BREAKING GIFT FOR PUTIN'S BIRTHDAY Hard hit: How Crimean Bridge become key route for Russia and major target for Ukraine
Hard hit: How Crimean Bridge become key route for Russia and major target for Ukraine

RT explains the significance of the civilian and military transportation artery attacked on Saturday

The Russian anti-terrorism authorities said on Saturday that a truck bombing had damaged the strategic Crimean Bridge, which connects the peninsula with mainland Russia.

Traffic on the bridge has been closed off after the blast caused a partial collapse of the road section and a fire on the rail track.

The blast happened during Russia’s military operation in Ukraine and following threats from Kiev.

What is the Crimean Bridge?

The bridge through the Kerch Strait consists of two parallel sections: a four-lane road for vehicles and a double-track railway for passenger and freight trains.

It is 19 kilometers (11.8 miles) long and equipped with 35-meter (144.8 feet) arches, which allow ships to pass underneath.

When was it built?

There were no bridges between Crimea and Russia before 2018. Moscow unveiled plans for a bridge shortly after Crimea voted to leave Ukraine in the wake of the 2014 coup in Kiev and join Russia. It took four years to build and cost 228 billion rubles ($3.7 billion).

The road section was launched in May 2018, while rail service became fully operational in 2020. President Vladimir Putin described it at the time as “a symbol of Crimea’s reunification with Russia,” as well as a driver of the peninsula’s economy.

Key bridge linking Crimea to Russia hit by huge explosion
Section of Kerch bridge collapses after blast, seen as major blow to Russian military prestige

A huge explosion has destroyed part of the Kerch bridge from Russia to Crimea, a hated symbol of the Kremlin’s occupation of the southern Ukrainian peninsula, one of Vladimir Putin’s prestige projects and a vital logistical link for the Russian military.

A section of the Ukraine-bound road bridge collapsed into the Kerch strait after the blast, and a fierce fire engulfed a train on the parallel railway connection, creating a vast column of black smoke. The parallel road towards Russia still appeared passable in images from the blast site.
