Kiev regime and its western allies celebrate terrorist attack on Crimean Bridge that kills three
A terror attack on the Crimean Bridge linking the Crimean peninsula with mainland Russia has drawn impish glees from the Kiev regime and its western allies, Saturday.
Ukrainian presidential advisor posted a message on Twitter after conflicting reports of an explosion on Saturday that damaged the bridge connecting the Russian mainland to the peninsula of Crimea, calling it “the beginning”.
“Everything illegal must be destroyed, everything stolen must be returned to Ukraine, everything occupied by Russia must be expelled,” Mykhailo Podolyak wrote.
Western media praised Ukrainian special forces for the attack some calling it a blow to Russian military logistics and a birthday present to President Vladimir Putin who celebrated his 70th birthday on Friday.
A truck exploded on the Crimean Bridge killing three people, the Russian Investigative Committee said in a statement on Saturday.
“According to preliminary information, the incident killed three people, presumably the passengers of a car that was driving by the truck that exploded on the bridge. The bodies of a woman and a man were recovered from the water, their identities are being established,” the statement reads.
The explosion caused several fuel tanks of a railway train to catch fire. Two spans of the road bridge collapsed but a lane leading from Crimea to the Krasnodar Region reportedly remained intact. Traffic on the road and railway parts of the bridge was suspended and has since resumed.
The Russian Investigative Committee now consider the blast as a terrorist attack. Ukraine has previously stated that the bridge was a legitimate target.
Investigators have identified the owner of a truck that exploded on the Crimean Bridge on Saturday morning, the Russian Investigative Committee said in a statement.
“The Investigative Committee’s investigators identified the owner of the truck as a resident of the Krasnodar Region. Investigative activities are being carried out at his place of residence,” the statement read.
Russian Foreign Ministry said the accolades following the attack on the bridge highlights the terrorist nature of the Kiev regime and its western allies.
“The Kiev regime’s reaction the destruction of civilian infrastructure highlights its terrorist nature,” Russian Foreign Ministry Spokeswoman Maria Zakharova wrote on Telegram on Saturday.
The Russian government has formed a commission to look into the incident.
