The crossing over the Kerch Strait, now the longest sea bridge in Europe, has been the subject of political tension since the 2014 annexation of the Crimean peninsula and city of Sevastopol by Russian Federation. The entire bridge is 19 km long and is the only direct road link between the two regions.
"We came to participate in the opening (of the bridge), to drive on it for the first time", said Aleksandr Karavayev, a resident of Sevastopol. Ukraine, the United States and the European Union have so far refused to acknowledge Crimea as part of Russian Federation.
"NATO condemns the construction and partial opening of Russian Federation to the bridge across the Kerch Strait between Russian Federation and Crimea", - quotes the DW representative of the Alliance of Pierre Casale. President Petro Poroshenko lambasted the bridge as "yet another piece of evidence of the Kremlin ignoring global law" and "an attempt to legitimise the temporary occupation of the Crimean peninsula". However, many USA residents believe that Vladimir Putin is on the right track, erecting bridges, and Donald trump, in turn, can build only walls.
Construction of the bridge began in February 2016. When a worker at the site told him in March as cameras rolled that the roadway was slated to open by the end of this year, Putin responded: "Can it be done by May?"
Two vehicle lanes have opened to the public today but the railway section of the bridge is not scheduled to be completed in late 2019. Prior to its creation, all traffic passed over the Kerch strait by ferry, or via a detour through Ukraine. And they tried later - nothing worked out.
