  Apple caves on demands to show Crimea as part of Russia in its apps Apple's Maps and Weather apps now display Crimea as a Russian territory when viewed from within the country. According to the BBC, the company was pressured by the State Duma to do so, and had originally suggested displaying Crimea as an "undefined territory". However, Apple finally caved to the Russian officials' demands, according to Vasily Piskaryov, chairman of the Duma security and anti-corruption committee. In contrast to Apple's Maps andRussia forcibly annexed the Crimean peninsula from Ukraine in 2014.

The construction of a bridge over the Amur River to link Russia and neighboring China has been completed in the Far East. The harsh weather conditions of the frigid region have been hampering cross - border trade for years, but the ambitious project is set to solve this problem.

Russia's Ministry for the Development of the Russian Far East and the Arctic said on Friday that the bridge is due to open to traffic in spring 2020, the news agency reported.

Construction of the bridge, which runs over the Amur river, involved building more than 12 miles (20 km) of new roads, and was carried out by a Russo-Chinese company.

"We are forming a new international transport corridor," Reuters quoted Vasily Orlov, the Amur region's governor, as saying. "It will allow us to fully reach our transit potential."

Russian state news agency TASS reported in January that the construction of the bridge started in 2016, and will cost an estimated 18.8 billion rubles.

The bridge is one of the latest construction projects designed to connect the two cities.

In 2020, a cross border cable car between Heihe and Blagoveshchensk, designed by Dutch architects UNStudio is due to open.

The journey time aboard the cable car between the cities will be approximately seven and a half minutes.
