Ukraine to print special stamp commemorating Kerch bridge attack

People in Kyiv take selfies in front of an artwork depicting Kerch bridge on fire

Ukraine’s postal service has said it will print a special stamp to commemorate the damage to the Kerch bridge.

The 12-mile road and rail bridge, which runs between Russia and Crimea, was ruined after a powerful truck explosion on Saturday.

Some of the damage has been repaired since then but it was still seen as a blow to Moscow’s annexation of the region.

It also took place a day after Putin’s 70th birthday.

The head of Ukraine’s National Security and Defence Council, Oleksiy Danilov, posted a video of the burning bridge on social media alongside a video of Marilyn Monroe singing Happy Birthday, Mr President.

Nobody has claimed responsibility for the attack on the bridge.

Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova has said Kyiv’s reaction to the destruction “testifies to its terrorist nature”.
