Vladimir Putin has been beaten to being the first to cross a controversial new bridge, by a cat.
The multi-billion dollar bridge which stretches for 12-miles links Russia's Krasnodar region to the Crimea, a former region of Ukraine which Russia annexed from their neighbours in 2014 at the height of the conflict between the two nations.
Construction of the bridge began in 2015 and Putin would have been hoping to be the first person to make the journey - but it was a local cat that managed to make the trek a whole day before the Russian president.
Mostik the cat has become something of an internet celebrity in Russia since the construction of the bridge started and even has an Instagram account with more than 38,000 followers.
On Tuesday, 'Mostik' posted a picture of himself preparing to cross the bridge by foot.
