In the area of the Kerch Strait, near the illegal bridge between russia and the temporarily occupied Crimea (coordinates: 45.2432237; 36.5845773), russian occupiers are conducting preparatory work to flood a second ferry.
According to the Defense Intelligence of the Ministry of Defense of Ukraine, the occupants plan to flood at least six watercraft of the specified type in order to create a defensive zone in front of the Kerch Bridge.

Between the flooded ferries, the russians intend to install pontoon barriers. In this way, the enemy aims to protect the Kerch Bridge from damage.

Recent strikes on the Kerch Bridge have further worsened the situation for the enemy forces in the south of Ukraine and elicited a hysterical reaction from the military-political leadership of Moscow.
In the Kremlin, there were demands to secure by any means the object that is critically important for the military logistics of the russian army.
