Russia Rains Fire on Ukraine in Vicious Revenge for Crimea Bridge Blast

Russia’s bloodthirsty dictator Vladimir Putin unleashed a rain of fire all over Ukraine, bombing dozens of Ukrainian cities.

This comes in a presumed retaliation for last week’s truck bomb attack that damaged his favorite geopolitical project: the bridge between the Russian mainland and the Russian-occupied Crimean Peninsula.

Putin Must Have Been Furious Beyond Imagination

The 12-mile-long Crimean Bridge suffered a major explosion on Saturday morning, just hours after Putin celebrated his 70th jubilee.

Even though after months of heavy fighting, Russia managed to link to Crimea by land over Southern Ukraine, the Crimean Bridge remained a vital route for supplying the Russian military units in the south.

Even though Russian authorities partly restored the road traffic and fully the railroad traffic via the bridge as of Sunday, the damage to the facility significantly lowered Moscow’s ability to send more tanks, trucks, and supplies to Southern Ukraine by way of Crimea.

Ukraine’s government has neither confirmed nor denied it was behind the bridge blast.

However, Mykhailo Podolyak, the top adviser to Ukraine’s courageous President Volodymyr Zelenskyy, cautioned it was possible the attack could have been carried out by Russian intelligence agency FSB as part of its power struggle in Moscow.

Russia Turned Into ‘Globally Despised Terrorist State’

Dozens of cities all over Ukraine, a nation the size of Texas, were hit by Russian missiles on Monday in a retaliatory attack that overwhelmingly targeted civilian homes, infrastructure, and even children’s playgrounds.

A Monday evening report by The Daily Mail put the number of Russian missiles fired against Ukraine at 83.

Earlier, in the afternoon, in a social media post, Ukraine’s top military commander Gen. Valery Zaluzhnyi announced that Russia fired 76 missiles, of which the Ukrainian military managed to shoot down 41. He did warn more missiles were incoming.

As of the early evening, at least 11 people had been killed; more than 60 had been wounded by the Russian bombardment all over Ukraine.

Those included eight killed and 42 injured in Ukraine’s capital Kyiv alone. One of the Russian missiles hit the building of Germany’s consulate in Kyiv, which was empty at the time.

Some of the cities were also attacked with suicide drones supplied to Russia by its ally Iran, Ukraine’s President Zelenskyy announced in a video statement on social media.

He filmed himself close to his office in downtown Kyiv to dispel lies by Russia’s propaganda media that he fled the city.

In a video statement of his own, Putin admitted he ordered strikes against the “military and energy infrastructure” of Ukraine, which he accused of carrying out a “terrorist attack” against the Crimean Bridge.

The atrocious mass murderer shamelessly accused his victim Ukraine of being the same as “international terrorist organizations,” which is why Russia had to “respond to such crimes.”

Ukraine’s Defense Minister, Oleksii Reznikov, vowed the nation’s resistance spirit would never be broken. He stated Russia now only has the future of a “rogue terrorist state” despised around the world.
