The Lerch Bridge which connects Crimea to the Russian Federation was illegally built by Russians and the use of the bridge remains restricted.
The Kerch bridge has been subject Ukrainian and partisan attacks and has been under restrictions since October 2022.
The British Ministry of Defence (MoD) has said that the Kerch bridge is under a “significant security burden.”
The British intelligence said, “The Crimean bridge will remain a vital link in sustaining Russia’s occupation of Crimea and its forces in southern Ukraine.
“However, it is now almost certainly a significant security burden requiring multi-domain protection, including the use of air defence systems and crews who would otherwise be deployed elsewhere.”
Vladimir Putin has been warned that if Ukrainian forces take back Crimea Russian troops “will panic” and they “will become weaker.”
President Volodymyr Zelensky’ advisor, Mykhailo Podolyak said that they have many strategies one of which is to take back their territory of Crimea.
Dmitry Medvedev has previously said that if Ukraine takes back Crimea then a nuclear bomb will be used, Podolyak actually believes that Putin will be forced to do this in order to win the war.
Medvedev, the deputy chairman of the Security Council of Russia warned on Wednesday that there will “direct conflict with NATO.”
He warned on 29 August that there will be an “apocalypse” as Ukrainian troops keep attacking Crimea which was annexed in 2014 into the Russian Federation.
“If this is true (and there is no reason to doubt it now), then this is direct, legally significant evidence of the West’s complicity in the war against Russia on the side of Stepan Bandera’s state [Stepan Bandera was a leader of the Organisation of Ukrainian Nationalists, whom the Russians are afraid of – ed.].
“Sophisticated casus belli, and the opportunity for Russia to act within the jus ad bellum against everyone and everything in the NATO countries.
“Sad, unfortunately. The prophecies of the Apocalypse are getting closer.”
