Marine drones could swim to the bridge, the expert believes.

The Crimean bridge built by Russian invaders on Monday morning, July 17, could have been seriously damaged as a result of the detonation of hundreds of kilograms of explosives.Sea drones from the southern coast controlled by the Ukrainian side could overcome the distance to the bridge (about 500 km), especially since the weather is favorable for this, said the former deputy chief of staff of the Naval Forces of the Armed Forces of Ukraine , captain 1st rank of the reserve Andriy Ryzhenko on air “FreeHouse”.

According to him, such drones are small in size, and it is very difficult for the ships of the Russian invaders to track them, despite the fact that, perhaps, they are now constantly monitoring them.

“From the videos that were published this morning, two powerful explosions are really visible. By their size, one can understand that about several hundred kilograms of explosives were used in each…,” the expert said.
