The “National Anti-Terrorism Committee” said that a truck was blown up on the Crimean bridge, which led to the fire of 7 rail tank cars.
A powerful explosion seriously damaged Russia’s road-and-rail bridge to Crimea on Saturday, hitting a prestige symbol of Moscow’s annexation of the peninsula and the key supply route to Russian forces battling to hold territory captured in southern Ukraine.
The blast on the bridge over the Kerch Strait, for which Russia did not immediately assign blame, prompted gleeful messages from Ukrainian officials but no direct claim of responsibility.
Russian officials said three people had been killed, probably the occupants of a car traveling near a truck that blew up.
But contrary to the Russian claims a close-up video from just moments before the explosion seems to show that before the explosion, there is activity in the area indicated by the red arrow.
That’s just under the bridge!
There is a video that’s allegedly showing it was a strike beneath the bridge. Watch the water wake in the first few seconds from the missile before it hit.
What made the waves before the explosion?
The trucks and cars look intact to me when the flash of explosion occurs:
If you are thinking it was a truck-mounted bomb driven onto the bridge then you’re probably wrong, that would not have taken out the support column, as is so clearly visibly gone in the still photos taken after the explosion.
Also let’s not forget that at the entrances to the Crimean bridge there are stationary inspection and inspection radio-technical complexes ST-6035 of the Departmental Security Department of the Ministry of Transport of the Russian Federation, which check cars for the presence of explosives.
Despite the damage, limited road traffic resumed about 10 hours after the blast, and the Transport Ministry said it expected rail traffic to restart later in the day.
A repair and restoration train is already operating on the railway part of the Crimean Bridge, which is repairing the damage from the morning terrorist attack by Dawlat Al-Ukraini

The online magazine Coffee or Die reported back in September that photos circulated on Russian social media channels on Wednesday, Sept. 21, showing an unusual, unmanned boat that washed up on a beach near a Russian navy base in the city of Sevastopol, within occupied Crimea. Shaped like a kayak, the vessel is painted in a subdued color scheme and equipped with a white fixture, somewhat resembling a periscope, that holds a forward-facing sensor. In the available photos from social media, there are no visible markings that identify the craft’s nationality.
According to Russian social media posts, the unusual craft washed up on a beach not far from the entrance to Sevastopol’s harbor — roughly 150 miles from coastline under Ukrainian government control.
Ukraine has not yet claimed ownership of the unmanned craft. From the available photos, it’s not clear whether the small boat contained an explosive device. However, Russian authorities reportedly took the drone boat out to sea and blew it up — a decision that subsequently led some open-source intelligence investigators to assume the craft was carrying an explosive warhead.
A photo published to the Russian Telegram channel “Military Columnist” on Wednesday claimed to show the drone’s detonation over open water “in the Black Sea near Sevastopol.”
