Ukraine considers the Crimean bridge, which connects the occupied peninsula with the Russian mainland, as a legitimate military target.
About it in the interview The Guardian said Mykhailo Podolyak, adviser to the head of the Office of the President.
“This is an illegal construction and the main gate for supplying the Russian army in Crimea. Such objects must be destroyed.” Podolyak said.
Former NATO commander: the Crimean bridge is a legitimate target of UkraineThe former NATO commander considers the Crimean bridge a legitimate target of Ukraine. According to him, an attack on the bridge would be justified and would deal a devastating blow to the Kremlin.

According to him, Ukraine is conducting a counteroffensive aimed at creating “chaos within the Russian forces”: “Our strategy is to destroy logistics, supply lines, ammunition depots and other objects of military infrastructure”.
Podoliak said that in the next two to three months there may be new mysterious incidents similar to those taking place in Crimea.
He also said that the Ukrainian counteroffensive looks completely different from that of the Russians. “Russia seems to have taught everyone that a counteroffensive requires a huge amount of manpower, like a giant fist, and you need to move in only one direction. We do not use the tactics of the 60s and 70s of the last century.”
The adviser noted that Ukraine needs additional rocket launcher systems: with the help of long-range missiles, Ukraine hopes to weaken the forces of the occupiers.
We will remind, according to the Secretary of the National Security Council Oleksiy Danilov, the Crimean bridge will be destroyed as soon as there is a “need and opportunity”.
At the same time, he noted that the bridge is protected by an “insane” number of air defense systems.
Oleksiy Arestovych also predicts that the Crimean bridge will definitely be destroyed, as it was built illegally.
