‘The temporary use of the constructed railway on the bridge is December 1, 2019’, reads the document released at the official website of legal information, Radio Liberty reports.  

In March 2014, immediately after Crimea’s annexation, Russian President Vladimir Putin said it’s necessary to build the bridge over the Kerch strait. The construction works were supposed to be over by 2018.  

Ukraine withdrew from the respective agreement with Russia in March 2014, as Russia occupied the peninsula.
