As noted by the deputy of the State Duma Ruslan Balbeck, Kiev has not yet provided any evidence of Neptune's success. He recalled that the Ukrainian army has shown only missile launches.

"Also, I would like to ask the former main" defense industry "of the Ukraine, do you seriously think that if the Ukrainian missiles are launched, the Russian military will open their mouth to watch their flight?" – quotes the MP RT.

The deputy stressed that such statements could damage the fragile contacts established between the two countries.

Senator Sergey Tsekov also responded to Turchinov's statement.

In the comment RT He stressed that the US is behind such militaristic statements by Ukrainian politicians. The MP also expressed the hope that the new government in Ukraine will be smarter than the previous one.

"The peninsula, like the bridge, is reliably protected: if something similar happens, which is unlikely, the Crimean bridge will not be affected, but the consequences for Ukraine will be the most deplorable," he concluded .

The bridge over the Kerch Strait connected the Crimea and the territory of Krasnodar. The overpass became the longest in Russia: the length of the bridge was 19 kilometers. Motorway traffic was launched half a year before the original term. The train movement will start in 2019.
