Statements about the involvement of the United States in the attack on the Crimean bridge are not true, said on Tuesday, July 18, at a briefing the head of the press service of the US State Department, Matthew Miller. The broadcast was conducted on the Youtube channel of the State Department.
“This is absolutely not true,” Miller said in response to a related question.
Thus, he commented on the statements of the Russian Ambassador to Washington, Anatoly Antonov, about the involvement of the United States in the crimes of Kyiv, including the terrorist attack on the Crimean bridge. Constructive solutions and decisions: the president called for strengthening the security of the Crimean bridge How much will the restoration work take and how much will it cost
In particular, Antonov pointed out that the US cover-up of Ukrainian radicals allows us to confidently talk about Washington’s involvement in Kiev’s crimes. According to the ambassador, Washington has more than once justified Kiev’s terrorist acts against Russian citizens and facilities, and also pretended not to notice the murders of journalist Daria Dugina, military commissar Vladlen Tatarsky, “the brutal shelling of residential areas of Donetsk and other Russian cities by the Armed Forces of Ukraine.” In a similar way, the United States distanced itself from last year’s sabotage on the Crimean bridge.
On July 17, the National Anti-Terrorism Committee (NAC) reported that two Ukrainian surface drones attacked the Crimean bridge in the area of the 145th support from the Krasnodar Territory, two people were killed. The Ministry of Transport of the Russian Federation recommended that passengers traveling to Crimea and back use alternative routes.
President of the Russian Federation Vladimir Putin held a meeting with members of the government, heads of regions and departments on the terrorist act. The head of state specified that the Ministry of Defense was preparing proposals for retaliatory measures, and also said that he was waiting for proposals to improve the security of this transport facility.
The Investigative Committee (IC) of Russia announced the involvement of the Ukrainian special services in the emergency. According to Art. 205 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation (“Terrorist act”), a criminal case was initiated.Share:
