Russia has begun construction work on a bridge to Crimea, after its annexation from Ukraine. The multi-billion dollar project started two years ago after Russia seized control of the region following an unrecognised referendum on self-determination. The bridge is scheduled to open in 2018, and will provide a land and rail link across the Black Sea from the town of Taman, on the Russian mainland, to the Crimean port of Kerch.

The seafloor is too soft to support the bridge. Also it will not withstand any storms. But hey putin and his buddy will make millions, because of this bridge.

Russia will not be able to build a bridge to Crimea, because it pathetic belching, not power, and Putin is Hitler, not the creator.

This bridge is not only from Russia to Crimea but a new route connecting the World together for vehicle and train traffic improving the World transportation infrastructure.Anyone putting Sanctions on this work is blind and stupid think of all the new traffic through Crimea to the rest of the World not just Russia but the whole Middle east and orient.What countries claim in Crimea is a passing thing but the Kerch Bridge will serve mankind in transporting goods and people.Crimea was a Dead end Pennisula This Bridge will make it a Through route for the World.with lots of tourists from all over and increased business and will open Eurasia to Europe and vice/ ground traffic.They should make it a toll bridge at least to recover the costs and maintainance divided by Russia and Crimea.

'HitsOfRage' 3 months ago
To all the Pro-Russian writers: If Crimean population wants to be part of Russia, they are free to leave to Russia. Crimea is internationally accepted to be a part of Ukrainian territory. Besides, there is a fresh law in Russia to stop any current Russia-owned regions from acquiring independence from Russia, so the double standards behind the claim (Crimea is a part of Russia by election) couldn't be higher.

See you in Hague, pidarussian trolls The International Criminal Court (ICC) in The Hague has recognized the annexation of the Crimean peninsula as a military conflict between Russia and Ukraine, and a Russian occupation of Ukrainian territory.
