Moscow has tightened its security on the only bridge connecting it to Crimea following an explosion that killed three people yesterday.

Russian President Vladimir Putin has ordered the country’s Federal Security Service (FSB) to oversee the main connector to Crimea.

Parts of the bridge had to be immediately taken down after the blast, and divers have begun investigating the damage underneath the bridge below the waterline.

Moscow’s appointed governor of Crimea, Sergei Aksyonov says there is a clear desire for revenge from Ukraine against Russia. He adds that despite the situation being unpleasant, Moscow is managing it well.

The blast was caused by a truck exploding which saw seven railway carriages catching alight.
