Ukraine Hits Crimean Bridge, but Railway Undamaged; Russia Halts Grain Deal

KYIV, Ukraine — Ukraine attacked the Crimean Bridge, a key link from Russia to the illegally annexed Crimean peninsula, killing two people and disrupting vehicle traffic early Monday, Russian and Ukrainian officials said. A railroad line over the bridge — which is a vital artery for Russian troops and military supplies — escaped damage and quickly resumed service.

The strike on the bridge occurred hours before the Kremlin spokesman, Dmitry Peskov, announced that Russia would resume its military blockade of Ukrainian grain, canceling a deal that has allowed shipments from ports on the Black Sea despite wartime hostilities. The agreement, brokered by Turkey and backed by the United Nations, enabled crucial food supplies to reach developing countries, particularly in the Middle East and Africa.

Kyiv’s navy and special forces carried out the nighttime attack, saying drone boats blew up part of the structure, a Ukrainian official said, speaking on the condition of anonymity to discuss sensitive military operations. Ukrainian officials also reasserted their right to target the crossing because of its use in transporting military supplies.
