Putin holds Ukraine responsible for attack on Kerch bridge

Moscow, Jul 17 (Prensa Latina) Russian President Vladimir Putin on Monday held the Ukrainian authorities responsible for the drone attack on the Crimean bridge, an action he described as cruel and senseless from the military point of view.

“What happened is another terrorist attack by Kiev,” Putin assured at a meeting to discuss the situation on the Kerch bridge in Crimea, adding, “it is a senseless crime, as that road is not used for military transport,” he explained.

The head of State carried on saying, “And it was cruel, as innocent civilians were injured and killed.”

“We instructed the Russian Federal Security Service, the Investigative Committee and a number of other agencies to make crystal-clear what happened. I have no doubt that all the circumstances will be established,” the Russian leader asserted.

“There will be a response from Russia, of course. The Defense Ministry is preparing appropriate proposals,” Putin noted at the closure of the meeting on the situation on the Crimean bridge. Two Ukrainian surface drones carried out a terrorist attack on that facility in the early hours of Monday morning, Russia’s National Anti-Terrorist Committee reported.

Meanwhile, the Russian Investigative Committee opened a criminal file classified as a “terrorist attack,” as it caused the death of two adults and injured a child, in addition to damaging the road.

Local authorities stopped traffic on the bridge in the morning. The railroad has already resumed operations. Cars will soon be able to leave Crimea by ferry, whilst trucks will have to pass only through the new Russian regions.
