On Saturday the Ukraine blew up a small section of the Kerch bridge which connects Russia to Crimea.
An analyst described the blowing up of the Kerch bridge as a “punch in the face for Putin on his birthday” as the tyrant turned 70 on Friday.
The Kerch bridge has been vital for Putin as it is used to supply troops, fuel and supplies for those who live in Crimea and also is used to send logistics to war in southern Ukraine.
A Russian senator, Alexander Bashkin has vowed the Kerch bridge attack will not go unanswered.

Kremlin insiders have warned that Vladimir Putin will use tactical nuclear weapons to avoid a military defeat as Ukraine are making huge gains and now have their eyes set on Crimea.
Farida Rustamova, a Russian investigative journalist, was told by a Kremlin insider, “The 300,000 [conscripts] are just a distraction.
“Now it’s partial, but then there will be mass mobilisation, and after that tactical nuclear weapons.”

Two weeks ago Putin said, that he would use all “forces and means at our disposal” to protect Russian territory and sovereignty after four regions were annexed and a decree was signed making them part of the Russian Federation.
Just last week the US President Joe Biden also warned that world is for the “first time since the Cuban missile crisis, we have a direct threat of the use of a nuclear weapon if in fact things continue down the path they are going.
“I don’t think there’s any such thing as the ability to easily use a tactical nuclear weapon and not end up with Armageddon.”
