Russian President Vladimir Putin on Tuesday drove a truck across a new bridge linking mainland Russia to Moscow-annexed Crimea.

Russian state television showed Putin dressed in jeans and a casual jacket sit behind the wheel of a construction truck with workers to drive 19 kilometres (12 miles) across the bridge, which links the Taman peninsula in southern Russia to Ukraine's Crimea peninsula annexed by Moscow in March 2014.
