KYIV: Car traffic was briefly suspended over the Crimea bridge on Saturday, Russian authorities said, a move often made because of expected or actual attacks.

Traffic resumed less than an hour later, authorities said in a message on the Telegram messaging app. The bridge connects mainland Russia to Crimea which Moscow annexed from Ukraine in 2014 but which Kyiv still considers its territory.
