Preliminary investigation shows that three people were killed as a result of Crimean Bridge blast

Samizdat – October 8, 2022

Saturday’s explosion on the Crimean Bridge, which connects the peninsula with Russia’s Krasnodar Region, claimed the lives of three people, the country’s Investigative Committee said in a statement, citing preliminary data.

“These are, presumably, those riding in a car that was next to the blown-up truck,” the committee said.

It also revealed that the bodies of two of the victims, a man and a woman, have already been recovered from the water and their identities are being established.

According to the investigators, the explosion on the part of the bridge used by automobiles caused the ignition of seven fuel tanks of a train that was heading toward Crimea. The truck was owned by a resident of Russia’s Krasnodar Region, the committee said. A search of the owner’s residence is now underway.

“The route of the car and the corresponding documentation are being studied,” the statement reads.

Earlier on Saturday, the All-Russian Union of Insurers estimated the damage caused to the bridge at 200-500 million rubles ($3.2-8 million).

Since the launch of Russia’s military operation in Ukraine in late February, various Ukrainian officials have promised to attack the Crimean Bridge, which is the only one connecting mainland Russia with Crimea. Kiev views the peninsula as its own territory that was illegally “annexed” by Russia.

Ukraine has stopped short of claiming responsibility for the explosion, but an aide to President Vladimir Zelensky, Mikhail Podoliak, warned on Twitter that what happened on Saturday was “just the beginning.”

  1. How America is becoming more and more entangled. And entangled with this Zelenskyy, who advocates striking Russia with nuclear weapons! Insane, and insane to couple up with this, even though he tries to amend his advocacy. Joe Biden and his jewish advisory administration: worst president ever!

    America is now an accessory, an accomplice. For the first term, accessory means to have taken part willingly, as guilty as any in the criminals who perpetrated the act. An accomplice is a partner.

    To have supplied the weapons to the Ukraine as America has done, is to be both. How not so?

    Is that what you want, America?

    It is as much an accomplice as to what Israel does to its non-citizen citizens, any people who aren’t jewish, within that state, as to the portions of Israel which are within its control.

    How would you like to be one of them, America?

    Would it not be so, in reverse, if Russia supplied the napalm, torpedo and rocket weapons to, say, Israel, to been used by the Israeli air force and navy for foreknowledge of how they were to be used in the attack on the USSLiberty?

    Or, to have taken part, to have been part of the planted thermite explosives in the World Trade Center, if that will ever finally be discovered, revealed? As to discovered and revealed, it already has. How much more evidence needs to be discovered and revealed? The evidence is so overwhelmingly circumstantial as to be conclusive.
