“The terrorist attack on the Crimean bridge showed that the Ukrainian neighbors are ready to make any sacrifices in order to achieve their interests and the interests of the overseas masters of the Kyiv puppets,” Kolokoltsev was quoted as saying by the press service of the Ministry of Internal Affairs.

Kolokoltsev, in addition, pointed out the need to protect critical infrastructure in Crimea, as well as to ensure the readiness of law enforcement agencies for clear action in any conditions.

On October 17, a court in Moscow arrested those accused of the terrorist attack on the Crimean bridge.

On October 8, at about 06:00 local time, a truck was blown up on the automobile part of the Crimean bridge, as a result of which two spans of the structure partially collapsed.
