Near the Kerch Bridge, the Russian occupiers are strengthening their defense with air defense systems. The invaders are also using civilian vessels for military purposes, according to the ATESH resistance movement.

Thus, the guerrillas recorded the deployment of air defense systems to protect the bridge from possible air attacks by the Ukrainian Defense Forces.

"In particular, S-300 systems and Pantsyr-S1 surface-to-air missile systems were detected. Such actions of the occupiers indicate their strategic priorities aimed at strengthening the air defense of the bridge to the detriment of the defense of Russian cities," the statement says.

At the same time, the guerrillas managed to record the use of civilian vessels to transport military cargo.

"We also note a reduction in the movement of Russian Navy warships," the statement says.

Russian troops in temporarily occupied Crimea

Recently, the ATES guerrillas recorded the arrival of Russian military equipment in occupied Simferopol in Crimea, which will be later transferred to the front.

The guerrillas also recorded the build-up of Russian air defense forces in Crimea after successful strikes by the Ukrainian Defense Forces on the airfield in the village of Hvardiiske.

In addition, representatives of the resistance movement discovered the location of Russian missile depots in the occupied Crimea.
