Ukrainian missile attack struck the Chonhar Bridge
A Ukrainian missile attack struck the Chonhar Bridge connecting Russian-held parts of the Kherson region with the Crimean peninsula, forcing traffic to be diverted to a different route, Russia-appointed officials in both regions said on June 22.
Vladimir Saldo, the Russian-appointed Kherson governor, said the road was damaged but no casualties were reported. He said Storm Shadow missiles were likely to have been used for the attack and that the order came from London.
Crimea’s governor, Sergei Aksyonov, said specialists were examining the site to determine when traffic over the bridge could resume.
Known as “the gate to Crimea,” the Chonhar Bridge is one of a handful of bridges linking Crimea – which was annexed by Russia in 2014 – with mainland Russian-controlled Ukraine.
