Ten Reasons Why Ukraine Hasn’t Destroyed the Crimean Bridge

William Spaniel, author of “What Caused the Russia-Ukraine War” looks at the explosion at the Crimean Bridge (also known as the Kerch Bridge) providing a direct link between Russia and Crimea. Upon its completion, its 12-mile (19-km) ….

While the takeover of Crimea was nearly bloodless, the situation in eastern Ukraine quickly descended into a state of open warfare that claimed more than 10,000 lives over the next four years.

Upon its completion, the bridge 12-mile (19-km) span made it the longest bridge in Europe, connecting civilians to the bigger country and allowing Russia to transfer supplies and military equipment to the region.

Russian officials and a “senior Ukrainian official” speaking to The New York Times have claimed that the cause of the explosion was a bomb loaded onto a truck. The BBC however claimed it is more likely that the explosion was caused by a maritime drone.[Adams, Paul (9 October 2022). “Crimean bridge: Who – or what – caused the explosion?”. BBC News. Archived from the original on 10 October 2022. Retrieved 10 October 2022.] According to Ukrainska Pravda and the UNIAN (Ukrainian Independent Information Agency), the attack was carried out by the Security Service of Ukraine (SBU).[“Security Service of Ukraine behind explosion on Crimean bridge”. Ukrainska Pravda. Archived from the original on 8 October 2022. Retrieved 8 October 2022.][“Украинские СМИ со ссылкой на источник сообщили, что взрыв на Крымском мосту – операция СБУ” [Ukrainian media, citing a source, reported that the explosion on the Crimean bridge was an SBU operation.]. Meduza (in Russian). Archived from the original on 8 October 2022. Retrieved 8 October 2022.]

A joint effort of several authors who do find that nobody can keep standing at the side and that “Everyone" must care about what is going on in today’s world. We are a bunch of people who do not mind that somebody has a totally different idea but is willing to share the ideas with others and to be Active and willing to let others understand how "today’s decisions will influence the future”. Therefore we would love to see many others to "Act today".
