"A terrorist act has been committed by blowing up three bridge pillars. The concrete structures were partially destroyed, but the reinforcement withstood the blast," he said, according to the local portal LuganskInformTsentr.

On Thursday morning, the "ministry's" website posted a message that the passage across the bridge was temporarily closed "for technical reasons."
