Crimean Bridge traffic suspended – Russia-installed operator


(Reuters) – Traffic on the main bridge linking the Russian mainland with the Crimean Peninsula which Russia annexed from Ukraine in 2014 has been temporarily suspended, the Russian-installed operator of the bridge said early on Sunday.

The administration did not disclose the reason for the suspension in the statement on its Telegram messaging channel.

The Crimean Bridge has been a target of increased air and sea drone attacks in recent months.
