Former NATO commander General Philip Breedlove said Ukraine could deal a devastating blow to the Kremlin by blowing up Crimean bridge. Harpoon rockets can be used for this.

It is reported by The Times.

According to Breedlove, an attack on the bridge would be justified by Russian aggression against Ukraine from all sides:

“The Kerch bridge is a legitimate target. All bridges have their weak points. With the right choice of target, the Kerch bridge may become unusable for some time,” he said.

To do this, you can use Harpoon missiles, inflicting a crushing blow on the bridge connecting the Kerch Strait and the mainland of the Russian Federation.

By the way, Breedlove supported such an attack when Russia launched airstrikes on the city of Kramatorsk.

General Marchenko predicted the fate of the Crimean bridge after the supply of weapons from the West

The Kerch bridge is the number one target for the Ukrainian military. This is the “main gut” of pulling up the reserves of the Russian Federation. Therefore, as soon as “this gut” is cut off, Russia will begin to panic. This was announced by Major General of the Armed Forces of Ukraine Dmitry Marchenko in an interview with Radio Liberty.

Asked if the Kerch Bridge would be one of the targets after the Ukrainian military received the promised weapons, Marchenko said:

“Yes, it is 100%. It is not a secret either for their military or for our military. Neither for their civilians, nor for our civilians. This will be the number one target to defeat,” he said.

Marchenko believes that we should cut off the “main gut” of pulling up reserves. As soon as “this gut” is cut off, the Russian Federation will begin to panic.

“And believe me: those who ran in Simferopol and Crimea with Russian flags, they will quickly get Ukrainian ones and will run with Ukrainian ones. Well, because, unfortunately, the population there is like that,” Major General of the Armed Forces of Ukraine added.

By the way, through the Kerch Bridge, Russia is moving its troops and equipment to the territory of Crimea, as well as to the south of Ukraine.

Earlier we said that military expert Oleg Zhdanov assessed the prospects for a strike on the Crimean bridge.
