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.

Here it is "torn to shreds economy"! Here it is the annexation of the Crimea without bombs and with great investment! Here it is the real "Russia of the Middle Ages" without foreign technology! ))))))))) BBC, tell us about the new "Tavrida" in the Crimea, about two new power plants, about the new airport ... Tell us about the intolerable "Russian aggression" ... And tell us about the release of Iraq and Afghanistan that you are there after this "liberation" Leave except the ruins?

The reason why many countries support Russia is because is has long term goals, determination and decisiveness, and also dont care about west propaganda. Crimea, recognized or unrecognized by international community, it is now part of Russia and after the bridge, the bonds will be unbreakable. The fact is that EU and UK are getting smaller and smaller, while Russia is big and getting even bigger proves who is going in the right direction.

It is very funny to see how BBC is trying to support criminal regime in Kiev by using words like "annexation" and others. But they do not even know how far this fascist regime and propaganda gone since last 3 years. They still assuring each other that "THERE IS NO ANY BRIDGE, ITS RUSSIAS FAKE PICTURES". So this footage actually rips apart infant but wicked minds of poor maidownies and put their asses on fire. haha))

Poor Ukrainians, all they can ever do is whine and bicker. Everything they have (cities, factories and major infrastructure) is built by either by Imperial Russians, Poles or Soviets. I can't think of any major projects built solely by Ukrainians.

New bridge in Latvia , Riga over Daugava river (The Southern Bridge) which is only 800 m length and 34 m width cost 1 billion dollars. And Russia build 19 km - 3.5 billions ? And west dear to say anything about corruption ? Latvia is one of EU countries. If Latvia build 19 km bridge it will cost 83 billions . Ahaha. Just another catch on double standards with just simple math.

Solicito blanquearme de mis antecedentes penales y policíacos bajo el antecedente de autocrimen sexual porque la calumnia de violador sexual debió a mi masoquismo por la necrofilia voyeurista con la excusa de calumniarme de prevaricador para evolucionarme en la paz del mundo como mi delito involucrativo en mis actuales antecedentes penales y policíacos tanto de Guatemala como tambien de algunos países del mundo como en el caso Colmenares de Colombia por auxiliar a los implicados de secuestro en el indulto judicial. Ayer me gané un premio de 3 trillones de dólares en el internet con los Estados Unidos de América debido a que soy la encarnacion divina del ídolo yankee y del Dios yankee donde mis secuestradores pretendieron usurparme en la red web pero yo la desvié a toda la delincuencia que estaba emergiendo en el mundo, que por tal razón, el restaurante DOMINO'S PIZZA me quería inculpar en el sabotaje.

Russia didn't "annex" Crimea. There was a referendum in the same way the British held a referendum to exit the EU. What you were supposed to say years ago, was the the EU annexed the UK, or to be more truthful, there was a traitorous act of sedition that turned the UK over to the EU. That is the truth for British history, not the lie you speak about Crimea.

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' 7 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.
