Ukraine’s Armed Forces (AFU) launched a missile strike on the Antonovsky Bridge in Kherson on the evening of July 26.

The news of Ukraine’s missile strike on the Antonovsky Bridge in Kherson was reported by various Ukrainian telegram channels and Russian news agencies have reported.

Natalia Humenyuk, a spokeswoman for Ukraine’s AFU South command, confirmed the shelling by Ukrainian HIMARS.

“The work of our artillery is so delicate and jewel-like that it is more aimed at demoralizing the enemy troops. That is why there were strikes on the Antonovsky bridge,” she stated

Kirill Stremousov, deputy head of the occupation administration of the Russian-occupied Kherson region, stated on the morning of July 27, that the bridge was completely closed to traffic after the shelling.

The Antonovsky bridge is one of the three crossings over the Dnieper River controlled by the Russian army. It is used to supply the Russian group on the right bank of the river.
