The Russian president has confirmed the launch of a major operation against Ukrainian infrastructure in response to the Crimean Bridge attack.

Russian President Vladimir Putin has warned that any further Ukrainian “terrorist” assaults on Russian soil will be met with a significant military response. He was speaking after a wave of missiles struck Ukraine on Monday morning.

Putin confirmed that Russian troops carried out “massive strikes with long-range precision weapons on Ukrainian objects of energy, and military control and communications.” The response came two days after an explosion damaged the strategic Crimean Bridge, for which officials in Kiev claimed responsibility.

“If there are further attempts to conduct terrorist attacks on our soil, Russia will respond firmly and on a scale corresponding to the threats created against Russia,” Putin added.

Earlier in the day, multiple regions of Ukraine came under missile strikes, with at least 11 key infrastructure facilities damaged, according to Ukrainian Prime Minister Denis Shmigal. Putin stated that Russia was retaliating for a number of attempts to strike Russian infrastructure that have been attributed to Kiev.

Among other things, Ukraine has damaged high-voltage power lines that transmit electricity generated by the Kursk Nuclear Power Plant, tried to sabotage the TurkStream natural gas pipeline, and was behind Saturday’s explosion that damaged the Crimean Bridge, Putin stated.

“The Kiev regime has been using terrorist methods for a very long time,” the Russian president said, citing targeted assassinations of public figures, the indiscriminate shelling of Donbass cities and of the Zaporozhye Nuclear Power Plant as examples of such actions.

“De facto, the Kiev regime has put itself on par with international terrorist groups, the most odious of them. Leaving such crimes without a response has become impossible,” he stressed, before confirming that Russia had attacked Ukrainian infrastructure.

In addition to blaming Ukraine for the series of attacks on Russian infrastructure, Putin mentioned the disabling of the Nord Stream undersea pipelines. He said that Russia was being barred by European nations from investigating the sabotage and reiterated that “we all know well the ultimate beneficiary of that crime.”

Putin made the remarks as he chaired a meeting of Russia’s National Security Council.

The sabotage of the power lines connected to the Kursk Nuclear Power Plant was reported in mid-August. According to Russia’s security agency, the FSB, Ukrainian agents launched a series of attacks and took down six transmission towers, endangering power supply to the border Kursk Region and other parts of Russia.

The attempt to destroy Russian energy infrastructure used to supply hydrocarbons to Türkiye and southern Europe was reported by the FSB last month. Unlike with the incidents in Kursk Region, the would-be saboteur was captured and evidence was collected that the suspect was doing the bidding of Ukraine, according to law enforcement.

Saturday’s explosion on the Crimean Bridge, a key link between the peninsula and mainland Russia, killed several civilians and partially collapsed the portion of the bridge used by vehicles. Aleksandr Bastrykin, the head of the Russian Investigative Committee, reported to Putin on Sunday that Ukraine was behind the crime, with the Russian leader concurring that there was “no doubt” about it.

  1. It is clear, that the sock puppet Zelenskyy pocked the Russian bear by sabotaging the bridge with foreseeable consequences. The Ukrainian people are used by NATOs warmongers. Biden ramps up war support and the Americans will fight to the last Ukrainian standing.
    So who is winning? The international clique of Zionist Central banksters and their Rothschild overlords. Countries are their ‘farms’, all production and wealth is sucked off and sometimes you need to cull surplus animals.

  2. We are funding neonazi terrorist. Sad state of NZ foreign policy, which is largely dictated by gloablists. Jabsinda, the agent of WEF and mascot of globalists, is spoiling the reputation NZ had in Asia and we will be looked as neocolonists and facists.

    • /S What kind of reputation is Jabcinda’s Aotearoa NZ looking to achieve?
      We have our own Biden like experts in diplomacy, Mahuta, to name just one!

      • Our own Lewniski sanctioned more Russians today. Little pawns with no sovereignity of their own go for this cheap “self pleasuring” sanctions. I wonder how many Americans were sanctioined when they invaded middle eastern countries and killed millions. No sanctions for using depleted uranium bombs on Serbia either.

  3. Nothing was said nor accomplished to help the ethnic Russians who were suffering genocide in the Donbass beginning in 2014 with the election of a J3wi$h President of the Ukraine, Poroshenko
    That, of course, was followed by the current (s)el-ection of J3wi$h President Zelensky…!
    This is similar to the blackout of news during the Bosnian War in the ’90’s: minimised, disregarded, and barely reported on.
    This time around, independent journalists like Patrick Lancaster is on the scene reporting who the guilty party / government is in this new Bankster war of profit, population attrition, genocide and terror, and;
    IT AIN’T RUSSIA!!!
    See the movie online titled ‘A Snipers War’ starring famed Serbian sniper Deki…
    And see also ‘Donbass’, also available online.
    ‘Hatred’ is another movie that is based on the true fact of Ukrainians vs Poles during World War Two.
    That dynamic has not changed!
    New Zealand and Australia need to declare their nations as ‘NEUTRAL NATIONS’ and withdraw ALL equipment, personnel, financial aid to Ukraine, and then life the sanctions on all politically disenfranchised / boycotted / sanction Russians…least we have a Poseidon torpedo laying on the sea floor in New Zealand and Australian coastal territorial waters!
