Vladimir Putin opened the Kerch Strait Bridge Tuesday -- a large connector that connects Russia's Krasnodar region with Crimean land Moscow annexed four years ago. Putin led a convoy of 35 vehicles across the bridge, which took 16 minutes to cross.

"It is historic because in different historical epochs, even during the tsarist rule, people dreamt of building this bridge," he said at the ceremony. "Finally, thanks to your labor and your talent this project, this miracle has come true."
