Arestovich hinted that there would be no strike on the Crimean bridge yet and named several reasons
From a technical point of view, destroying the Crimean bridge is very difficult;
This is how Aleksey Arestovich, the adviser to the head of the President’s Office, answered the question about the bridge’s fate across the Kerch Strait in an interview with Yulia Latynina.
“We see how long and hard the Antonovsky bridge is being damaged and has not yet been destroyed. The Kerch bridge is several times stronger, larger, higher, and so on. “So what? Scratched, then what? The propaganda effect will be better. Now the question is: do we want to fight for the sake of the propaganda effect, or do we want to do what is supposed to be in military science? It seems to me that we are for the second sense. The Ukrainian army is fighting for the second sense, and Zaluzhny plans for the second sense,” he said.
According to Arestovich, if a political and ideological effect arises, “this is, of course, good, but we do not take cities by dates.”
“Another thing is that when military and ideological needs coincide (drowning of the “Moscow” cruiser), this is a nice bonus. But it is probably not an end,” he added.
Arestovich, in response to a clarifying question, repeated that with the means available to Ukraine, the bridge is not only difficult to destroy but damaged.
