Invasión rusa: Informe de situación - día 509

By Phil Bainbridge

July 17, 2023 - Se informó sobre dos explosiones en el vital Puente del Estrecho de Kerch, que une a la región de Crimea controlada con Rusia con el territorio continental ruso, que causó la muerte de dos personas y que un tramo de carretera quedara colgando a un lado.

Russian sate media has blamed the attack on Ukrainian “special forces” operating unmanned sea-borne drones, but some in Kyiv are speculating it may have been planned in Moscow to justify the lapsing of the Black Sea grain deal which expires Monday. The Kremlin has threatened to pull out of the deal unless “obstacles to the export of Russian food and fertilisers” are removed.

Russian President Vladimir Putin says he regards use of cluster munitions as criminal but may deploy them in a “reciprocal action” if Ukraine uses them against Russian forces. Niether Russia, Ukraine or the U.S. signed up to the UN Convention banning their use and Human Rights Watch believes both sides have already used them.
