Fact Check: Kerch Strait Bridge WAS Used For Military Transports Legit Target

Has the Kerch Strait Bridge not been used for the transport of Russian military equipment? No, that's not true: The bridge has been essential for reinforcements and supplies to Russian troops who have seized control of territory in southern Ukraine.

The claim appeared in a video on TikTok (archived here) by @opozicny_lider_marcel on July 17, 2023. It opened (translated from Slovak to English by Lead Stories staff):

We have to qualify this attack [on the Kerch Strait Bridge] as an act of terrorism, because it wasn't a military operation as no combat was taking place in the given locality and no armed vehicles nor munitions were transported through here.

Russian military convoys have regularly used the bridge to transport aid in the form of vehicles, armor and fuel for their full-scale invasion of Ukraine. Russia used the Crimean railroads to bring supplies to army regiments in Kherson. The Kerch Strait Bridge and military areas in occupied Crimea are therefore legitimate military targets for Ukrainian troops in their defense against the Russian invasion, according to the Institute for the Study of War.
