The President of Ukraine Vladimir Zelensky began to “do the right things”, deciding to personally check the readiness of the bridge across the Dnieper river, as did his Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin, opening the car traffic on the Crimean bridge. This opinion shared the head of Committee of the Crimean Parliament for interethnic relations Yuri HEMPEL, reports RIA Novosti.
“Zelensky started doing the right steps, taking the example of the leader of a world scale”, — said the Agency interlocutor. According to him, an example truly worth taking only the “positive leaders”.
HEMPEL added that if the Ukrainian President wants to take a ride on the Russian KAMAZ, it will also cause him to respect. In addition, said the head of the Committee, to Zelensky would be symbolic to go to the Russian Crimea, starting the visit with a trip to the Crimean bridge.
On 12 July it became known that the Ukrainian leader decided to personally check the readiness of the bridge across the Dnieper river, the first KAMAZ drive through it. In addition, the President made a bet with the mayor of the Dnieper Boris Filatov on the construction of the new bridge. “We agreed with the mayor Mr. Filatov, the 14th of September will be the Grand opening of the bridge, and if not, then Mr. Filatov will write a statement and resign”, he said.
Earlier, in may last year, the same way Putin did, opened the car traffic on the Crimean bridge, driving him behind the wheel of a KAMAZ in the head of a column of three dozen trucks. “Let’s go!” — the Russian leader said before to sit in the cockpit.
