According to him, the information about the damage to the bridge, disseminated by the Ukrainian Telegram channels, does not correspond to reality.
“There were no strikes on the bridge. There were attempts, but everything was reflected by the air defense system. Nothing flew over the bridge at all, all these are fakes, ”Stremousov said.
He drew attention to the fact that the situation in the region is controlled by the CAA.
“Everything is fine, everything is fine,” Stremousov said.
Antonovskiy bridge is the only bridge for cars that connects Kherson and a part of the Kherson region on the other side through the Dnieper. The Armed Forces of Ukraine repeatedly attacked the crossing, as a result of which the bridge was damaged. So, on July 27, the bridge was fired from a HIMARS multiple launch rocket system (MLRS).
Two days later, servicemen of the Ukrainian army launched a series of rocket attacks on the Kherson region in the direction of the area where the Kakhovka hydroelectric power station is located. The air defense system worked.
The Russian Federation continues the special operation in Ukraine, the beginning of which Russian President Vladimir Putin announced on 24 February. The situation in the Donbass was aggravated in early February against the backdrop of shelling by the Armed Forces of Ukraine. The Donetsk and Lugansk People’s Republics turned to Moscow with a request for help.
