On Oct. 8, 2022, multiple spans of the Crimean Bridge collapsed as a result of a powerful explosion.

The bridge, which was built illegally between Russia and the Ukrainian territory of Crimea, suffered another strike on July 17, and Russia’s Deputy Prime Minister, Marat Khusnullin, admitted that one section of the bridge’s road cannot be restored.

The head of Ukraine’s SBU security service, Vasyl Maliuk, later confirmed his agency’s involvement in these blasts. The most recent operation was a joint effort with the Ukrainian Navy, during which Ukrainian Sea Baby maritime attack drones were used.
