Damaged bridges will lack technical capacity to support weight of occupiers’ logistics – Natalia Humeniuk

The occupiers are trying to fix the problems with their logistical transport facilities, including bridges. They are trying to patch up both Chonhar and Henichesk bridges and are even “advertising” the launch of a bus route there. However, technically, these bridges can support only light traffic, but not the transportation of the occupiers’ resources.

Natalia Humeniuk, Head of the United Coordinating Press Center of Security and Defense Forces of the South of Ukraine, made this statement during a briefing at Media Center Ukraine – Ukrinform.

“Such routes and such bridges are so damaged that they can support only light vehicles or only passenger transport. Now they are trying to really set up the connection there, but we remember that the enemy can, under the guise of civilian transport, use it as the transportation of their own logistics. Although they lack purely technical capacity to sustain this. That is why the M-17 highway, through Armiansk, remains the priority, where they are gradually pulling up these resources,” Natalia Humeniuk explained.

As reported, on the evening of August 6, the Armed Forces of Ukraine confirmed that at around 3:00 PM they launched a missile attack on Chonhar and Henichesk bridges, which connect the occupied Crimea with mainland Ukraine.
