Ukraine poked the Russian Bear on Saturday by blowing up the Kerch Bridge from Russia to Crimea.
According to Russian news agency Tass, an explosion occurred on early Saturday morning on one of Putin’s prestige projects and Europe’s longest bridge, which connects Russia and Crimea.
“An object believed to be a fuel storage tank has caught fire on the Crimean Bridge, but the viaduct’s navigable arches sustained no damage, an aide to the head of Crimea, Oleg Kryuchkov, said on Saturday,” according to the news outlet.
“According to preliminary information, a fuel storage tank is on fire… Navigable arches were not damaged. It is too early to speak about causes and consequences. Work to extinguish the blaze is underway,” Kryuchkov wrote in his Telegram channel.
Crimean Bridge, also known as Kerch Strait Bridge or Kerch Bridge, is a pair of parallel bridges, one road, one rail, spanning the Kerch Strait between the Taman Peninsula of Krasnodar Krai in Russia and the Kerch Peninsula of Crimea in Ukraine.
After annexing Crimea at the start of the Russo-Ukrainian War, Russia built the bridge. It is the longest bridge ever constructed in Russia, at 19 kilometers (12 miles), and the longest bridge in all of Europe.
Besides transportation, Russia’s motivation for building the bridge was to legitimize its territorial claims in Crimea.
Russia later today blamed the blast on a fuel truck explosion.
Leftists, warmongers, and those gunning for World War III cheered the news.
Anti-Trump operative Alexander Vindman cheered the news, saying, “I’ve Been Dreaming of this Moment”
It’s like he really is hoping for World War III?

As you may recall, Alex Vindman was the whistleblower in the first fake impeachment trial of President Donald Trump — and lied about it under oath.
In November 2019 NSC leaker Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman testified on day 3 of the Adam Schiff show trial against President Trump.
Ranking member of the House Intelligence Committee Devin Nunes (R-CA) straight up asked Vindman if he discussed the July 25 Trump-Zelensky phone call with anyone outside of the White House.
Vindman testified that he spoke to two people about Trump’s call to Zelensky — George Kent, a State Department employee and ‘someone in the intelligence community’ about Trump’s phone call — Vindman would not name the second person.
House Intel Chairman Adam Schiff (D-CA) quickly interjected when Nunes began to drill down to find out which agency this second anonymous person worked for.
Schiff said he wanted to “protect the whistleblower” and wouldn’t let Vindman answer.
Nunes then pointed out that Vindman previously testified in a closed-door deposition that he DID NOT know the identity of the whistleblower and if that were true then how would he know to keep the second person’s name private?
But during his public testimony, Vindman admitted to being the primary source of the leak to the whistleblower (Eric Ciaramella).
It was later discovered that Vindman also lied about the contents of the call. Trump did not offer the Ukrainian official a quid pro quo. Joe Biden did.
In his memoir, Vindman later described himself as the whistleblower in Trump’s sham impeachment trial.
So, once again Vindman discredits himself and admits he lied under oath to Congress.

Now Vindman is cheering for World War III with Russia. It should not surprise anyone.
