We have more than a month's supply of fuel, more than two months of food. There are no risks in this part, as well as reasons for excitement. We in Crimea experienced more difficult times. Therefore, I ask everyone to be patient, to maintain restraint and calmness. The situation is under control."
On October 8, at 6 am, an explosion thundered on the automobile part of the Crimean bridge from the side of the Taman Peninsula. Presumably, a truck exploded on the automobile part of the bridge. As a result, the tanks of the train, which was walking along the railway part of the bridge, caught fire. The alleged moment of the explosion was caught on video.
The UK opened a criminal case, but did not specify under which article. The head of the parliament of the annexed Crimea said that “Ukrainian vandals” damaged the roadway.
After the explosion on the bridge, Russian Railways suspended the sale of tickets for trains to Crimea from it.
The All-Russian Union of Insurers preliminary estimated the damage from the explosion at 200-500 million rubles. In a conversation with RIA Novosti, representatives of the department said that the timing of the restoration could be named only after the completion of the survey.
