  1. Head of the office of the President of Ukraine Andriy Yermak commented on reports of smoke in the area of ​​the Crimean bridge by posting the Beatles song “Yellow Submarine” on his telegram channel. Perhaps this is a hint that the bridge was attacked by sea drones.

  2. Updated (14:25): The Russian Ministry of Defense commented on the attack , stating that allegedly “an attempt was made to deliver a terrorist strike on the Crimean Bridge with an S-200 anti-aircraft guided missile converted into a strike version.”

    The agency of the aggressor country claims that the missile was “timely detected and intercepted in the air.” Military experts note that this Soviet missile has a maximum range of 255 km, which is less than the distance to the nearest point of the front line (about 270 km).

    The channel about the operational situation on the bridge said that the movement of vehicles on the Crimean bridge was restored.
