The Ukrainian military on Thursday claimed that they have destroyed a bridge in Kharkiv. In a Facebook post, the General Staff of the Ukrainian Armed Forces said Russian Tiger, Kamaz, and Ural military vehicles were traveling in the convoy when the bridge was destroyed. The claimed ambush took place near the strategically important city of Izyum which Russia is attempting to capture as part of an effort to take control of Ukraine’s eastern Donbas region. Aerial photos of the purported ambush shared by the Ukrainian military show a destroyed bridge, several charred vehicles and smoke billowing from the area. Placing the explosive in a specific place, operators of the Special Operations Forces waited for the enemy, who, without suspecting anything, was driving towards death,” the Ukrainian Armed Forces said in the post. The ambush took place near the city of Izyum in eastern Ukraine.

The important thing here is that the entire column had to stop. Stopping screws up timetables and logistics.

It is vital for the UA/TDF to seriously begin blowing highway bridges and train trestles in the east and south. Russia supplies its military via highways and trains.

The new $800 million in weapons for Ukraine announced yesterday includes C-4 and Semtex.
