Putin vows Retaliation for new Crimean Bridge strike

Russian President Vladimir Putin has vowed retaliation for a new strike on the Crimean Bridge, targeted by two Ukrainian naval drones overnight. Exact retaliatory measures are currently being weighed by the country’s Defense Ministry, he said during an extraordinary meeting with senior officials on Monday.

“The incident is a yet another terrorist attack by the Kiev regime. This crime is pointless from the military point of view, since the Crimean Bridge has long not been used for military transport, and brutal, since only innocent civilians were killed and injured,” the president stressed.

Putin said Moscow would retaliate harshly for the attackPutin said Moscow would retaliate harshly for the attack, as happened for the first one on October 2022. The Russian Defense Ministry is already preparing “necessary proposals” for such measures, he added.

Moscow accused Kiev but also American and British Special Services

The deadly blasts that damaged the infrastructure were caused by two Ukrainian naval drones.

Russia’s National Antiterrorist Committee (NAK) said the Crimean Bridge had been targeted by a Ukrainian “terrorist attack.”It stated the attack had involved two Ukrainian unmanned maritime surface drones and had taken place at around 3am local time.

Several Ukrainian media outlets also reported that the bridge had been attacked by sea drones, describing the raid as a “special operation” conducted by the country’s security services and naval forces.

The British REMUS 600 autonomous robot submarine

According to some Ukrainian media, the attack on the Kerch Strait bridge was carried out using the British REMUS 600 autonomous robot submarine with an additional load of explosives.

Due to its ability to move underwater to a depth of 600 meters and easy control from a laptop, it was launched from a civilian ship in the Black Sea, has a flight duration of about 70 hours at speeds up to 5 knots. With increased cargo capacity, it has a range of 286 nautical miles, nearly 500km.

«Explosions and an “extraordinary event” have occurred on the Kerch Bridge and at the Russian Black Sea Fleet’s naval base in Sevastopol, including the possible use of Ukraine’s unique naval drones» Kiev Post wrote.

While Ukrainian officials have stopped short of claiming responsibility, they welcomed the incident. Writing on Twitter, Mikhail Podoliak, a senior adviser to Ukrainian President Vladimir Zelensky, said that “any illegal structures” used by Russia to supply its troops are “necessarily short-lived… regardless of the reasons for the destruction.”

Andrey Yusov, a spokesman for Ukraine’s Main Directorate of Intelligence (GUR), claimed the Crimean Bridge is a “redundant construction.”

Ukrainian officials cheering the deadly terrorist attack against the Crimean bridge demonstrate “cynical and monstrous” behavior, the Russian Foreign Ministry has said. The Monday morning blasts killed two Russian civilians traveling via the strategic transport link and left their 14-year-old daughter an orphan.

“They said in Kiev that the incident was the result of a joint operation of its Navy and the Security Service of Ukraine (SBU). It confirms that the nation’s political leadership and special services are linked to this terrorist act,” the ministry said.

“This regime [the Ukrainian government] is terrorist and has all the hallmarks of an international organized crime group,” the Russia Foreign Affairs ministry said on social media, sharing a post by its spokeswoman, Maria Zakharova.

“Ukrainian officials and military personnel take those decisions with direct input from American and British special services and politicians. The US and Britain are managing a state-like terrorist structure,” the statement added.

These are the same suspicions also advanced by the Western media after the serious explosion on the bridge in the last October for which Kiev politicians recently claimed responsibility in the terrorist attack.
