupiers.
