Russia to Construct Kerch Bridge Despite Any Sanctions


Russia will complete the construction of a bridge across the Kerch Strait despite Western pressure and possible sanctions. This came in a statement by Acting Head of the Crimean Republic Sergey Aksyonov on Tuesday.

“We are doing our part. We construct the land-based passage, the Kerch Bridge. The bridge will be built, and the tunnel will be constructed. All the decisions made by the Russian President will be fulfilled,” Mr. Aksyonov told reporters.

According to media reports, the statement comes in remarks to the calls by EU Incoming Foreign Policy Chief Federica Mogherini to increase sanctions against Russia and prevent the construction of a transport corridor linking Crimea with Russia.
