The explosion on the Crimean Bridge could be part of a struggle between Russian security forces, the adviser to the head of the President's Office, Mykhailo Podolyak, said on Twitter, on Oct. 8.

“Seriously now, the FSB is about to be knocked down, as they missed the explosion on Putin's bridge,” Podolyak wrote. “Now the Ministry of Defense will be able to blame the FSB for the upcoming defeats in the south. It isn’t yet clear who blew up the bridge? Let me remind you that the truck came from Russia.”

An explosion and fire hit the Crimean bridge early on Oct. 8. The bridge connects Russia and the Ukrainian peninsula, which has been under Russian military occupation since 2014. The bridge is a vital route through which Russia moves reinforcements and supplies for its invasion forces.

The bridge is now partially destroyed, and traffic across it has been suspended. At first, the invaders stated that a “tank of fuel” had caught on fire, later they said that allegedly a truck had blown up on the bridge.

Meanwhile, NV’s sources in law enforcement agencies said that the blowing up of the bridge was a special operation by Ukraine’s SBU security service.

Russian dictator Vladimir Putin has ordered the creation of a government commission with regard to the "emergency" on the occupied peninsula.
