"The same tracks are probably also used to transport weapons, ammunition, armoured vehicles and other means used in the war of aggression against Ukraine. Therefore, it is quite natural that these tracks are tired and will not function for some time," he said.
Yusov added that the infrastructure in Crimea will function properly only when the peninsula returns to the control of the Ukrainian authorities.
"There will be no peace on the peninsula as long as there are Russian terrorists there," Yusov said.
Recall that on the morning of May 18, the occupiers reported that a railway line had been blown up in the Russian-occupied Crimea in the Simferopol district. As a result, 8 cars of a freight train derailed.
