Kerch bridge to Crimea

The Kerch Bridge (also known as the Crimean Bridge) connects Crimea to mainland Russia. Following Russia's illegal seizure of Crimea in 2014, the Russian government funded the construction of this bridge, which opened to car and train traffic in 2018. In October 2022, an explosion occurred on the bridge, leading to the closure of several lanes of traffic for a few months. According to the New York Times (linked below), Ukrainian forces orchestrated the explosion. Memes about the bridge tend to express happiness for Ukraine's military success in targeting a structure so central to Russia's claims to Crimea.
