The Netherlands is going to check the activity of two Dutch companies in the Russian-occupied Crimea; these enterprises may be involved in construction of the bridge over Kerch Strait, linking the occupied peninsula and the mainland Russia. Lilianne Plaumen, the Dutch minister of foreign trade and development, said that as quoted by state-run TV and Radio Company NOS.

According to Plaumen, even if there were no law infringements, the Ducth government ‘expects that the companies lead international business in the socially responsible manner’.

De Gelderlander newspaper reported that Dematec Equipment company built a construction vehicle, while the other one, Bijlard Hydrauliek, supplied ‘the most important spare parts for this vehicle’.

Directors of the companies deny accusation of any law infringements. One of them pointed out that the company constructed vehicle on the territory of the Russian Federation, which does not contradict the EU sanctions against the Kremlin.  The other one said he simply did not know that the vehicle and its spare parts would be involved in construction works in Crimea.
