The Russian army in Kherson decided to lay an “alternative” route for the crossing of personnel and equipment to the Antonovsky bridge .

The occupiers laid a pontoon crossing near the Antonovsky bridge, as evidenced by footage taken by eyewitnesses.

In addition to the conveyor, towing boats are also involved. It looks quite banal: 4 tugboats pull pontoons with cars from one side to the other.play video

It is reported that the Russians attach military equipment to civilian vehicles, thus using civilians as human shields.

Attacks on bridges in the Kherson region

On July 19 and 27, the Armed Forces of Ukraine carried out a series of attacks on the Antonovsky bridge, which connects the shores of Russian-occupied Kherson. Due to the damage caused, it is impossible to move on it .  

On July 24, the only bridge across the Ingulets in the Kherson region  was attacked by the Armed Forces of Ukraine.

Lieutenant General Igor Romanenko confirmed that the situation with the Antonovsky bridge in Kherson was taken under the fire control of the Armed Forces of Ukraine . 

According to expert Ivan Kirichevsky, in order to leave the cut-off coast of the city, the Russian invaders will have to leave all their heavy equipment here . 

As noted in British intelligence, the Armed Forces of Ukraine have created a foothold south of the Ingulets River, which forms the northern border of Russian-occupied Kherson. The supply of the Russian army on the right bank of the Kherson region was carried out through the Dnieper.

  1. A pontoon bridge is a desperate measure and it can’t ever replace a proper bridge, even if it can carry a tank.
    Besides that, a single missile can send a good part of it to the fishes.
    Let’s all have a round of raucous laughter!
