“This issue was discussed at a meeting of the relevant parliamentary committee. I was there together with General (Valery) Zaluzhny, our commander-in-chief and chief of the General Staff, General (Sergey) Shaptala. Our military gave the following explanation that after the victory, an appropriate investigation would be carried out. And in If the facts are established that a crime was committed by one of the military or representatives of other forces of the security and defense sector, they will definitely be held accountable,” the head of the Defense Ministry stressed.
At the moment, the task is to win the war and only then look for those responsible for clearing Chongar and other bridges on the Crimean isthmuses.

And the facts are all being collected today, recorded, including by the Security Service, counterintelligence. – something – this is definitely not for the civilian part of the government, this is a question for the management of the security and defense sector. That is, people in uniform who were responsible for this direction,” Reznikov noted.
At the same time, the minister, citing the military, pointed out that blowing up the bridge would not have stopped the enemy’s advance.
“There are ten more passages from Crimea by land, and not by bridges! And therefore, undermining the bridge would not affect the ability of the Russians to move in this direction. This was responsibly said by one of the military generals, who is now in political opposition, I am from him for the first time heard,” the head of the Defense Ministry added.
Earlier, information appeared on the network that Russian troops quickly occupied the Kherson region in the first days of a full-scale invasion, because the Ukrainian side cleared the administrative border with Crimea before the start of the war.
