The Federal Security Service of the Russian Federation accused Kyrylo Budanov, the Head of the Chief Directorate of Intelligence of the Ministry of Defence of Ukraine, of “organising a terrorist attack” on the Crimea Bridge illegally built by the occupiers. The special service of the aggressor state claims that 12 accomplices had been allegedly identified.

As Russian mass media report with reference to the FSB, citizens of Russia, Ukraine, and Armenia allegedly took part in the explosion. Eight of the 12 “identified accomplices” are reported to be detained.

In addition, Russian special services claim that the explosives were disguised as construction film rolls. At the same time, according to the FSB, the explosive device traveled a long way until it got to the Crimea Bridge – the explosive was transported from Ukraine to Bulgaria, then to Yerevan, Georgia, and finally reached Russia.

At the same time, social networks are actively discussing the fact that the FSB once again fabricated the case files, because the X-ray photo of the truck does not match the truck in the video filmed on the bridge – one axle is missing and a spare wheel is located in a different place.

The experts of InformNapalm international intelligence community believe that the explosives are not visible on the X-rays, because they were not in the truck.

“The version about the explosion of the truck is purposefully propagated by the FSB so that they are not accidentally exposed. The footage shows that the truck was not the cause of the explosion but simply caught in the light of the explosion. Also, the version with the truck does not explain why two highway spans of the bridge broke off in different places,” the group said in a statement.

Meanwhile, the Chief Directorate of Intelligence of the Ministry of Defence of Ukraine called the accusations put forward by the Russian FSB “nonsense.”

“The whole activity of the FSB and the Investigative Committee is nonsense. These are fake structures that serve the Putin regime, so we will definitely not comment on their statements. It’s surprising that not a single business card has been found near the Crimea Bridge,” said Andriy Yusov, a representative of the press service of the Chief Directorate of Intelligence.
