Prof Michael Clark says Ukraine likely behind bridge attack: 'I'd be astonished if it was anybody else'

Security and defence analyst Professor Michael Clarke has been speaking to Sky News this morning with one of his regular updates.

Commenting on the Kerch bridge attack, he says Ukraine was likely behind it, adding: "I'd be astonished if it was anybody else".

"It wasn't an accident - you don't lose a bridge like that in an accident.

"If it was some sort of accidental truck explosion, then the bridge was extremely badly designed and very very badly built, because bridges are designed to take that sort of thing."

Why hasn't Ukraine claimed responsibility?

One reason could be because such an attack would have required missiles "they're not supposed to have", he says, adding: "I think it (also) suits them to keep everybody guessing, to be honest.”

"We all know it was them and they won't want to reveal how they did it, because they might want to do something similar again."

Was the attack on Zaporizhzhia a Russian response to what happened on the bridge?

"I'm sure.

"In a way, the Russians are doing the worst they can - at the moment all they can do is attack civilian areas with not very accurate missiles.

"When people worry about the Russian response - they're already doing their worst.

"If they want to respond, then they've got to escalate the war in a different direction, which I think Putin is struggling with at the moment.

"But on the battlefield it won't make any difference to the Ukrainians.

"They're moving forward on all fronts at the moment, and they're finding ways of frustrating the Russian logistics and making the Russians look foolish in the eyes of their own people."

What about Russia's nuclear threats?

"Everyone is talking about nuclear weapons and they want us to talk about nuclear weapons, but I think it's still a very remote prospect, to be honest.

"But there are other ways it might be escalated.

"The war has already escalated into the Baltic Sea with the sabotage of the (Nord Stream) pipelines.

"It may escalate geographically towards Moldova, towards the western Balkans.

"It has escalated in terms of rhetoric - Putin says it's not really about Ukraine, it's not even about NATO enlargement.

"This is about the war of the west on Russia, trying to destroy Russia and Russian civilisation.

"That's absurd but that's where we are now that the rhetoric is going up and up and up, because he's trying to convince the Russian people that they're somehow under attack from the 'fascists in the West'.

"So he's casting around for ways of grabbing the agenda back, because on the ground he's losing on all fronts at the moment."

The first time someone I knew died it was a really big drama - now it's routine

Our Ukraine War Diaries podcast, now on its 49th episode, has been telling the story of the conflict via first-person dispatches from the ground.

As has regularly been the case, the latest episode isn't always easy listening as we hear from military volunteer Seva Koshel, who describes his changing feelings towards death.

"I was talking to my friend who is now an officer in the army. Guys from his unit, who were under his command, have been killed. My friend must go with the body to his village for the funeral.

"It's very tough for him. It's the first time for him. I hope it will be the first and the last time but we don't know.

"In the previous podcast I was telling that the war has become routine, that we do what we do - and actually the same happens unfortunately with our soldiers and officers who we lose.

"First time when a guy was killed whom I knew, it was quite a shock and it was a really big drama, and now, you just know, you just understand that, 'Okay, he's not with us anymore'.

"I mean it's not okay, definitely. But I just get used to that because I have quite, quite a few of them, whom I knew and who are not with us anymore."

The latest episode also features entries from Seva's wife Oksana, who works in overseas education and has remained in Kyiv with her husband since the start of the invasion, and Ilyas, a married father who is now back in Kyiv having initially fled to Lviv.

'Russian provocations': Ukraine rubbishes Belarusian government claims that it is planning to invade

Ukraine's ministry of foreign affairs has issued a statement in response to claims that it could be planning an attack on Belarus.

Belarus's authoritarian leader Alexander Lukashenko has voiced his support for Russia's invasion of Ukraine in recent months.

Belarus relies financially and politically on Russia - Putin's backing of Lukashenko helped him to ride-out an international backlash following his crackdown on anti-government protests in 2020.

Before Russia invaded Ukraine in February, it deployed thousands of troops to Belarus under the pre-text of military drills, before sending them across the border.

Ukraine's MFA said that its ambassador in the Belarusian capital Minsk was invited to the foreign affairs ministry of Belarus and handed a diplomatic note.

"In the note, the Belarusian side claimed that Ukraine is allegedly planning an attack on the territory of Belarus.

"This information does not correspond to reality.

"We categorically reject yet another insinuation of the Belarusian regime.

"We do not rule out that the handing over of the diplomatic note may be part of the plan of the Russian Federation to carry out a provocation to further accuse Ukraine.

"We call on the Belarusian people not to succumb to provocations.

"Ukraine has never encroached on foreign territories. We strictly adhere to the fundamental norms and principles of international law and the UN Charter.

"The authorities in Belarus should stop following the whims of the Kremlin and immediately stop supporting Russia in its aggression against Ukraine."

US ambassador to Ukraine Bridget Brink has also weighed in, tweeting: "Let’s be clear about who’s attacking whom – Russia violated Ukraine’s sovereignty and launches strikes that kill men, women, and children while they sleep, and Belarus allows its territory to be used in support of Russia’s invasion of Ukraine."

Ukraine to print special stamp commemorating Kerch bridge attack

Ukraine's postal service has said it will print a special stamp to commemorate the damage to the Kerch bridge.

The 12-mile road and rail bridge, which runs between Russia and Crimea, was ruined after a powerful truck explosion on Saturday.

Some of the damage has been repaired since then but it was still seen as a blow to Moscow's annexation of the region.

It also took place a day after Putin's 70th birthday.

The head of Ukraine's National Security and Defence Council, Oleksiy Danilov, posted a video of the burning bridge on social media alongside a video of Marilyn Monroe singing Happy Birthday, Mr President.

Nobody has claimed responsibility for the attack on the bridge.

Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova has said Kyiv'sreaction to the destruction "testifies to its terrorist nature".
