Bridge in Irpin

25 February 2022

Irpin

A bridge in Irpin became a symbol of Russia’s military aggression against Ukraine.

An image where people hiding under its remains trying to escape the city shelled by the Russian army spread all over the world. The bridge was the only thing that could provide cover during the evacuation from the city amid constant Russian airstrikes. On the first days of the war, many people left their cars on the bridge when they were fleeing the city. Those pictures were on the pages of many newspapers and journals worldwide.

This bridge that crosses the river Irpin was the main route to Kyiv from the city of Irpin. The Ukrainian army was forced to blow it on 27 February when the Russian army was trying to advance to Kyiv. This stalled their progress and helped the Ukrainian military to keep the capital of Ukraine safe.

A memorial will be built in its place in remembrance of those terrible dates and commemorating all who sacrificed their lives in the defense of Kyiv and Ukraine.
