Russia built a bridge across the Kerch Strait is a sham propaganda project, multiple violations during the construction made the structure extremely unreliable. This “observer” said the Minister on the temporarily occupied territories and internally displaced persons of Ukraine Vadym Chernysh.
“Bravado on the part of the builders of the bridge that the bridge is supposedly so strong that can withstand any earthquake, is not true. In fact, the bridge design is not the same as pointed out by Russian specialists. He is now in a calm state is moving when no earthquakes”, — said the official.
Blackie assured that the bridge moves in different directions: “relatively speaking, some parts of the bridge rise up, others move down. This is because, first, this place is built, and secondly, because of the design… at the expense of satellite images from different angles we see different parts of the bridge move in opposite directions. Stress is created for the canvas on which the moving cars”.
“We noted numerous violations of internationally accepted practices during construction. Despite Russian propaganda, we empirically brought to the public that, in our opinion, this is just fake propaganda project and it carries a threat and for those moving on the bridge and navigation”, — said the Minister.
Blackie also said that now Russia is allegedly experiencing problems with the construction of access roads to the Crimean bridge. In addition, he said, with the construction of facilities was not taken into account the water inflow from the Azov to the Black sea, carrying additional silt deposits to the supports of the Crimean bridge.
Test the bridge for strength, in which participated the President of Russia Vladimir Putin, the Ukrainian Minister called fake. “In the test mode drove a few Trucks headed by the President for such construction is not a burden. In Soviet times, tanks were driven, and then several Trucks, and it is unknown whether Laden. For tests it’s ridiculous,” concluded Blackie.
Vladimir Putin opened the car traffic on the Crimean bridge across the Kerch Strait in may 2018. Structure with a total length of 19 kilometers connected the Peninsula of the Crimea and the Krasnodar territory became the longest in Russia.
The opening of the railway part of the bridge is expected in 2019.
