Kerch Strait Bridge sags increasingly, environmental problems inevitable – social networks

Putin’s project has already affected the Black Sea.

Blogger Stantsia Krym (“Crimea Station”) says the illegally built Kerch Strait Bridge in Russian-occupied Crimea, which connects Russia-occupied Crimea with Russia’s Krasnodar Krai, has been sagging more and more, which leads to serious environmental problems.

“It seems the bridge was created not for convenience, but to destroy everything around. There are constant incidents with it. Putin’s project has already affected the Black Sea. The bridge is sagging more and more, and the depth of the strait is decreasing, which results in huge environmental problems,” the blogger wrote on Twitter August 3.

As UNIAN reported earlier, Russia started building the Kerch Bridge back in April 2015. On May 15, 2018, the motorway part of the bridge was opened, connecting the Russian Krasnodar Krai with occupied Crimea. Railway traffic on the bridge will reportedly be launched on December 9-10.

    Might be time to get the beer and popcorn soon.

    • It’s a problem focus. Of course it would be nice if it crumbled into dust. But of course like all Russian made things the environmental effects would be catastrophic. A brave journo named Tom Rogan in 2018 published an article in the Washington Examiner titled “Ukraine should blow up Putin’s Crimea bridge”. I should imagine he has to keep a very low profile.

    • It seems to me, the main reason this illegal bridge was built was to prevent Ukraine from access to the Azov Sea which would hasten his takeover and land bridge to Transnistria. Where is the electric bridge? Where is the gas bridge? Where is the train bridge? Maybe we can’t blow it up but we could…accidentally….run into it…;)) Just say the Moskali interfered with the GPS signals.

What is your opinion?
