Jun 13, 2024

This was reported by RBC-Ukraine with reference to the head of the Defense Intelligence of Ukraine Kyrylo Budanov during a telethon.


He noted that the Russian occupiers are trying to strengthen air defense in Crimea. In this regard, new air defense systems are being deployed.

"The newest elements of the S-500 have now arrived. This is basically a trial use of them. But they have already appeared there (in Crimea - ed.)," Budanov said.

The DIU chief added that the Russian occupiers continue to use the Crimean bridge to transfer primarily military personnel and some other cargo.

"The Kerch bridge has always been used and is being used, and as long as it exists, it will be used. It is true that the ferries carry the main cargo, but the bridge is also used for passing personnel, first of all. There is less cargo, but for the personnel it is the main way," the scout said.
