Asked whether it’s now possible to send reinforcements to the defending Ukrainian units, he said: “There is a way, but it is rather complicated.”
“Indeed, the bridges are destroyed, it’s doubtful we can use them. Almost every bridge is missing a span. There are certain difficulties, but the city is not cut off. There are several ways to deliver the necessities.”
