Ukraine said it blew up a railway bridge in Russia's southwestern Samara region on Monday, March 4. 

The incident is the latest in a string of explosions targeting Russia's rail network, which Kyiv says Moscow uses to move troops and equipment for its invasion of Ukraine.

"On March 4, 2024, around 6:00 AM, the bridge was damaged by blowing up its power structures," Ukraine's Military Intelligence reported on Telegram.

According to HUR, Moscow reportedly used the bridge to transport military cargo, particularly engineering ammunition from the "Polimer" plant in Chapayevsk, Samara region.

Rail traffic in Russia's Samara region was suspended on Monday after an explosion on a bridge, as reported by Russian news agencies, citing rescue services.


The railway company released a statement attributing the incident to "an intervention by unauthorized individuals," noting that no injuries occurred.

"Rail traffic is currently halted at this section," the company added.

According to the official TASS agency, a source from the rescue services stated, "An explosive device damaged a pillar on a rail bridge" over the Chapaevka river.
