The Kerch Strait Bridge will be opened on May 15 or day later as the opening ceremony will take place with the participation of Vladimir Putin and the precise date depends on the schedule of the Russian president as Gazeta.ru reported citing the sources.
According to them, Russian President Vladimir Putin certainly will be present at the opening and the precise date depends on his schedule.
How exactly will the ceremony take place is unknown.
‘Probably, the traditional cutting of a red ribbon can take place in the middle of the bridge, in the central arch aisle which Putin visited in March’, the title noted.
The hundreds of the ‘Night Wolves’ bikers will the first to ride onto the bridge.
As we reported Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko ordered to sue Russia for the ecological damage brought by the construction of the bridge over Kerch strait in occupied Crimea.
U.S. Ambassador to Ukraine Marie Yovanovitch expressed confidence that the ongoing construction of the bridge over Kerch Strait could vastly interfere with Ukraine’s transport connection with international markets.
The Ukrainian side has withdrawn from the treaty with Russia on the construction of the bridge in 2014 after the annexation of Crimea.
The works on the construction have begun in May 2015, regardless the withdrawal.
