The UK's defense ministry has highlighted the deployment of eight barges on the southern side of the Kerch Bridge as part of Russia's efforts to fortify the structure. These barges are strategically placed to protect the bridge and shipping channel, with the aim of limiting the potential angles of attack for Ukrainian Unmanned Surface Vehicles (USVs), according to the intelligence dispatch from the UK's defense ministry. Despite previous instances of damage to barriers near the bridge due to storms, Russia continues to bolster its defenses around the Kerch Bridge, a crucial link used for military transportation between Russia and occupied Crimea.

The Kerch Bridge's significance lies in its role as a key military route for Russia, enabling the transport of military supplies into Crimea and southwestern Ukraine. However, tensions between Russia and Ukraine have escalated, with Ukrainians viewing the bridge as an illegal structure following the annexation of Crimea by Russia in 2014. Attacks on the bridge by Ukrainian forces in October 2022 and July 2023 have forced the Russians to reevaluate its use, with reports indicating a decline in Russian military freight trains crossing the bridge since February. This has led Russia to explore alternative transportation routes, such as a new railway along the Azov Sea, signaling a shift in military logistics amid ongoing conflicts in the region.
