Conspiracy theorists claim British intelligence plotted to blow up Crimea bridge

An alleged plan headed by senior British intelligence officers to blow up Crimea’s Kerch Bridge has supposedly been obtained by a news website called The Grayzone.

The presentation of the alleged scheme was made in April 2022 and almost six months on, Kerch Bridge was attacked on Saturday (October 8) with differing opinions on what caused the explosion which led to the partial collapse of the road along the bridge.

Chris Donnelly, a senior British Army intelligence operative and veteran high ranking NATO advisor, allegedly requested proposals for providing "audacious" support to Kyiv's "maritime raiding operations".

The aim of the plan was to cause “destruction of the bridge over the Kerch Strait".

An anonymous source provided the documents and correspondence that plotted the alleged operation to The Grayzone.

According to documents, the reasons for the alleged operation included the likes of aiming to “degrade” Russia’s ability to blockade Kyiv, “erode” Moscow’s “warfighting capability”, as well as isolating Russian land in Crimea by “denying resupply by sea and overland via Kerch bridge".

Chris Donnelly was alleged to have declared the proposals to be "very impressive indeed", according to emails obtained by the news website.

The attack on October 8 was initiated by the explosion of a truck that set two oil tankers ablaze, causing two Crimea-bound spans of the roadway to collapse into the sea below as well as killing three people.

The bridge has been heavily defended since February 24 due to its purpose as serving as an important route for military equipment to be transported to Russian soldiers on the frontlines in Ukraine.
