Georgia says it had no part in Crimean Bridge explosion
Georgian authorities announced that a truck, which exploded on October 8 on the bridge over the Kerch Strait, did not cross Georgian borders.
“Not one load of TNT, nor any truck with other explosives crossed our customs border. If anyone claims that the truck did, in fact, cross our border we’ll open an investigation and the perpetrators will be held accountable,” said Georgy Kakauridze, Deputy Finance Minister of Georgia, on Wednesday.
The FSB and Russian Investigative Committee announced earlier that that explosives used to blow up part of the Crimean Bridge were delivered to Russia through Bulgaria, Georgia, and Armenia. Investigators claim that they have identified 12 suspects in connection with the explosion, among them citizens of Ukraine, Georgia, Armenia, and Russia.
The Armenian customs office says that it carried out all the necessary procedures, and found no risk attached to the cargo involved in explosion on the bridge, reports TASS, citing the State Revenue Committee of Armenia.
Bulgarian authorities announced yesterday that the truck which exploded on the Crimean Bridge was never on Bulgarian territory. “The government of Bulgaria does not permit the use of the country’s name in any connection with terrorist activities,” the Bulgarian government said in statement.
