The state news agency Ria Novosti on Monday distributed videos showing the Kremlin chief at the wheel of a Mercedes driving on the damaged section of the bridge. The bridge leads from the Russian mainland to the Ukrainian peninsula of Crimea, annexed by Moscow since 2014. It is considered a multi-billion dollar prestige object of the Kremlin.

Deputy Prime Minister Marat Chusnullin reported to Putin on the work. Russian media had previously reported that car traffic had resumed.
