Fanfare and fireworks for the opening of the Russian-Chinese border bridge

Russia and China have opened a new cross-border bridge that builders say will cut 1,500 km (930 miles) from the distance Chinese goods travel to western Russia.

Moscow is seeking to increase trade with China after global sanctions hit the Russian economy following the war in Ukraine.

Builders on the Russian side say vehicles crossing the bridge will have to pay a toll of 8,700 rubles (£122).
