Details: According to collaborators, the rocket hit the construction equipment while the supporting structures of the bridge survived. However, the opening date has been postponed. Previously, the occupiers were planning to complete the repairs by the end of this week.

Quote from Sobolevskyi: "The bridge has been surrounded by the occupiers from two sides, local residents are not allowed near, they behave almost inappropriately when communicating with people. Be careful and try to stay away from this area. The orcs are on the edge. The bridge itself, according to preliminary data, has suffered serious damage."
