Ucrânia ataca pontes da Crimeia com mísseis Storm Shadow

August 7, 2023 - Kiev usou mísseis Storm Shadow fornecidos pelo Ocidente para atacar
duas pontes que ligam a Crimeia ocupada pela Rússia ao resto da Ucrânia.

One of the strikes tore three holes in the roadway of the Chonhar Bridge, which links Crimea to the Russian-occupied Kherson region, forcing it to close to traffic, according to the Russian-backed governor of the region, Vladimir Saldo. The same bridge was struck by Ukrainian forces in June, Russian-backed officials said.

Sunday’s attacks also injured a driver and closed traffic on a second bridge near the small town of Henichesk, Saldo said. A gas pipeline near the bridge was damaged, cutting off supplies to more than 20,000 people, he added.

The load-bearing structure of the Chonhar Bridge was not damaged, and traffic on the Henichesk Bridge was to be restored by the end of the day, Saldo said. His claims about the extent of the damage could not be independently verified, the New York Times said.
