Russia officially opened a bridge to its annexed Crimean Peninsula on May 15, as Russian President Vladimir Putin drove a truck across the 19-kilometer span. In an address to officials and construction workers at Crimea's eastern tip, Putin said the bridge "will give the development of the economy of Crimea and Sevastopol a new momentum." (RTR via AP)
