MOSCOW, October 13. /TASS/. If the Kiev regime continues terrorist attacks, Russia's response will be even tougher, State Duma Speaker Vyacheslav Volodin said on Thursday.
"Nowhere in the world does anyone negotiate with terrorists. If the terrorist attacks by the Kiev regime continue, the response will be even tougher," he wrote on his Telegram channel.
"All the organizers and perpetrators of the terrorist attacks must be found, those who resist must be destroyed," Volodin stressed.
On Monday, Russian President Vladimir Putin, at a meeting with members of the Russian Security Council, announced a massive high-precision weapons strike on military, communications and energy facilities in Ukraine. Several large enterprises halted or limited production due to power supply problems, and rolling blackouts were announced in a number of regions.
A truck exploded on the Crimean Bridge on Saturday morning, causing several fuel tanks of a train to catch fire. Two spans of the bridge’s roadway to the peninsula collapsed but a lane leading from Crimea to the Krasnodar Region reportedly remained intact. The head of Russia's Investigative Committee, Alexander Bastrykin, slammed it as terrorist attack, indicating that Ukrainian special services were behind it. At the moment, railway traffic on the Crimean bridge has been restored, the ferry crossing works as well.
