Russia claims a truck bomb damaged a 19-kilometer Crimean bridge that cost billions of dollars to build.

According to Russia, the explosion set fire to seven oil tankers transported by train and collapsed two car lanes of the massive road and rail structure.

The bridge, which President Vladimir Putin personally inaugurated in 2018, is a critical transportation link for Russian soldiers fighting in Ukraine.

Crimean Parliament Speaker Vladimir Konstantinov has blamed the bridge damage on "Ukrainian vandals" and stated that it will be repaired soon.
