The Kerch (Crimean) bridge, illegally built by the Russians, has been operating in a limited mode after recent attacks, with some car lanes and the railway not working at full capacity.

Quote: "[The Russians] have put the bridge on ‘ventilation’ mode, so sometimes it closes and sometimes it opens, not working at full capacity. Some car lanes are still functioning, but in a limited mode and only for passenger transport. The railway is operating under a special programme, and is also very limited." 

Details: Humeniuk added that in this situation, this most powerful bridge artery, which connects Russia and temporarily occupied Crimea, is therefore not providing full-fledged logistics to the Russian occupiers.
