In addition, a pre-investigation check is being conducted against the editor of the weekly Internet magazine Washington Examiner after the publication of the article by Tom Rogan, Petrenko said.

Canada says the bridge aims to harden Russia's unlawful hold on the peninsula and to forcibly isolate it from the rest of Ukraine. As part of this investigation, Priymachok and other officers of the Military Prosecutor's Office of Ukraine ignored provisions of Russian legislation and global law, and illegally prosecuted 19 judges of the Russian Constitutional Court because they approved a decree declaring the agreement between Russia and Crimea constitutional, the Investigative Committee reported.

"Fortunately Ukraine has the means to launch air strikes against the bridge in a manner that would render it at least temporarily unusable".

The Russian Investigative Committee (RIC) has opened a criminal case against Tom Rogan, a journalist from the United States, who "recommended" Ukraine blow up the Crimean Bridge, Svetlana Petrenko, the official representative of the Russian RIC, said. The construction of the bridge linking the Crimean Peninsula with mainland Russian Federation kicked off in February 2016.

He also stood by his call for bombing the bridge and even doubled down, arguing that "Russia's own actions in Ukraine are actually true terrorism".
