The Crimean Bridge could have been attacked by modified underwater drones, Russian Telegram channel Mash reported on July 17.

Jet ski wreckage was found in the area of the attack near pillar 145. The location of the wreckage suggests that the jet skis were aimed at the bridge’s pillar.

Russian social media groups also claim that at the time of the attack, a U.S. Air Force MQ-9 Reaper reconnaissance and strike drone was seen "flying in the sky over the Black Sea."

Since the early hours of July 17, traffic has been stopped on the Crimean Bridge.
