British intelligence: now the Crimean bridge is an extremely vulnerable structure
Russia spends a lot of energy and money to protect the illegal construction across the Kerch Strait.
The Crimean bridge has become a very vulnerable construction. Although the bridge is operational, its use has been significantly limited since the first Ukrainian strike in October 2022. Yes, the occupiers transport trucks and fuel by ferry.
The Crimean bridge remains a vital link in supporting the Russian occupiers in Crimea and southern Ukraine. However, the bridge is now a significant security burden, requiring multi-component protection. In particular, it refers to the use of air defense systems and aircrews that would otherwise be deployed elsewhere. This was announced by the Ministry of Defense of Great Britain.
Now the ability of the Russians to protect this large and vulnerable structure is under threat – due to the ingenuity of the Ukrainian military and security services.
