MOSCOW, October 18. /TASS/. Russian intelligence agencies are working to figure out how explosives used in the October 8 terrorist attack on the Crimean Bridge had been delivered and it’s too early to make any statements, Kremlin Spokesman Dmitry Peskov told reporters on Tuesday.
"There is information that they (the explosives - TASS) could have been shipped from the Odessa area by sea. Our intelligence agencies are now working to figure out and establish all other details so it’s impossible to make any additional statement at the moment,"he pointed out.
Peskov noted that he had nothing to add to what Russian President Vladimir Putin had said concerning the Crimean Bridge terrorist attack. The head of state emphasized earlier that Russia might refuse to extend agreements with Ukraine, Turkey and the UN on food exports via the Black Sea if it was confirmed that explosives used in the terrorist attack on the Crimean Bridge had been shipped from Odessa on a grain vessel.
A truck exploded on the Crimean Bridge on the morning of October 8, causing several fuel tanks of a nearby train to catch fire. Four people were killed in the blast and two spans of the bridge’s roadway to the Crimean Peninsula collapsed. A government commission led by Deputy Prime Minister Marat Khusnullin was formed following the incident. The bridge was later opened to trains and partially to automobiles.
