Bridge connecting Crimea to Russia destroyed, Kremlin talks about terrorism

“The reaction of the Kyiv regime to the civil infrastructure damage demonstrates its terrorist nature”, stated the spokeswoman for the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Russia, Maria Zakharova, quoted by Russian news agencies. Ukrainian authorities released today several ironic comments about the explosion, without claiming responsibility. The bridge connecting mainland Russia to the Crimean Peninsula was blown up following, according to RIA Novosti and Tass news agencies, a fuel depot fire.

Protests in Iran continue to accumulate victims

Iranian Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei publicly broke weeks of silence over Iran’s biggest protests in years to condemn the “riots” and hold the United States and Israel accountable for the protest and demonstrations. Khamenei’s statements came at a time when the protests that started after the death of Mahsa Amini spread across the country, thus entering the third week, despite the government’s efforts to suppress them.

Iranian authorities have repeatedly blamed foreign countries and exiled opposition groups for the escalation of protests and demonstrations, but without providing evidence. The German Foreign Minister defended that the European Union (EU) should apply a set of sanctions to Iran, given the recent cases of repression, namely banning the entry of citizens and freezing their assets.
